Robin Arnett has been having bi-weekly Zoom visits with Marge, her Bessie's Hope "grand-friend" in Rosemark at Mayfair Park. It is a very special time for both women.    

This program is for individuals, families, couples, friends, who want to cultivate a life-changing relationship with an elder, who may have no other personal visitors.

For almost twenty years, Bessie's Hope has had partnered with Regis University and their healthcare students. Prior to Covid 19, Regis students participated in multiple visits at various elder care communities. Through our Staying Connected Initiative, Regis students and staff continued to support our elders in a whole new way!
