March is Social Worker's Month. Every Adult Day Health Services Center has a social worker working hard for our participants and caregivers. It is estimated that there will be a 34% growth rate in new social workers needed in the coming years as Baby Boomers move into their older years. (US Department of Labor, 2012)

The Tempe ADHS was hit with a "snowstorm" that ended with a beautiful rainbow that seemed to start over the Main Building and end over the Young Adult Building!  How lucky are we?!  :)

Throughout the month of February the Senior participants at Tempe ADHS made conversational hearts. Today, with a little help, we surprised the young adults at Tempe by "heart attacking" their program before they arrived. We left a path of hearts from the driveway through the front door, then we placed hearts all over the entrance, on walls, doors, tables, chairs, on bathroom mirrors, the TV, and in hidden places like inside the fridge. The Young Adults LOVED it! Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
