With the first few weeks of school on the books, Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco residents and team members visited the first-graders at Polly Tadlock Elementary School and congratulated them on the successful start of the year. During the visit, they gave the children a small gift of appreciation to reward them for their dedication to school and education. The seniors met with the children in the school cafeteria and spent time sharing stories from their school days while listening to the children’s impressions of their first few weeks as first-graders. This is yet another example of the growing partnership between Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco and Polly Tadlock Elementary school.
“It is so encouraging for the students to see the support from the residents and team members of Mustang Creek Estates,” said Sarah Perry, counselor at Polly Tadlock Elementary. “Our students always enjoy visits from the senior living community, and they loved sharing stories with the seniors and talking about the first few weeks of school. We are very excited to continue our partnership this school year.”
This event demonstrated how the assisted living and memory care community always creates ways to keep the residents active by connecting residents with people of all ages. Intergenerational activities provide many benefits to the lives of seniors, including improving their physical and mental health. The children also value the connection with the older generation and truly benefit from the relationships with the seniors.
“Our residents love spending time with the children at Polly Tadlock Elementary,” said Beth Babcock, executive director at Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco. “Visiting the students is one of our favorite activities, and it warms our hearts to see the seniors and children interact. The generations can learn a lot from one another, and it is a privilege to work with the students on an ongoing basis.”
Mustang Creek Estates – whose mission is to provide seniors with high-quality residential-style assisted living and memory care at an affordable price – has additional locations in Allen, Burleson and Keller. Recently, Mustang Creek Estates opened its newest senior living community in Sachse.
