Residents at Cornerstone recently had a chance to co-mingle with students from Texas High School. The group of teens visited the elders living in the community’s Memory Support neighborhood and also participated in a learning circle with the community’s Independent Living group. The group discussed things like social media and football. Lisa Westerman, Life Enrichment Director, explained, “Connecting the younger generation to the elder generation is so important, so each can learn from one anther. That’s why visits like this mean so much.”
Cornerstone has also taken on a local Work Study Program that connects autistic students like Kristen Easley, to partners like Cornerstone to give them workforce experiences and skills. Westerman shared, “Kristen has brought so much joy to our staff as well as our residents who love watching her grow and come out of her shell.
