When my grandma was spending her last days in a nursing home, my family would of course try to make sure she was as happy, comfortable, and well looked after as possible.
Luckily, the facility she was inwas filled with such amazing staff members that we didn’t have to worry too much. It’s always tough to see a loved one nearing the end of their lives, and they too often go ignored when the reality becomes too painful for some.
That’s why its so essential forneighbors to offer support regardless of whether or not they happen to know someone in one of their town’s nursing homes and assisted living communities.
Of course the one thing that means the most to those folks:Getting the chance to spend time together.It’s one thing to donate a few of the items below, but it would make it evensweeter if they were able to make a new friend at the same time.
Take a look and let us know in the comments if we missed anyother simple things you know people in nursing homes could use more of.
And don’t forget to SHARE with your friends!
