Valentine’s Day at Canfield Place

Valentine's Day at Canfield Place

The fun never ends at Canfield Place! We believe that special events, like Valentine’s Day, deserve to be celebrated with friends and residents. This year, our residents enjoyed making Valentine’s Day cards and crafts with a local Girl Scout Troupe followed by an evening of champagne and chocolate tasting. Learn more about how Canfield Place residents celebrated the spirit of love this Valentine’s Day!

Girl Scouts and Canfield Place resident making Valentine's Day craftAt Canfield Place, we frequently host intergenerational activities, bringing together people across generations to work together, share stories, and enjoy each other’s presence. On February 12, Canfield Place residents were joined by a local Girl Scout troupe to make Valentine’s Day cards and crafts. Each resident was paired up with a Girl Scout and they spent the afternoon together crafting and laughing as they decorated door hangers, cards, and signs for loved ones. Everyone had a lot of fun and was proud to show off their creativity! Hugs were exchanged as the even ended and our residents were left with lasting, fun memories.

“They’re so crafty with such inventive ideas. I loved having them here to help me make something special for the occasion!” – Resident Ruth H.

“It brought such a smile to my face, seeing the young girls enjoying themselves with us. I am new to Canfield and just loved joining in on this activity.” Resident Laura D.

Following the craft, over 30 of our residents gathered in the Great Room for a champagne and chocolate tasting hosted by our program supervisor, Susan Christopher. Residents sampled three different champagnes with three different chocolates. While they sampled, Susan spoke about the background of each champagne and chocolate. Residents wrote down their notes on tastes and flavors from each one.

It was a fun and interactive program, and a great way to celebrate the day of love – indulging in delicious champagne and decadent chocolates!

We love to celebrate the holidays with our residents! By providing novelty programs that are engaging and joyful, our residents make new holiday memories while also having the opportunity to reflect on their special holiday memories. We’d love for you to join us for our next event! Stop by or contact us today. We’d love to see you!
