St. John’s residents on the Beyond Memory floor form a new club: The Purple Hat Society. The club started as a way to beat the “COVID-19 blues,” and to encourage residents living with dementia to gather safely, socialize and partake in activities. The group meets once a month and decorated their own hats they wear around the St. John’s campus.
