“I’M really busy. I don’t think I’ll come to today’s activity,” says a resident at Springbrooke Retirement and Assisted Living Community.
“Just come for a few minutes,” responds Cheryl Baldwin, activities director.

Several weeks later, the resident will thank Baldwin for pushing her to take part in the activity and meet new friends.
This conversation is common at Springbrooke as Baldwin ensures that there is an activity that will brighten every resident’s day. Activities are not cookie cutter and mundane. Variety is the name of the game.
