Nursing Home Service Project

For the 2009-2010 School Year our teen group had a local Nursing Home as it's service project.  Every month we made crafts ahead of time, and brought them with us on our monthly visit.

Here we are singing Christmas Carols...strolling the halls and bringing joy to the residents.

If you've never visited a local nursing home, I so encourage you to do so. I have to admit, my first 5 minutes I was very uncomfortable too, but then I started really talking to each one and showing the teens how to do it. Simple touches on the shoulder, holding hands, looking at them and speaking with them about their many of them don't get visits very often and this was a true blessing to them.  They LOVED the children...especially Sebastian.  He'd go around and shake people's hands, high-five them etc.

If you are looking for a meaningful way to help, please look up local nursing homes and see if you can schedule a visit.  If you're here in Las Vegas, this happens to be El Jen  nursing home, and it is so wonderful!
