Showing Appreciation for Our Volunteers

Our Encinitas facility in North County yesterday held a Volunteer Appreciation Day. Our participants made chocolate chip cookies and then presented each volunteer with a hand-decorated vase of tissue paper that appeared as stained glass and filled with fresh flowers. The participants were the artisans on the vases too.

Our Alzheimer's Family Centers has a wonderful group of people who volunteer their time and talent to help with various types of therapies -- particularly music, dance, art and pets -- that are always a highlight of the centers' week for both our participants and for our volunteers.

The George G. Glenner Alzheimer's Family Centers also is the administrator for San Diego County's Guardian Angel Volunteer Program, which matches people with isolated seniors.
