Maple­ton seniors make do­na­tion

Serve Daily - - EMPOWERING LIBERTY -

The Se­nior Cit­i­zens of Maple­ton gath­ered re­cently at the The Ab­bing­ton As­sisted Liv­ing & Mem­ory Care Com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity for a tour of the build­ing and a lun­cheon pro­vided by the Ab­bing­ton. Many hours of work and sev­eral fundrais­ers re­sulted in the seniors be­ing able to se­cure funds to buy iPads and ex­tra equip­ment for the Alzheimer’s pa­tients at the Ab­bing­ton. The pur­pose of the iPads was for mu­sic down­loaded for the pa­tients to lis­ten to. This pro­gram be­gan at the Univer­sity of Utah and has been uti­lized in many fa­cil­i­ties to help pa­tients be alert and re­spon­sive. It was the cul­mi­na­tion of a dream come true for the seniors that have worked so hard to bring this to pass.
