Our wonderful medical team here at EHL always goes above and beyond and we really appreciate them. Nurse Dave, one of our Health Services Coordinators, loves to take the time to talk, sing and dance to a good tune with our residents, as he makes his rounds on campus. Music is very important, as it creates positive interactions, promotes gentle exercise, helps alter mood and reduces stress. We here at EHL highly recommend music and dance everyday.
So, what is happening in the old meadow? We are building an interactive park for persons with memory loss. When it is all done, there will be a covered pavilion with a roof that opens and closes to allow folks to sit out there and visit without getting too hot or too wet. The path, made out of recycled tires and water permeable material, has a handrail on one side and will have garden boxes, rocks and other fun objects to look at and touch. We will have more trees, flowers, shrubbery and other plants by next summer. Soon, the whole park will have wrought iron fencing to allow for security and optimal visibility. Lastly, along the back wall, we have our beautiful mural painted by Roma Gilman with help from our own Felipe Jimenez.
