Making nearly everything from scratch, our talented chefs got to show off their culinary skills. Watch the video below to find out what Collingswood resident's and associate's favorite dessert is!
[Music] each one of our judges will give each score a number at the end of the judging through back to each dessert and we'll pick the person who has the highest score in ll be our signature dessert they're going to have a dessert that's going to represent us and our community when we go out and market what we do and I think that's a pretty pretty special thing while I grid for you and I know that the resident also like Melba sauce and I had a little coffee too the flavors good everybody here's put so much effort in and I think it's a great day it's to celebrate the talent in the kitchen you know it's pretty cool for a kitchen to get a voice like that we go I made today for the only dessert is peach bread pudding today I made the the creme brulee puff how am I supposed to lose weight in this cream so luscious and somehow light he said he made it hard to get down oh my god over top of it what's the Apple what it tastes like the cream puffs and the good old fashioned chocolate chip cookies I want to do a cartwheel and then take it out yeah we have Samantha's I guess the hardest part is that each individual cook believes in their dessert they presented their dessert so you're not only Justin to taste the appearance of the dessert but you're judging the cook as well it's kind of hard to separate here no one are having a personal relationship with each individual cook just a very tasting on a dessert [Music] so after much deliberation and burping in Alliant we're all pretty full we all agree we're not having dinner tonight so before I announce the winners I would just like to say that I would be proud to have any one of these desserts served in our community for our residents - so the first runner-up is Leila's flan [Applause] [Music] that's first runner-up and the winner and our new signature dessert is Sheila and Victor double chocolate [Applause] [Music] you

Listen to UMC Collingswood Executive Director Jim Clancy speak about continuing care.
[Music] the idea years ago was that you you would basically wait until a crisis happened you got sick you needed continuous care and you would move into a nursing home and unfortunately that notion is still out there that that's all we have to offer when clearly it's not we offer so many different levels of care that you can actually move into one of these communities as a very independent person you can take part in all the great things that we have going here you can live a very vibrant and abundant lifestyle you can come and go as you please you know you can have a car you can do your own cooking you can do whatever you need to do and then if if the time comes where you do need a little bit more care you really don't have to go anywhere else you just stay here and we bring the care to you if you start the process early on when when you're still very independent you get the benefit of enjoying what a community has to offer you get social interaction you get all kinds of activities and things to do to keep you active and keep you vibrant but yet you know you still get to maintain your independence you should don't get to come and go as you please and I think that's another misconception that people feel that they're going to move into an institution when really you know the only thing that's that's different is your address [Music]
