As Seen in The Sun: Community focus provides hope for residents at StoneRidge
The sense of community also played a role in the facility’s success, staff said. In fact it was the residents who would often organize volunteer efforts for their peers as a means of keeping busy and providing hope.
Over the past four years, resident Rita Jolly and her Patriot quilters had established a community group to produce quilts which were given to veterans as a special Veterans Day thank you for their service. Rather than let the program fade, Jolly and seven others used the stay-at-home orders as an opportunity to advance the cause.
