Cares And Cheers!

I hope you are well and having a wonderful week! This year has really started off very busy--a very good thing for me. Keeps me out of trouble! : ). I wanted to share my latest project.
My husband's aunt has dementia and is in a nearby nursing facility. We have not been able to see her in-person due to COVID visitor restrictions. I thought maybe a care package would be a nice way to brighten her day. As I was coming up with ideas for the package, I thought why not do something special for all the residents and staff.
Hand-written cards for residents (16 women/2 men--girl power!) tucked in handled organizer baskets containing recommended items such as stuffed animals, lotion, chapstick, toothbrushes/toothpaste, sandwich cookies packs, and a little silk Gerber daisy flower arrangement (an extra little box of chocolates just for "my girl"---she is family after all and LOVES her chocolates!)--the two men (bless their hearts, got an additional shaving gel/after shave). Hand-written notes to each of the 32 staff with plans for individual treat bags and pizzas delivered for the group.
It feels so good to provide a little cheer to this little community!
