I gave a party to my oldsters

Friday, December 28, 2012

I have not been to see the nursing home residents for a while.They email me now and again but,Its been hard to find time with holiday guests,cooking,cleaning,entert
aining and running around like im dazed.I walked in the door and saw many faces brighten up!I was suddenly bombarded by questions,hugs,laughter and kisses.My husband helped me bring in about 65 gifts,punch,ice cream,cake and music to dance to.Trust me when I say it felt so good to see them laughing without cares and dancing until they had to go nap.They sang,played games and DH was the DJ!He actually stayed and helped me.The nurses didnt need to tell me what a great man he is!!Hours later when we packed up everyone cheered and clapped for us.We were happy and exhausted.The nurses gifted me with an ipod and a gift card to shoe carnival for $100!Wow!! emoticonSUSAN

    Those people wait for some good times at the nursing homes. They seem to really love you, you make their day when you come. How nice to get gifts from the nursing home, but then you give your time to brighten some older peoples day.

That's must have been a fun party !! Sounds like everyone had a great time. I really should volunteer at my local elder care facility. I'll bet it really can be fulfilling.
