Working at the Madlyn & Leonard A Center for Jewish Life, I was the acting program coordinator for four years. My creativity, program development, and social input contributed to over 55 residents getting outside, learning more about their neighbor, and taking an interest in diversifying their regular schedule, Patrons had health issues such as dementia, vision loss, hearing loss, numerous cancers, walking challenges, and diabetes, etc. Outside of those conditions, some the residents had other mental, physical, emotional disorders as well. To combat issues like Alzheimer's, I designed discussions which would trigger their memory and encourage interaction.
