Creating beautiful jewelry has never been easier at Piedmont Senior Resources Area Agency on Aging’s (PSRAAA) Friendship Cafes.
This week, March 5-9, at each of PSRAAA’s eight café sites, seniors are making bracelets, necklaces and other forms of jewelry out of beads.
“This activity stimulates our seniors’ minds and hands,” said PSRAAA Director of Nutrition and Transportation Jordan Miles, “enabling them to keep their motor skills sharp so they can not only be creative, but apply these same skills to their daily routines in and outside of their homes.”
Site coordinators --- paid, professional PSRAAA staff --- guide and aide the seniors as they create their unique bracelets and in their other planned activities.
Friendship cafes are located in Buckingham, Amelia, Cumberland, Charlotte, Lunenburg, Nottoway and Prince Edward counties. Locations can be found online at www.psraaa.org.
“Also this month we will have Allison Crews of natural pHuel discuss the topic of ‘Feeding ourselves through spirit, mind and body’ with our seniors,” Miles said.
