CAN’T MAKE IT TO ONE OF THE VISITS TO GRACE HEALTHCARE? NO PROBLEM! YOU CAN STILL GIVE BACK!
You might notice some paper “Angels” on the CFC Christmas Tree. Grab one, purchase the item on the back of the angel, wrap it pretty, and place it back under the tree – WITH the angel’s name on it. We will be sure they receive your gift!! You might notice the items listed on the angels are needs. If you would like to do more contact Chris Pfeiffer and she can give you some information on what your particular Angel might like/need. THANKS SO MUCH for your participation!
COMBAT LONELINESS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON at Grace Healthcare.
This holiday season we want take an opportunity to give back to some that need it most. So often when people age it becomes difficult for their loved ones to provide the constant care they need, and they end up having to place them in a nursing home. Unfortunately, even though this is sometimes the best thing to do for their loved one’s well being, it removes them from the comfort that they have known their whole lives. In a home they may spend their days sitting in the hallways watching people come in and out of the building hoping for some sort of genuine human contact. The nursing staff does the best that they can to spend time with the residents during the day, but the responsibility to focus on medical care for each resident sometimes leaves them little time to fulfill the resident’s need for basic human contact and interaction. This one on one interaction makes them feel valued and loved when they need it most.
In an attempt to lessen some of the loneliness felt by our local elderly population, we have set up some dates (December 18,19, 20 – specific times on sign up sheet on the black cabinets) that CFC Family members can do exactly that for the residents at Grace Healthcare. There will be activities provided on each day that you can assist with while visiting with the residents this holiday season. Grab a handful of your friends and make the trip! You won’t regret it! KIDS WELCOME!
I know that many of us are transplants here in Tennessee and know what it is like to not have family near when you need it most. So this year please, let’s be thankful for what we have and take some time out of our busy schedule to spread some joy to the resident’s at Grace Healthcare of Clarksville.
