On Jan. 14, 2019, residents at The Highlands in Fitchburg, Massachusetts, and their families enjoyed a disco party.
David Currier, director of dementia education and program development for Life Care Centers of America’s Northeast Division, presented the program, which included sounds of the 1970s. He was a fitting disc jockey, having been a former drummer for the band Boston.
Many residents and associates danced to the music and enjoyed refreshments.
“It’s always a good time at The Highlands,” said one of the residents.
“My mom was so excited about the disco party,” said Janice Bellisle, daughter of a resident. “I am so happy to see her look forward to upcoming events and programs.”
Associates also dressed up in ’70s attire, including Lajja Lantigua, activity director, and Carlos Bonilla, executive director.
“Many residents came down for the program and were so engaged in the music,” said Lantigua. “It was a fun-filled day for them.”
