"WE WERE BLOWN AWAY. Mom always loved to perform. When Mom was in her 70s she was a part of a group called the 'Dancing Grannies'. She had so much fun traveling around the city performing with her friends. Due to Mom's dementia she was unable to get out anymore and became very lonely. After moving into Bickford, the Life Enrichment Coordinator arranged to have the 'Dancing Grannies' perform. I don't know which was more fun - watching the performance or Mom's reaction."
