From Bingo to Putt Putt Golf, nothing warms our resident’s hearts more than helping our community. With our weekly activity, Helping Hands, Aravilla allows residents to feel that their help is wanted and appreciated. This month we had our Aravilla Family all come together to prepare, assemble, and decorate our dining room flower vases.
Early on in Alzheimer’s and related dementias, people experience changes in thinking, memory, and reasoning in a way that affects daily life and activities. Their relationships, environment and support all shape their current experience. Through helping hands, this need to be needed is met. Creating a system that allows us to all work together fulfills our residents’ needs to help our community. Following smiles and laughter during this activity, they then can admire their work as we display the vases in our dining rooms for everyone to enjoy.
