"My residents loved having a guided art class and learned new skills that brought out their inner creativity. Sam and Ri[kki] did a great job and their class was perfect for all artistic levels"

“We were fortunate enough to have Sam and Rikki Fogelson do a painting project at our building. The painting my residents recreated was a beautiful sunset over the water, showing off Rikki’s artistic talents. My residents really enjoyed the morning with the two of them. Sam and Rikki were professional in their presentation. They were engaging and supportive of the artistic abilities of my residents. We would gladly have them back for another painting activity. They were a joy to be around.”

From an Activities Director standpoint we all know COVID has put a damper on several activities outside of the community such as outings limiting majority of activities being in-house.  However, Sam Fogelson and his family has played a tremendous role in our programing over the past two months offering a phenomenal opportunity to our residents through creative art.  Our residents enjoy arts/crafts activities but I must say Sam has taken it to the next level. I am highly impressed the patience they have shown working with our seniors and encouraging them to finish the artwork. It has surprised me how many more residents who never joins arts/crafts activities have opened up and participated during their session and have actually asked for them to return.  I would just like to send a huge thank you to the Fogelson family for doing such an amazing job. Hope to see you guys soon, the residents are looking forward to it.
