Lauren and I spent a full day yesterday in a mediation trying to resolve an injury claim. The mediation took place at the nursing home where our client has lived for the last 14 months.
The mediation was unsuccessful (we go to trial in less than 2 months) but Lauren and I witnessed an interesting day at the nursing home.
The staff and residents were getting ready for their Christmas party. Decorations went up, Santa hats were everywhere, special food and drinks were prepared. A piano was rolled into the dining room and Christmas carolers were reviewing their song lists.
Most importantly, there was a smile on all of the residents’ faces…even a little spring in their step. Families and friends were also in attendance and you could tell their presence warmed the hearts of all who now call the nursing home their “Home.”
If you have a loved one or friend in a nursing home, take time out of your busy day to pay them a visit during the Holidays. It will certainly brighten their day.
