Whle I am on vacation, I made 42 Birthday Cards for my Assisted Living Friends living in the Belle Meade Retirement Community in Southern Pines, NC.
My Mother has been living in the Belle Meade Retirement Community since July of 1999. She started out in the Independent Living in a Cottage. As her health declined, she moved into the Coventry building on December 10, 2009. Coventry is an upscale Assisted Living Facility.
I have come to know a lot of the residents there in the 8 1/2 years Mom has lived there.
In November 2017, I thought I would share what I love to do with the residents of the Coventry facility. I started making Thanksgiving and Christmas cards for them. A lot of the residents no longer have family and my beautifully created cards that I send monthly to each resident is a reminder that I am their friend.
Mom fell and dislocated her shoulder and due to a defect in her bone structure, the shoulder dislocates by itself. How painful that must be.
Mom will be moving to another facility, Mary Manor at the end of this month, This facility will give her a better ratio of caregiver to patient. Mom is now wheelchair bound and requires a lot more extra attention.
Beginning in January 2018, I am now sending my cards to all the Assisted Living & Memory Care residents living in the Belle Meade Retirement Community. It gives me a purpose in life to share what I love to do.
I really love the Picture Perfect Designer Series Paper designed by Stampin’ UP! Each piece of paper has a 3D effect and is simply gorgeous.
