HUNTINGTON BEACH...They are the historians of the world today. They have seen more historical events in their lives then all the history students in universities and colleges combined. They go by many names: elder statesmen, oldster, old fogey, old timer, sexagenarian, octogenarian or just senior citizen and in their 80 and 90 years have seen the world's history unfold before their eyes.

When seniors get to advance age, medical treatment is needed for them in nursing homes. But how would a younger relative know how good these facilities are for their loved ones?

On Friday, May 19th the Beachside Nursing Center on Garfield Ave. invited Huntington Beach Mayor Barbara Delgleize to their special open house. They just recently received a five star rating for 2017-2018, the highest rating for a nursing home. The government rates each senior nursing center on a 1 to 5 star basis with 5 star being the best of all others.

"We are very proud of attaining the highest standard said Beachside Administrator Nathan Beck."

When people arrive at the senior facility they are greeted at the desk by Ari Corona who will direct then to the right room or area.

"We have 59 beds in our facility and 130 employees looking after patients," Beck said.

Beck had been managing the center for two years and this is the second five star rating the center has received which makes Beack and the staff very happy. He is so proud of his staff and the patients who have help give the center its highest rating. Friday Beck was with his wife and young son Truman at this happy event.

Most rooms contain two beds for two patients, a rec room, managed workout room, a dinning area for meals, etc.

The center was decorated with colored balloons and several snack trays throughout the center with goodies on them.

So the next time you need an answer for a history question, go ask a senior, they may have just been there.

Don't forget a senior in your own family, get to know them, learn what it was like when they were growing up and if they are in a hospital or a nursing facility, go see them often before something happens to them and thar history is lost forever.
