Older adults in assisted living facilities and nursing homes are finding the joy of playing Boccia.  It is fun, competitive and builds  camaraderie .  We are building a net work of sites in the Kansas City area to compete with each other.  I would love to share with you about Boccia!

Athletes use a grid (like "Battleship"  that has the same dimensions of the Boccia court to feel where they should play the ball next.   Eye Shades can level the playing field so all can play!
