Every year, Apostolic Homes in the area get together for a social. Many of the residents look forward to this for weeks, because they have friends and relatives living in the those Homes.
Last year, we at the Roanoke Home hosted the social. We had the opportunity of providing table topics and unique conversation starters to help the residents connect.
This year, Morton A.C. Home is hosting the group of homes in their church's fellowship hall. In preparation, we are to provide a short historical piece about our hometown. The goal is to bring back memories and initiate conversations.
The event is always well-attended and lots of fun for staff and residents alike. We enjoy a sumptuous meal and entertainment and get to see people who haven't seen each other in years reconnect and deepen their friendship.
