Arts and Crafts Holiday Fun at Two Palms Nursing Center

On a bright and slightly chilly Monday, several members of the A-1 Home Care/ A-1 Domestic Professional Services corporate family took a trip to the Twin Palms Nursing Center to have a ball doing holiday crafts and making a general glittery mess with the senior residents there. It was amazing fun!

We met a lot of brand new friends:

There were lots of talented artists in our midst. Glitter glue isn't the most forgiving of mediums, but everyone managed beautifully.

Thanks to everyone who helped us have an amazing holiday fun time at two Palms! We loved spending time with you, and hope to see you again soon!
