They’re model residents.

Seniors at Caton Park Nursing Home in Ditmas Park did their little turn on the catwalk, yeah, at the center’s annual fashion show on June 18. This is the 20th year the facility has staged the couture celebration and organizers say it may have been the best one yet.

“Each year it gets better and better,” said Aude Marie Laroche, the director of activity at the center, which is on Caton Road at Rugby Road. “They enjoy it so much and have so much fun.”

Twenty-five of the facility’s 100 residents, aged between 56 to 94, donned their finest duds and took to the runway in front of friends and relatives. Laroche said the event was so warm and positive, she felt like a member of the family, too.

“In my mind, I feel like I’m doing it from my grandma and grandpa,” she said.
