Before the pandemic, we worked with seniors living in Memory Care Communities. Now we want to help the families who are alone in taking care of their loved ones and simply doing this from their heart. We understand how difficult this must be and want to share with you what we’ve learned working with the seniors we love.
Patty Sherin is a lover of the brick. Patty shares her love of Duplo LEGOⓇ bricks and pieces with seniors and their care partners to practice mindful acceptance, embrace self-care, release expectations and develop good support systems.

Founder, Vast Impact
Patty offers a wonderful opportunity for everyone, young and old, to be creative and have fun. We have had her visit our senior community and work with our residents on numerous occasions. We all really enjoy every time we get together and look forward to all the possibilities we can imagine creating with LEGOs.

I’ve read the early copy of this book. It is the book I wish would have been around when my mother was caring for my grandmother. Packed with information, caring, and practical advice.
