The Senior Citizens of Mapleton gathered recently at the The Abbington Assisted Living & Memory Care Community facility for a tour of the building and a luncheon provided by the Abbington. Many hours of work and several fundraisers resulted in the seniors being able to secure funds to buy iPads and extra equipment for the Alzheimer’s patients at the Abbington. The purpose of the iPads was for music downloaded for the patients to listen to. This program began at the University of Utah and has been utilized in many facilities to help patients be alert and responsive. It was the culmination of a dream come true for the seniors that have worked so hard to bring this to pass.
