Noel Mitchell walked to the middle of the bright, white entertainment room at Casa Otoñal, sucked in a deep breath, and prepared to make an announcement.

It was another quiet evening, the room filled with about 20 of the center’s elderly inhabitants, speaking quietly to each other in Spanish. A number of pink and red hearts, mounted just in time for Valentine’s Day, glinted as they twirled and bounced from the ceiling.
“Zelda,” Mitchell explained before he began the theme-song-cum-duet with Music Haven director Tina Lee Hadari, “is a very, very, very old video game.”
