Crazy 8’s: Elevating Mind & Spirit
Though homebound with Parkinson’s, Ms. Wright* loves a good game of cards and Crazy Eights is her favorite! That’s why we trained Jackie*, a caregiver for Griswold Home Care of Stratford on the rules of the game, along with a few other games to change it up and increase the challenge! Crazy Eights continues to be the highlight of Ms. Wright’s day.
Gift of Giving: Elevating the Spirit
For many people, spreading joy also makes us feel better ourselves. Mr. Wright* is one of those people! When the days start growing darker and Mr. Wright’s spirits begin to dim, Eugene* suggested an outing to the local Walmart that was having a sale on fleece blankets. 100 blankets later, Mr. Wright and Eugene were at the local soup kitchen, handing out blankets to the homeless. When they returned later that afternoon, Mr. Wright had a new spark and community members in need enjoyed the gift of warmth.
