Elizabeth Barrett Browning wrote about it, we’re told that it’s what makes the world go round, it’s the meaning behind the name of the city of Philadelphia, and it’s found in our Lady-Links slogan. What is “it?” Of course everyone knows, the answer is love.
The Lady-Links celebrate friendship in a special way each year with a Valentine’s Party. During the party we involve our dear friends with dementia in making valentines to give to others in our community. This has been our tradition for years and there are benefits for everyone. Our dear friends feel that they are able to still contribute to the happiness of others and those who receive our valentines truly appreciate that someone remembered them on such a special day.
Lady-Links express friendship love at each of our visits by treating our dear friends who have dementia with value and endearment. Lady-Links personify the biblical commandment to “Love your neighbor as yourself” as we link love, laughter and life throughout our interactions with our dear friends and their families. For us, Valentine’s Day is year-round but we are delighted to celebrate it in a special way each February.
Enjoy pictures from our Valentine Party showing how the Lady-Links share a special bond of friendship love.
And for the dear friends who couldn’t make it to the party, we delivered their valentines to them.
With Lady-Links, there’s plenty of love to last a lifetime!
