When Webster Square Day Care Center learned two years ago it needed to find a new location, a partnership with the nearby St. Mary Health Care Center presented a happy option. This summer, the day care relocated to newly developed space at the Worcester, Mass., eldercare facility. The organizations, both of which are Catholic, have developed programs so kids and elders can mingle and play on a regular basis. At left, with a pencil pillow on her lap and a fox puppet on her hand, St. Mary resident Vicky Kirby charms a young friend. Below, St. Mary resident Jeannette Sienkiewicz reads You Are Important
to an appreciative listener.
