Several Meridian Senior Living communities are participating in the 10th annual #CupidCrew movement this Valentine’s Day. As one of the many initiatives our residents participate in, #CupidCrew aims to spread love and joy to seniors in communities at risk for isolation across the country. As research shows that social isolation among seniors is linked to an increased risk of dementia, heart disease, and stroke, creating connections is key to supporting their health. And this community service is more important now than ever, as many older adults have become disconnected from loved ones due to the global pandemic.
Our communities are participating in a variety of activities and events to spread love and joy to residents, staff, and the local community. From heart-filled decor to special treats and gifts, the #CupidCrew movement brings a smile to everyone’s face.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of this nationwide movement,” said Kevin Carlin, Principal and Chief Sales and Culture Officer at Meridian Senior Living. “It’s an opportunity for us to connect with seniors in our communities, spread love and joy, and show them how much we care.”
Residents in communities like Worthington Manor in Conroe and Atrium at Liberty Park are designing beautiful handmade cards with heartfelt messages that will be distributed to seniors nationwide. Community service projects like these are essential to regaining a sense of purpose among seniors that can generate energy, and motivation to accomplish other projects.
