Our clients enjoy the piano playing of Donna Anderson when she visits monthly!

Donna Anderson plays the piano and we usually listen but now we sing along. Our participants have become so comfortable with Donna’s monthly visits they croon right along to her tunes. From holiday favorites to hits of their past there is singing, clapping and memories. It is amazing to hear the lyrics come from participants who usually show so little awareness. And then come the smiles as they realize they remember.

Donna, who is a member of Trinity Lutheran Church, heard about The Perfect Place from another volunteer. She enjoys playing for us because we are so appreciative and, of course, there are the tea and cookies where we have time to find out what goes on in her life and share stories with her. And yes, Roy is already warming up for the singing he will do for Valentine’s Day.

The Perfect Place is located on the campus of Risen Savior Lutheran Church in Sun Lakes. We are a non-profit faith based adult care center. Our volunteers are knowledgeable of Alzheimer’s, dementia, developmental disabilities and various adult neurological challenges. Most of us have had a loved one for which we were a caregiver. We enjoy what we do.
