Generations Collaborate for Easter Fun

The Alzheimer’s Respite Program and St. Catherine’s Preschool collaborated to provide Easter fun for both the respite clients and the preschool students. Bringing different generations together to share experiences, knowledge and skills is so important, and this was intergenerational programming at its finest!

Respite center staff members Edna Esposito and Linda Valenziano came up with the idea of collaborating with St. Catherine’s Preschool to provide students with Easter fun. They contacted Preschool Director Kelly Pola to see if they would be interested in participating in the event. Without hesitation Pola agreed, and the respite program started planning. Respite clients made Easter bags for each child, filled Easter eggs with goodies, and then went down to the park to hide all the eggs in preparation for an Easter egg hunt.

On the day of the event, the respite clients waited for the preschool kids at the park. The kids arrived, and the respite clients helped them on their hunt to find the all the eggs. The Easter bunny made an appearance (thanks to the Martinez Recreation Department), and a fun day was had by all!
