Life Enrichment Center at Oyster Bay

Wisdom & Wonder TV


Two Long Island nursing facilities have teamed up with us to produce a series of television shows to engage older adults stuck at home while some community centers are still closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Paragon Management’s Excel at Woodbury for Rehabilitation and Nursing and Lynbrook Restorative Therapy and Nursing have joined with The Life Enrichment Center to produce “Wisdom and Wonder” for North Shore TV.

The show airs Sundays at 9:00 am on public access TV, which is Channel 20 on Optimum and Channel 37 on FIOS, which serves 14 incorporated villages along the north shore of Long Island. There are currently plans in the works to expand the show’s distribution to other public access stations, according to Paragon Management.
