Everybody loves a parade! That’s why Anthem Memory Care communities organized some very special ones in honor of Mother’s Day. Working with families and friends of residents and staff, everyone got into the spirit, decorating their cars with signs and balloons. As soon as the residents took their places right outside the front doors the festivities began as cars slowly wound their way around the main driveway so that all the residents could see their loved ones.
Signs emblazoned with “Happy Mother’s Day” and “We love you!” festooned the car procession as grandchildren and great grandchildren popped their heads out of windows and drivers honked their horns and waved.
The video below, filmed by Jennifer Dill, Life Engagement Director at Chelsea Place Memory Care in Aurora, Colorado perfectly captures the festivities:
And another great video from Porter Place Memory Care in Tinley Park, Illinois:
And we’d also like to share some great photos of parade participants and residents enjoying the special day at Anthem Memory Care communities:
This Mother’s Day was unlike any other, to be sure. But that didn’t stop us from celebrating! We are so grateful to the wonderful families, friends and staff of our communities for rising to the occasion with such a special tribute to all the wonderful moms we are honored to “protect, engage and love” every day in our communities. Thank you for making this a very special Mother’s Day!
