Sometimes it's just nice to know that people are thinking about you. Maybe I'm just a foodie, but when I think about communicating that to someone who is going through a hard time or someone who's just been on my mind, I like to bake something or take them a treat.
I think our Country View tenants enjoy seeing that others are thinking about them too. They really enjoy when community volunteers bring in special, homemade goodies for their surprise desserts. It communicates that they are not alone and that they are being thought of, which is a powerful message to convey to the elderly.
Thank you for making a difference in the lives of our older generation.
