At Argent Court, we are constantly looking for new and meaningful activities to engage residents. We play bingo and exercise but we also engage the residents in meaningful activities that make a difference. One such example in one of our communities, we have partnered with a local Lutheran Church to help make quilt tops that get sent all over the world through Lutheran World Relief. Here’s a link to the website: http://lwr.org/quilts. We recently took a group a residents to church for the quilt dedication and it was great to see their reaction. They walked around picking out the quilts they had made.
No matter how old a person is, they want to know they have made a difference. Keeping our residents involved in meaningful activities is just another way to help not only the community but the residents. It’s a win win!
