Description: 

The Alzheimer’s Association Connecticut Chapter is partnering with the Yale Day of Service to offer a virtual family activity. You are encouraged to create decorative cards at home with your family that will be shared with elderly residents who are memory impaired and living in Senior Living facilities.  The cards can be for any occasion – Happy Birthday, Thinking of You, tell a Joke, draw a picture… using materials you have on hand… paper, markers, crayons, stickers, glitter - whatever you think will bring a smile or cheer to a Senior who is unable to get out and about.  Please take pictures of your creations (and creators) and share them on social media using #YaleDayOfService and #YaleAlumni. When we are able once again to get out and about, I will make arrangements to gather the cards and deliver them to various facilities.
