Tip of the day

Sometimes holidays can be bittersweet when we’ve lost loved ones.  If your father or grandfather is gone, you might consider visiting a nursing home today.  Ask the staff at the nurses station about a resident who doesn’t have many visitors.  Drop in with some flowers, a card, or just yourself.  I can’t tell you how often I hear from older adults how much they appreciate calls and visits, even from volunteers or people who would otherwise be strangers.
