Spring has arrived 
at the 
Center for Artful Living!
   We hope to stay connected with all of our participants, friends and volunteers through the Constant Contact newsletters.
   The Foundation realizes there are many challenges on a typical day for each of our participants and especially for the care partners. We strive to help support you with our various programs and services and are always stressing the importance of living well with dementia. With the impact of COVID-19, these daily challenges are even greater and more stressful.
   To keep everyone involved and relieve some of the anxiety and stress, we will be offering each of you the opportunity to participate in online Virtual Arts Enrichment sessions. We will begin with a music program tomorrow, Tuesday, March 31st at 2pm. If you have participated in a program at the Center for Artful Living during the last year, you will receive an email message inviting you to join us for a Zoom Conference call. This can be accessed through your computer, iPad, or Smart Phone. There will be directions in the email to join the call. At 2pm, click this link and it will take you to Zoom and then will prompt you to turn your video on. If you would like to participate, please contact us at: info@farrellfoundation.com
   Hopefully you will consider participating in the program and in future programs so we can reconnect, stay in touch, and enjoy our time together. Best to all!
Important Message from the Farrell Foundation
