San Carlos Elms Participates in Week of the Family

This is Week of the Family celebrating 16-years of community service throughout San Carlos. At San Carlos Elms we opened our doors to three schools in San Carlos. Students along with Residents accomplished making sandwiches for Street Life Church, Valentines Day cards for our Veterans at the VA in Palo Alto, ipad lessons with our Residents done with the students, while other students played scrabble with our Residents and others went to our Memory Care Program to read with our Residents there.
Mabel & Shirley were happy to make sandwiches for a good cause.

We had a great turn out this year!

Don played scrabble with one of the students.

Jennifer was referee for the Centenarian Scrabble Battle between Lorraine and Jay
(both over 100 years old).

Former mayor of San Carlos, Don Eaton, played scrabble with Jean and lost - respectfully.

Here are just some of the Residents and Volunteers working hard on the Valentine Day cards.

The Valentine Day Cards came out beautifully.

Norine enjoyed having a story read to her.

Lida enjoyed it too.

Arts & Crafts

 The San Carlos Library came in with a fun painting project for our residents.
