ONEgeneration was recently selected for a $1,000 grant from Wells Fargo as part of their Community Connections Giving program.  This generous gift was combined with a matching gift from an anonymous donor and the combined funds were applied to two new ADC programs –“Music and Memory” and “Person Centered Care.”

We have seen many of our seniors respond joyfully to our current music programs. Here is a quote from the Music & Memory website: “We train elder care professionals, how to create and provide personalized playlists using iPods and related digital audio systems that enable those struggling with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other cognitive and physical challenges to reconnect with the world through music-triggered memories.”  ONEgeneration is thrilled that our staff will be trained and our facility will become” “Music & Memory” certified.

The remaining funds will be used for at least one new table to support programming that fits a “Person Centered Care” model which promotes choice, purpose and meaning. It focuses on clients being supported in achieving a level of physical, mental and psychosocial well-being that is individual and all towards the goal of keeping seniors healthy, engaged and happy. The program is highly endorsed by the California Association of Adult Day Centers.

We would like to thank Wells Fargo and our anonymous donor for their generous gifts to ONEgeneration.  The funds will bring about many smiles and enable seniors to age in place longer.  Together, we share the care.
