The Trudeau Center celebrated Becky, Paul and Kevin’s birthdays with our specialty – a fun car parade! Wednesday, July 15 was a gorgeous Rhode Island day and the Trudeau team spent it spreading birthday wishes to three of our group home residents.
Happy birthday to this lovely and lively trio.
The Trudeau Center has eight group homes that operate 24 hours a day, every day.
Each home is filled with amazing residents and compassionate Trudeau professionals who care for them.
A typical day is filled with activities, routines, daily care and FUN. Here’s a snapshot of recent activities at two of our group homes.
Happy birthday, David!
