Bridging the Generations: Assisted Living Senior Prom

Terri Glimcher, our contributing writer and assisted living activities expert has out-done herself again.

As she has written about before, her “Bridging the Generations” program has for years sought to connect the generations, sharing the unique lessons people learn and carry throughout their lives.

In late February, she added another wonderful event to what I believe is one of the most amazing activities programs in the country.  On February 27, The “Chinese New Year”-themed senior prom was held at Emeritus’ Summerville Oak Park in Clermont, Florida.

The Orlando Sentinel covered the event live.  I’d like to share that story and congratulate Terri for another fantastic job.  She’ll be back next week to share the “behind-the-scenes” details and photos with everyone.

Note: I have been trying to convince Terri to start teaching her activity-planning techniques.  If you are at a community and would like more information, please contact me directly and I’ll make an introduction.
