Client Appreciation Day

Recently, on a beautiful Spring day, 37 of our clients and their caregivers gathered on the grounds of YMCA’s Camp Ingersoll to simply enjoy a day of fun. After a long and brutal winter which brought us snow into April, we were all grateful to luxuriate in the crisp, fresh air of Spring. For many of the population we serve, social isolation is a real problem. It’s a priority for our team to create opportunities for individuals to gather in the community in order to stimulate their minds and bodies.

Our clients were offered a full menu of activities:

  • Painting sunsets on canvas
  • Planting succulents and painting clay pots
  • Pet therapy from Tails of Joy
  • Caricature sketches
  • Live music
  • Bingo
  • Laughing yoga

In the end, everyone went home with a smile and a memory. It may have been in the form of a physical object or a feeling of overwhelming joy. It’s just a reminder for all that sometimes all we need is a little change in our daily routine to rejuvenate the soul.

 

From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.

-Winston Churchill
