Dementia families gifted Spring holiday care packages by LIAD Center

Staff Hand Deliver Holiday-Themed Packages

To celebrate the new Spring season, LIAD Center staff hand delivered holiday-themed packages to a few of our families! Each package was filled with goodies, games and more.


First they spread some Irish luck for St. Patrick's Day in March. Packages included green hand sanitizers, light up shamrock necklaces, coloring supplies, socks and other accessories. Later in April, in honor of Easter and Passover, and thanks to special support from Care Connections Home Care, staff delivered themed gifts with Easter egg stress balls, matzo, swirly themed straws, and a variety of candies.


Thank you to all the families that participated, and happy Spring to all!
