BROCKTON, MA – Residents at Heights Crossing found a unique way to give back to their local community, recently dropping off blankets and animal food to the Animal Protection Center of Southeastern Massachusetts. The initiative was organized by “Compass Cares”, a group of residents living at Heights’ Compass Memory Support Neighborhood® who work on various projects to help their greater community.
“It was great to see the pride and excitement on residents’ faces as they put this together,” says Reggie Whalen, Director of Compass Memory Support Programming at Heights Crossing. “The Compass Cares program has been instrumental in giving residents a sense of purpose and accomplishment. This group also loves animals, so it was the perfect project!”
The Compass Memory Support Neighborhood® is a secure part of Height Crossing that has been specifically designed for individuals with memory loss or Alzheimer’s disease. Affiliated with the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center, Compass puts cutting-edge research into action through lifelong learning, social engagement, physical fitness, the arts, and nutrition.
