For Elyse, it meant serving as her mom's caregiver. Read about Elyse’s #caregiver success story on the Teamcare Blog 👉#linkinbio .

Each month, our Jamaica ACS hosts a group of elementary school kids from PS 186's "Kindness Committee" whose goal is to bring joy and kindness to our seniors as part of our #intergenerational program. The kids bring treats and kind notes to our seniors. Recently, they worked together to create 2 Valentine's quilts--one for our center, and one for their school. Each person wrote what love means to them on a heart and they put it all together. Both our participants and the students look forward to spending time together during this awesome program every month💚

Teamcare #Amityville is featured in the cover story for the March 2019 issue of @50plusny 🎉 Through her upbeat and fun weekly exercise program, Dolores (DJ) Brown connects with and motivates our Amityville participants with her enthusiasm and positivity. ✨

Ms. Brown, a former runner up in the Ms. Senior NY pageant, puts it best herself: “These are men and women, some in their 80s and 90s, who have some issues, medical or otherwise, but they still want to enjoy life…I love to bring them joy, and make them feel good about themselves, and to celebrate life. Your body is alive, you’ve got to move it, you’ve got to use it!” 📰 Read all about it here: 👇https://issuu.com/primetimetrav…/docs/50__lifestyles_li_3-19
