We realize that changing one's home can be an uneasy process. To adjust to change, we help new residents develop a comfort zone as soon as possible. Our new resident, Mr. Roberts, enjoys playing cards. So we deal. The game provides an interactive environment in which to make new friends, an opportunity to be competitive and challenged, and is just plain fun. It creates a great opportunity for the staff to get better acquainted with him, as well. We play and chat, getting to know his likes, dislikes, needs and desires. Not only is there these social benefits in playing cards, but also a physical benefit that helps hand-eye coordination. Welcome Mr. Roberts!
