What comes to mind when you think
about the Big Band Era of the 1940s?
Jazz, swing, orchestras, and of course,
nightclubs! Nightclubs in big cities were
the breeding ground for rising stars,
dancing, gambling, and music. You
could expect to have an excellent meal,
fine cocktails, and first- rate
One popular Miami Beach nightclub
was the Latin Quarter, where the
winter crowds were entertained by
Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin & Jerry
Lewis, Jack Benny, and Tony Bennett.
They performed with the high kicking
chorus girls performing three shows per
In Chicago, the most popular nightclubs
included Trianon Ballroom, and Club DeLisa.
Big name performers seen here were the
Andrew Sisters, Louis Armstrong, Polly
Bergan, and Nat King Cole.
New York City was the home of the Monte
Carlo and The Stork Club. Also in New York
City was the most famous and notorious of all
nightclubs, The Copacabana, which opened
its doors in 1940. This nightclub, located in
the heart of Manhattan, opened with seating
for 400 people. However, by 1955 they were
forced to double their size and create seating
for 800. The Copacabana had all the top
names and famous faces of the entertainment business during this time period.
In celebration of Big Band music and
nightclubs, we will have our own version of a
nightclub. This month, Malvern Nursing and
Rehab will be open and waiting to serve our
residents cocktails, appetizers, and of course,
music! Come join us for the fun.

Elvis Returns to Malvern!
The day was August 16, 1977,
and the whole world mourned
over the death of Elvis
80,000 people lined the
processional route to Forest
Hill Cemetery. The world
would never be the same.
On August 10, 2012, Malvern
Nursing and Rehabilitation
will proudly host “ELVIS” in
our facility. This amazing
impersonator, Mr. Butch
Dicus, has been entertaining
nursing home residents for
many years. He has said, “There
is only one Elvis Presley, but it is
always great to rekindle old
familiar feelings a certain song
brings back to mind.” We at
MN&R have experienced this
first-hand when watching our
residents with dementia singalong as Mr. Dicus performs at
our home. Thank you for
bringing back the memories, Mr.
I recently had the pleasure of sitting in
on a culture change workshop with Dr.
Richard Taylor, Ph.D. as the guest
speaker. This man was obviously very
knowledgeable on the subject of
Alzheimer’s Disease. In fact, Dr. Taylor
was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s 10
years ago and is able to describe firsthand what it is like to live with this
disease. His presentation was blunt,
funny, and extremely informative. Dr.
Taylor’s main objective is to remind
people that even with Alzheimer’s, he
is still a man, husband, father, and
Our mission is to enable our
residents to live life to its
fullest, regardless of age or
health, with compassion,
dignity, and caring support.
grandfather. “I am still Richard, a
whole and complete human being. I
am not becoming any less of a person
simply because I cannot remember
like you do, talk like you do, or think
like you do.” Dr. Taylor’s book,
Alzheimer’s From the Inside Out, is an
award-winning, very informative
book. He is also the author of Live
Outside the Stigma.
