Puzzles to Remember
"Stay For a Little While" is a song written by David Light and Bakhus Saba.
It is about how mutually beneficial it is to have children visit those with dementia.
The video stars PuzzlesToRemember's Assistant Director, Haily Richman.
Great job, Hailey, you are an inspiration to many!
