River House Clients Delighted with Holiday Tree from Greenwich Girl Scouts

River House recently delighted their clients with a holiday tree decorated by Greenwich Girl Scouts.

The tree was adorned with handmade ornaments made by Girl Scouts who ranged from first to twelfth grades.

To ensure the safety of clients and staff the tree was delivered to River House’s front door and accepted by Anne Murdock, River House’s Development Director.

River House and Greenwich Girl Scouts have long collaborated, with Girl Scouts eager to support the community’s elders through their service projects. This year, the two organizations found a socially-distanced way to express their heartfelt connection.

River House’s mission is to provide adult day care that works for all families. Adults who wish to remain in their community but require daytime assistance come to River House up to six days a week to participate in vibrant activities, socialize with their peers, and receive compassionate care. Individuals challenged with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, arthritis, diabetes, stroke, depression, traumatic brain injury, cardiac or pulmonary disease, vision/hearing loss, or other age-related ailments, greatly benefit from River House’s team of nurses, health aides, and therapeutic recreation staff who are trained to support their unique needs.

River House was founded in 1977 and remains committed to providing the highest quality care to aging adults in Greenwich, Stamford, and the surrounding areas while offering guidance and support to their caregivers.
