In AgeUp, Community

We proudly celebrated our EAGLE reaccreditation earlier this year. Emphasizing the value of EAGLE, EAGLE has helped us to reinforce the importance of community engagement. We are so incredibly fortunate for resident involvement in designing and implementing new and innovative programs. This true sense of community among residents also extends to our employees. Bayview’s most exciting example of community engagement is the relationship with our Intergenerational Children’s Center, which serves over 40 children. The young benefit from the wisdom and experience of elders, and elders experience the joy and wonder of youth.

Thank you to Mary Kemper, President and CEO of United Methodist Association, for visiting Bayview on Monday, June 24 (image above).  We look forward to our continuous partnership in the years to come.
