Words From Senior Centers

"Intergenerational Love and support from all ages! Without being able to welcome visitors into our communities over these past few weeks, we’ve been particularly missing the energy and happiness of children in our halls. Intergenerational programs are an important part of our communities. But like all other things we are adjusting and finding new ways to connect kids and seniors together. We are thrilled to share an online art gallery provided by San Ramon students – all sisters. We want to thank Apara Sai Jella, a caring high school sophomore, and her sisters, Ghrini 4th grade, and Sri Tulaja Jella, a preschooler. Recognizing that seniors sheltering in place could use all the color they can get in these challenging times, these sisters created an online library of hundreds of pieces of uplifting artwork and they were kind enough to give us access to all of it so that we can share them with our seniors! These kids are proving that heroes truly come in all shapes and sizes, and no effort to help is too small." - Aegis Living

"Oh my goodness these are lovely! It definitely shows how much love and effort went into these beautiful cards. Due to the Coronavirus, our residents have been staying in their rooms since March 13th. This has been quite challenging to keep their spirits up. Also the fact that they cannot have their loved ones near. It is people like you that make such a significant difference in their daily lives. I will show them in individually on my laptop. With the amount of cards, this will be a beneficial and continuous tool. I can also print them out for many user, including decorating their rooms."

"We have printed most (but, honestly, not all) of the cards and began distributing them to our residents this week. The residents have all appreciated receiving the cards and they bring smiles to their faces. The cards are all very colorful and creative which is a big help for residents who may have difficulty reading small print or who do not speak English. Thank you very much for sharing these inspirational and encouraging cards with our residents!"

"Wow, these cards are beautiful! Thank you so much for all the hard and wonderful work that you, Ghrini, and Tulaja put into these cards. The seniors in our community are sure to love them! I will add them to our website shortly! Thanks again for doing this..."
