Building Community by Understanding the Past
At The Reutlinger Community forJewish Living , Danville , Calif ,the Neighbor of the Month program was developed to celebrate resi-dents lives and promote family involvement . Througs the program ,families have shared the love and memories they have their loved ones with other residents and staff.
Each month a resident is selected through discussion with the activity dierctor , who then meets with the resident and family to draft a biography A poster board is created with the biography and a series photos of the resident from childhood through adult life . The poster asks ”Guess who” to challenge staff, pther residents and famillies to identify the person from his or her history and earlier photos . Everyone enjoys the challenge.
An afternoon social is held where family members come in and present the resident and share many details that we otherwise would not have known . It is a heartwarming experience to be a part of the audience and listen to the storen of our residents befoer they came to us . The family feels a connection and all residents share in one another’s lives . It gives everyone a fuller sense of who each resident is . Everyone looks forward to the next mystery resident.
We began this program in2009 and have featured 26 resident already . Through this program, residents feel closer to each other , and the process promotes self -esteem , friendship and pride.
