Oak Park Place, a senior community, will welcome 50 first-year law students for a Day of Service featuring intergenerational learning and activities on Thursday, Aug. 26 from 10:15 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
About a dozen of the students will go on an outing to Olbrich Gardens with residents from Oak Park Place’s assisted living community. Another group of students will be at Oak Park Place’s east side campus participating with residents in such activities as a current event discussion, recreational activities and helping with such household tasks as changing smoke detector batteries.
"At Oak Park Place we know it is important to our residents to remain connected to, and active in, the broader community and we provide many opportunities for them to do so," said Jasmine Rogness, regional director of marketing for Oak Park Place. "The Day of Service is a wonderful way to have a group of young people interact with our residents, learn from their experiences and it brings all the advantages of intergenerational activities right to our campus."
Oak Park Place serves seniors with a full continuum of care including skilled nursing, rehabilitative services, assisted living, Alzheimer’s and dementia care and independent living.
