Several times per year we at Carrington Court Assisted Living are lucky enough to host some of the senior U of U students. These students spend 12 Saturdays with us as part of a project in which they help our residents exercise their bodies and minds. This group of students has been one of the best we have had to date. All of the residents love them as well as our staff. Every Saturday has seen a new, unique game or activity and it has been a joy to watch the residents’ faces light up for each one they have been introduced to. See below how big our smiles are for the parachute activity. Our current group is getting close to the end of their time with us and while we are sad to see them go we are excited to see what the future holds for them. Cameron, Ali, Hunter, and Max we are truly thankful for all you have done and wish you well as you go on to your Masters and Doctoral work.
