Margaret, 86, has enjoyed going to the theatre ever since she was a young girl. Throughout her life it has been a constant passion and inspiration for her. When she attended college, she majored in Theatre and Speech, but later went into teaching. For the remainder of her career, she taught elementary-aged children in the “gifted program” (children with IQs of 125 or higher). She always put in extra time and effort to influence these childrens’ lives and found teaching to be her passion. The theatre was something she always looked forward to for all of these wonderful years.
Over the past four years Moore has lost her husband and learned that she is living with Alzheimer’s. Though she has struggled with these events, as well as being a newcomer to her Brookdale community, she strives to keep her memory sharp by remaining active in the community. She gets 3 special visitors quite often: her granddaughters Jessica, Rebecca, and Erika, who live locally. Margaret dotes on them and wanted nothing more than to see a theatre performance with them and create new memories.
Thanks to Brookdale Senior Living and Wish of a Lifetime, Moore’s wish came true. Moore and her three granddaughters attended “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” at the Kravis Center of Performing Arts in West Palm Beach. Margaret said that this was “the best day of my life,” because she was able to spend this time with her granddaughters.
