"Family is Forever" at Corcoran House

Thursday, October 19, 2017

The theme for this year's National Assisted Living Week (Sept. 10th - 16th) was "Family is Forever", so our team at Corcoran House in Clinton, MA took that theme and ran with it!

 

They hosted a big staff & resident game of Family Feud one day, residents made their own family tree another day and they also got everyone together to take one big Corcoran House family picture!


 

In addition, the team also hosted the Alzheimer's Association for a program called Effective Communication Strategies that was open to the public as well as residents' families. This explored communication changes due to dementia and the skills needed to successfully connect and communicate throughout the disease process. 


 

Corcoran House residents have been doing a lot of fall related activities recently, one of them being to build a scarecrow.


 

And of course, last but not least Corcoran House  hosted service dogs in training! The residents loved having these well behaved puppies visit them!

Thanks to the great team at Corcoran House for hosting so many amazing events for their residents and sharing photos!
