April 05, 2017 | News | Reading Time 1:00 Minutes

This past weekend, residents of The Brielle’s Memory Care community took part in a new pilot program, where art and nature came together under one roof!

Residents participated as a new wall mural was created of Snug Harbor Botanical Garden, a beautiful Staten Island landmark. The mural project is part of the Valeo Program, a proprietary wellness philosophy of Solvere Living, The Brielle’s management firm. Latin for to thrive, Valeo focuses specifically on wellness initiatives for those with memory impairments and incorporates components that examine residents’ social, intellectual, spiritual and physical well-being. Create and Compose is one of the major tenets of Valeo and capitalizes on the therapeutic benefits that art and music offer.

As you can see below, the words “Valeo Neighborhood” are included in the final piece. Take a look at their progress, additional photos from SI Live and a segment from local station, Spectrum News.
