Ladies at Journey Senior Living of Valparaiso were pampered Saturday morning during the first annual “Mom-Mosa and Makeover” event. The assisted living and memory care community transformed their dining area with feminine decor as residents and their guests enjoyed brunch, mimosas, live entertainment, and a Mary Kay makeover.
Resident Dolores Browne loves her home at Journey Senior Living. Browne moved in last year when the facility first opened, and she takes advantage of the fun activities and events. Both of Browne’s daughters visited for “Mom-Mosa.”
“Today is a great example of all the great things that they do for us,” Browne said. “You can be busy every minute of the day if you wanted to.”
With Mother’s Day right around the corner, Mary Salgado, Mary Kay Consultant and Journey Senior Living Consierge, pitched the idea of a Mary Kay experience for residents. The spark of that idea lead to include other aspects of the brunch and the “Mom-Mosa” was born.
“I was so excited when they told me we could do this!” Salgado said. “Every women needs to be pampered because every woman is special.”
For Salgado, she wanted to make women at the center feel special. She said mothers do so much for their families and take care of so many things, so it is important to give back to them. There were facials, satin hands, and samples of makeup for the residents and their guests. All of the ladies, even great-grand-daughters, got their own sample kit with all of the tools they needed.
“They walked out of here feeling good,” Salgado said. “That’s what it’s all about.”
Renie Willamson, Mary Kay Consultant, was there to help Salgado with the pampering. Williamson noted that residents love to have their families there and to have activities that everyone can enjoy. Williamson was manning the satin hand area, and Salgado helped with the facials and makeup.
“It’s important to pamper ladies all of the time, not only moms,” Williamson said. “It’s about feeling beautiful.”
