I just want to quickly say a BIG thank you for the bags you dropped off for our residents! That was so thoughtful of you and the coloring and puzzle books are going to good use as we try to keep our residents busy during this challenging time. I just wanted to thank you for your kindness.
Residents do not feel forgotten or alone. Instead, we see their expressions of joy and gratitude knowing that someone out there is caring for them…
What could have been a long lonely time for many of our residents instead gave hope and reminders that there were people out there that truly cared about them and their wellbeing.
Brighten A Day really does brighten a day.
Thank you so much. You are awesome!!! Thanks again to you and all your volunteers!! We can’t tell you enough how much these cards mean to our Memory Care residents. They are suffering from Dementia and Alzheimers and to see their faces light up with these is very heartwarming.
