New Raised Garden Beds

October 8, 2019 – A special thank you to the amazing Marsh & McLennan Agency volunteers for building two new raised garden beds for our participants to use for program activities. Gardening promotes total wellness and that is what RIO supports!



New Sit-to-Stand Lift

Thank you so much to Ms. Lorraine Aldis and Mr. Larry Koenig for generously gifting our new “Sit to Stand Lift,” donated in memory of Richard Aldis, a long-time participant of our CBAS program. During the recognition ceremony, one of our CBAS participants demonstrated the device, which helps increase leg extension and assists with wheelchair transfers, improves posture, and provides another option for a more independent restroom experience. This device is incredibly beneficial to so many of our participants. Thank you again, Ms. Aldis and Mr. Koenig, for your generous support!

February Activities in CBAS

It’s been a fun and busy month in our Orange CBAS program! While our participants engage in numerous activities every day, this month they’ve also enjoyed Spirit Week and Valentines Day parties! During Spirit Week, each day represented a different theme, with corresponding activities, art projects, cooking demonstrations, and more. The staff and participants also loved dressing up in themed attire! During the Valentines Day parties, our Young Adults enjoyed Karaoke and live dance performances, while our Seniors enjoyed playing different instruments and dancing, among other activities.
In addition to all the activities, we’re very excited to announce the opening of our new CBAS sensory-based program room, located at our Orange campus! Interested in a tour? Please contact Robert at 714-633-7400, ext. 230.
