Last week, FL ALFA visited with staff from Elmcroft of Timberlin Parc in Jacksonville. Janice Ryalls, Executive Director, shared a special program at the community each month that brings a resident’s interests or dreams to real life. This month’s resident surprise was building a caladium garden for a resident who enjoys gardening. The local Home Depot donated the pots, plants, and watering barrel for the project. Now, the residents and community can enjoy the garden.
Last month, a resident who had written her memoirs, had them published and the community held a big party for her. Another surprise included a resident trip to the Holyland in Orlando and a trip to a farm to feed horses, chickens and other animals.
