Story 19

The days that craft projects are planned in the activity room are favorite times for this care center resident. When her children were young she designed and sewed most of their clothing. After the children left home she was able to spend time painting and pursuing other craft activities. Today, besides craft sessions, her favorite pursuits are exercise, bingo, watching television and having her nails painted. As a favorite childhood memory she said, “I was the youngest, and before we went to sleep we would sing Christian songs and say prayers”. The Christmas gifts for this lady are slippers, diabetic socks, hygiene products, lightly salted mixed nuts, diet Pepsi and Ritz thins.
