The CARES group activities are designed to promote wellness for those
seniors who are in need of enhancement and maintenance of productivity
in socialization, mobility, cognition and quality of life.
There is a saying, "THE SHARPER THE BLAST, THE SOONER 'TIS PAST". The
CARES group is in great anticipation of Spring! We all have "had it" with the cold
and snowy Winter and we will begin to welcome Spring with many activities to pass
the days in March until then. The first week we will learn about the Jewish festival of
Purim and bake Hamantashen cookies to go along with the story of the holiday. Then
it is onto the joyous holiday of St. Patrick's Day with wisdom, wit, and humor portrayed
by games, limericks, and music of the Irish people. Following our week long
celebration of St. Patrick, the CARES group will direct their attention to all things
"greening up" for Spring. There is much to look forward to in March.
Limited Space is available. Please call Andrea Cofrancesco at 860-648-6357.
