Here’s an update on all the wonderful intergenerational activities our residents have been enjoying this summer.

Senior friends from the Jewish Home and Care Center attended graduation and a dinner in honor of their little friends at Mequon Jewish Preschool on June 1st.

6th and 7th grade girls from Yeshiva Elementary School visited participants at the Adult Day Center. The students helped make  purple jewelry that was sold at a sale held to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.

Teens from area high schools have been trained as Memory Care Assistants for the Memory Care Center at Sarah Chudnow Community. The teens get to know the residents by playing games and doing art activities with them. They then create a memory board for each resident to keep in her room to share her life story with others.

Fifty campers from B’nai B’rith Beber Camp in Mukwonago took a walk to the lakefront with residents from the Jewish Home and Care Center

Residents at Sarah Chudnow Community and 60 campers from the JCC Gesher Camp were entertained with singing and dancing by the Israel Scouts Friendship Caravan on July 11.
