During one of our days at Hebrew senior life, we visited memory support, which caters to the needs of patients with Alzheimer's/dementia. We created paper flowers with the residents and experienced working with a wide range of memory loss.

Our group has also met many incredible residents whom have shared their life stories with us.

We have explored the topics of aging, death, loss, and legacy. The elders have taught us that loss can be a very difficult experience, but it's reality and we have to look on the bright side, which is that the person has lived a long and plentiful life. Life should be celebrated, not mourned.

In conclusion, we've learned that retirement homes aren't necessarily depressing places to be. They are places where we can live out the rest of our lives and appreciate every moment.
