You Are Never Too Old To Be Happy. Celebrate National "I Want You To Be Happy Day!"

Tuesday, February 23 2016 11:47 AM

National I Want You To Be Happy Day WallWICHITA, KS—Larksfield Place Retirement Communities and the Alzheimer’s Association for Central and Western Kansas are joining forces to identify ways that people with Alzheimer’s and related dementia(s) can find life’s unique states of bliss, regardless of their current challenges.  We want them to enjoy life “in the moment” and be “more present.” There is no better day to celebrate than national “I Want You to Be Happy Day.”

“When we learn from our Alzheimer’s residents what makes them happy, we can create those opportunities for them.  One person might enjoy a ride in a sports car, while another might be happiest playing with puppies or listening to music,” says Gretchen Wagner, Director of Larksfield Place Assisted Living & Memory Support.

Celebrate the universal pleasure of bliss!  Write in the event or activity that makes you happiest on the traveling wall and in turn, let us share the happiness with others challenged with dementia…at Larksfield Place you are never too old to be happy

The traveling wall will first appear Thursday, March 3, 2016, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m., Larksfield Place Assisted Living & Memory Support Community lobby at 2727 N Rock Road, Wichita, Kansas, 67226.  Refreshments will be served.

Anyone, anywhere can participate. Let us know what makes you happy on the virtual wall at
