Jayne truly loves working with Martha as they plan enrichment activities that not only engage and entertain but also respect the uniqueness of each resident.

Sparking joy and sharing life, these activities bring meaning to each new day. One-on-one and group activities are vital to making residents feel at home at Angels.”
