HOLIDAY NOTE: We have obtained a large quantity of the award winning books for caregivers by Lyn and Bill Roche. Please contact us for a copy of either "Coping with Caring - When Someone You Love has Alzheimer's or a Related Condition" or "Sharing The Care When Someone you Love Resides in an Adult Care Facility". These books would be very helpful to you and others you meet in your ministry. We will send you a copy for a donation of any amount while our supply lasts. Here is some info about the books.
Christmas is a time of giving and showing God's love to others. What a better time to focus on our needy friends in the nursing home environment. At this time of year they are experiencing both loneliness and depression. We have a Special Christmas Page that will help you in planning your visits around the Christmas period. On this page we have compiled many suggestions, resources, and links.
While it is true that many groups and entertainers make the rounds during the holidays, it is the simple things from people, who see them regularly and care for them individually, that mean the most to the residents. For many, we are the only family they have. Won't you consider to bring each one a small gift and a card, give them a hug or a kiss, and tell them that Jesus loves them and so do you!
You may want to printout the Christmas Card we are giving to the residents along with a small gift.
We have used the "Is Someone Smiling?" Devotional in our scheduled visits to the nursing home. We would like to challenge you to try printing out extra copies of this inspiring message and giving them to those people you meet in your everyday travels between now and New Years. We have seen some amazing things happen when we did!
