Senior Living Houston: Welcome Monica Muniz, Activity Director

Social interaction, activities, companionship and making new friends are key reasons many seniors choose to move to a senior living community. It’s convenient to be able to walk out of your apartment and enjoy activities, including entertainment, and one’s neighbors. At Treemont, the goal is to sponsor activities that our current residents value. We’ve been fortunate to have Activity Director Nikki Andress at the helm for most of 2018. We are now welcoming another experienced Activity Director Monica Muniz to the Treemont family.

Monica says, “I envision my role is to fulfill the lives of our residents with active engaging activities such as exercise, outings, brain games and socials that will be beneficial for our residents.” This includes working with the community to bring in relevant instructors, performers, and speakers as well as designing appropriate programs.

Senior Living Houston: Spotlight on Food Server Deborah Hughes

Treemont provides three meals daily, seven days a week, which is atypical for most independent living communities.

The dining room team members play a key role in the dining experience — and Food Service Server Deborah Hughes is a new team member that epitomizes the type of food service employee Treemont desires.  “Deborah is the most positive individual we have on our team!

Senior Living Houston: Spotlight on Activity Director Nikki Andress

Social interaction, companionship, and making new friends are key reasons many seniors choose to move to a senior community. It’s convenient to be able to walk out of your apartment and enjoy activities, entertainment, and intellectual programs all in your own community. At Treemont, our goal is to sponsor activities that our current residents value. With our new Activity Director Nikki Andress at the helm, this retirement community in Houston is taking the opportunity to re-evaluate its activity program. The March 12th Activity Planning Meeting was the first of four quarterly meetings to be held in 2018.

The most popular ideas from the survey will debut in the April Activity Calendar.

Nikki says, “My role is to coordinate programs that will be interesting,

Senior Living Houston: Spotlight on Maintenance Director Don Ibanez

Treemont Maintenance Director Don Ibanez has been a consistent, reassuring presence on the Treemont Campus for 34 years. Everyone at Treemont knows Don’s name and talks about him and his oversight of the Maintenance Department with awe and amazement. He is Treemont’s “rock star” on campus.

No more maintenance!” Don makes a point to make this desire a reality.
