A short story………
Some time ago, I was compelled to move my 89 year old mother from her Huntington, Long Island home of some 50 years to assisted living here in New Jersey due to complications brought about by age, macular degeneration and the onset of mild dementia. It was shortly after that time that I began reading to my mother articles from the New York Times and other periodicals to fulfill her need for information, a sense of continued growth and intellectual stimulation. She had always an abiding interest in the wonder of new information, education and always moving forward with one’s life. To allow her these necessities, I chose to read or converse with her in public areas within the assisted living environs because she tended to isolate in her room with her two cats. It was soon thereafter that I noticed other senior residents were clustered around us listening, as they too had the same interest and desire for information, intellectual and emotional stimulation. It was at this point and after many occurrences of this nature that the proverbial light went off in my head. I decided to offer the same intellectual stimulation to a greater number of seniors, more than just my mother. My mother and her still robust desire for information stimulus was in fact the genesis for HRG and its Lifelong Learning and Town Hall Meeting program that we now offer to residents in independent and assisted living facilities.
