“We Danced the Night Away”

Jenny Hogen joined the Life Enrichment/Wellness team at Touchmark at Harwood Groves in April 2022 and has been making significant impacts on the community since then. In August, she created a memory care date night and worked with Executive Chef Elijah Waller to prepare a menu for the evening. The menu included a starter garden salad, a Caprese chicken entree, and a cheesecake with a chocolate-dipped strawberry for dessert.   


When date night arrived, Jenny placed red roses on the tables and encouraged couples to gift each other the flowers. The spouse of one resident in memory care emailed afterward to share how much the evening together meant: “It was a beautiful night with excellent food, special music, and gorgeous flowers. It was truly memorable. Thanks to the team for their care in helping us recapture a bit of normalcy amidst each couple's journey. We enjoyed dancing the night away.”  


Thank you, Jenny, for helping make moments like this happen.
