My Mom participates daily at the "breakfast club" in the Ronald Reagan Library, she attends all meal opportunities, watched the daily entertainment in the lobby (singing groups, dancing, etc.) and insists on going on the weekly bus trip out to the community. When I come visit her, she is often in the dining room or walking in the garden... sometimes watching a movie with others in the movie theater. She has always attended church, and on Sundays, Vista Gardens brings in a minister that gives a message. She loves it.
