Bridges by EPOCH at Nashua resident and Interact Rotary Club student exchange glances through the window.

Residents at Bridges by EPOCH at Nashua in Nashua, NH, received a surprise visit just in time for Valentine’s Day. 

Feb. 10, the Southegan Valley Interact Rotary Club, a community-based club for students residing in the greater Nashua area, stopped by the memory care assisted living community to quite literally paint a picture of what they envision Valentine’s Day to look like.

Students, as well as their parents, clustered together to paint the dining room windows with Valentine’s Day-themed images. Because the event took place around dinner time, residents were able to enjoy watching the group draw as they ate.

“This event is one way for us to continue bringing intergenerational opportunities to our residents’ daily lives in a fun, safe way,” said Sherene Abu-Hijleh, life enrichment director at Bridges by EPOCH at Nashua. 

While the students and their parents painted, residents were able to safely interact with them through the glass. When every neighborhood’s painting was finished, the residents waved and clapped to show their gratitude.
