residents recently had their rooms decorated with memories of professional achievements, childhood memories and even acts of heroism.
Residents of the assisted living facility suffer from Alzheimer's and various forms of dementia, so their families and volunteers gave rooms makeovers to help patients remember some of the most important moments of their lives.
Four of the best decorated rooms were recognized on Saturday, with donations of $250 being made on behalf of the winning families to the Walk to End Alzheimer's campaign.
One of the winning rooms belongs to Alzheimer's patient Robert Hoyt, an 86-year-old retired sound engineer. Hoyt won the Academy Award for Best Sound for his work on the 1975 horror classic Jaws.
His wife hung a large Jaws poster in his room to remind him everyday of one of his biggest accomplishments.
"He loves looking at it, he remembers that," Judie Hoyt said, adding: "One of his hobbies is watching Turner Classic Movies, he worked on a lot of those movies."
In Charlie Getzs' room, Silverado staff hung some plaques that honored his military service and other heroic acts. In 1986, Getz rescued senior citizens from a fiery bus crash.
