Girl Scout troop #904 visits with our residents regularly and are natural caregivers. When conducting activities, they are creative and they look to enjoy the activity themselves. This makes them very successful. On this day, they decided to read to individuals. In addition to being interesting and fun for our residents, it is mentally stimulating. The listener focuses, then envisions characters and scenes. (If it is a story the listener knows, long term memories are accessed.) They also played Bingo. And they sat with residents and asked them questions. This makes a senior feel valued. And it is also accesses long term memories. Thank you to the Girl Scouts for your thoughtfulness, expertise and community service.
