Bartlett Woods’ continues its sponsorship of free documentary films on Saturday, May 12th, 2PM at The Strand Theatre, 345 Main Street, Rockland. The one-day-only screening of Cyber Seniors is a co-presentation between Bartlett Woods Retirement Community and The Strand Theatre.

“We are delighted to be back at The Strand to co-present another special film,” confirmed Mary Eads, Executive Director of Bartlett Woods. “We hope that seniors, their families, caregivers, friends, and healthcare professionals will join us. We love the idea of helping to bring the generations together, and are impressed that this fun and inventive film was created by teenagers. Thank you to The Strand for joining us in this effort.”

Cyber Seniors is a humorous and heartwarming documentary feature. It chronicles the extraordinary journey of a group of colorful senior citizens as they discover the world of the Internet through the guidance of teenage mentors. Their exploration of cyber-space is catapulted to another level when 89 year-old Shura decides to create a YouTube cooking video. A spirited video competition for the most “views” evolves as the cyber-seniors’ hidden talents and competitive spirits are revealed. Cyber-Seniors provides insight into the wonderful things that can happen when generation gaps are bridged, proving you are never too old to get ‘connected’. The film runs 75 minutes.

Admission is by donation, and donations will benefit the Bartlett Woods Fundraising campaign and The Strand Theater.

After Party: Following the screening, the public is invited to a pie and coffee After Party at Bartlett Woods, 20 Bartlett Drive (off Talbot Avenue) in Rockland. We hope to see you there!

It’s Spring!


It’s SPRING and I can hear the birds outside of my office window!


I want to share with you some of the plans we have been busy making.


Melina, our gardener is back and we look forward to the long awaited fresh flowers that she ensures surround Bartlett Woods each year.


Chef Aaron has been giving us lots of fun dining experiences over the month of March with plans of continuing the trend into April.  We recently enjoyed Italian ravioli day in our beautiful dining room which consisted of different varieties of ravioli accompanied by special sauces that residents were able to customize to their liking.  Salad and homemade garlic bread were included in the buffet as well as desert which I was too full to sample but was told was memorable.  A couple of weeks following ravioli day the dining room was transformed to mimic a New York deli where all of the fixings were laid out and everyone was able to create or order their own unique sandwich.  We have been promised many more special menus in the upcoming days and very much look forward to it.


The activities department has been busy making plans for the summer season with some really big shows, talks, and musical entertainment.  Karen and Darlene have scheduled a 21 piece jazz ensemble and hopefully the weather will give us a beautiful day to host an outdoor event.  We are most excited for a mystery dinner theater group that Karen is looking to schedule as a surprise event for our Bartlett Woods residents.


Today, we are looking forward to Mimi Edmunds, Documentary Producer, who will be speaking about her documentaries and the time she spent working with the “60 Minutes” broadcast.


Lastly, as always, we are anxiously waiting for DORMANS to open so we can enjoy our favorite coastal sweet treat!


Remember our art exhibit is still available for viewing every day from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm through June 2018.


Please stop by and say hello!
