Recognizing that quality of life is elusive but critical to health and well-being, Crystal Littlejohn began experimenting with enrichment activities for the clients in her care management business, Geriatric Resources, LLC.
It was quite a process, with many speed bumps along the way. But she found the response from clients and families so overwhelmingly positive and the eventual benefits to her business so great, that she decided to create a system so colleagues around the country could quickly establish their own program and be spared the risk and expense of starting from scratch.
