Vive la France!

December has arrived at the Hacienda at the River! The tail end of 2017 has come with cooler temperatures, holiday cheer and a virtual trip to Paris for our Assisted Living and Memory Care guests, family members and caregivers. As part of our award-winning Watermark University series,  Horticulture Guide and French speaker Jason Welborn presented a fun, educational program that generated enthusiasm, stories of past experiences and engaging dialogue among the thirty-plus audience members. The course included personal tales of living in the French capital, French expressions with English explanations and a video on the sights, sounds and culture that is uniquely Parisian. The excitement in the room was palpable and brought about memories of previous trips from our guests and a score of fresh ideas of where we ought to travel next – and the winner was Provence! We’ll be “traveling” to the fields of lavender and ancient vineyards in southern France in February, so stay tuned!
