We have been thoroughly enjoying our visits to the local nursing home. The girls loved passing out candy on Halloween and homemade cards for Thanksgiving. For our Christmas visit, the girls made these adorable candy cane ornaments to pass out along with the Legend of the Candy Candy poem.
We visited and sang Christmas Carols for many of the residents.
This was our third visit to this particular nursing home. Not only are our visits a valuable experience for the girls, but they brighten up the day for the elderly, who often feel isolated and excluded from the community. Our goal this year is to maintain an ongoing visitation program with this community of elders.
