About the Rose Kleiner Center: I like all the activities here, especially the music program and the Hope discussion group run by the social worker.
Dad will brag to visitors that before he started going to the Avenidas Rose Kleiner Center, he couldn't even bend over and touch his knees, but now he can almost touch his toes, and he'll prove it. He's even lost 18 pounds since enrolling.
About the Village: My parents have a Village! To you readers, I send the grateful, full-hearted greetings of a daughter of this Village. I have heard much about Avenidas Village over the past years. My folks, Joy and Dick Scott, are active, dedicated members. This spring, I had a chance to directly participate in an Avenidas Village event: the "Look Good, Do Good" benefit show featuring my Mom's and Molly Agras' astonishing jewelry creations. I was able to experience firsthand the kind, committed staff and many other enthusiastic Village people who came by to volunteer, shop, visit, kibitz, and celebrate. From this Village daughter's perspective, I see that my folks' social world is not shrinking, it is expanding! New connections, good support, new friends, (and reconnecting with old acquaintances), less fear, more expansiveness, and a strong sense of interconnecting community. What a blessing! For our entire family, I say well done, Avenidas Village! Keep up the good work, and thanks!
