I'm in for this!

My mom has been in a skilled nursing facility for almost 2 years now. It's a big campus and has assisted, independent and memory care living also. My daddy goes almost every day to see her - some days are better than others regarding her alertness. She's never recovered well from breaking her hip in September 2017. She's not ambulatory and we are starting to see some cognitive issues arise. My twin sister and I go on the weekends and I also take my DS pretty regularly.


There are many folks in her building who get no visitors or cards which is heartbreaking to see. Twin and I walk around and chat with folks and we always bring flowers and holiday decorations to whomever is Mom's roommate at the time. One roommate she had for awhile is now in a different room but we still visit her and it means the world to her since her family isn't nearby.

What a wonderful cause to help with!
