How do you inspire a 54 year old woman, in a nursing home that cannot speak, not to give up?  We all need hope . . .
 

Would you be able to bring a very calm dog or therapy dog for her to see and pet?  When my Dad was ill and had been hospitalized for a long time,  I asked the nurses if there was any way he could be in a wheel chair to bring him down to the patio area at the hospital so he could see his little dog.   I felt it would bring his spirits up.  To my surprise the hospital allowed me to bring the dog up to his room.  She jumped out of my hands onto his bed and began rubbing her head on his chin and neck.  Dad had tears of joy.  I really thing this helped him rally from a very bad time. 

You are absolutely right Sister.  We all need hope... 

Took her little dog in there once, Mr. Jenkins.  Unfortunately, she cried and cried cause she wanted to go home with her dog.

Yes, we all need hope . . .

How are her hands?  Can she knit or crochet?  Could she crochet baby bonnets for infants and donate to hospitals?  Or scarves/sashes for older people who get cold easy?  It would give her something to do.  I'm sure you could get donated yarn.  

Thank you for the ideas.  She can only used one hand.  Her right hand and arm don't work at all.
Additionally, in order to count stitches, she counts out loud and then gets confused and has to start again.  Her mind is not the same anymore.  This is so hard for her.
 

Sister continued Prayers for Connie, you and the rest of the family.  an angelic monkey Is there any way to have her help a preschool or young youth group  by sorting out projects for them.

I'm not sure what this means (more coffee please).  She is in the nursing home.

Loving these thoughtful ideas!

Sister,

For awhile my mom had a teen come visit her.  (She is in assisted living).  It was a teen girl thAt would just come and talk and spend time with her.  I know the teen, at one point, brought her a teddy bear that Mom still has.  I'm not sure who or how this was arranged.

Maybe a Girl Scout troop could "adopt" her. You could reach out to an older troop and see if this is something they could put together for you.  They could come share time with her as a group or on an individual basis.  And find maybe some ways to pass time with her.

Our troop did this once and we even "initiated" her into our troop.  Took a carved pumpkin at Halloween - sang Christmas carols at the holidays, etc. 

Find a creative Girl Scout leader?

Wish you well - Cad

Maybe I should clarify  huh.     When I worked and we had art projects with the children. Getting activities together was time consuming. I understand she can't cut things out. But sorting out different things she could do. Like sorting out beads or scraps of different colors of paper for projects. Even  used crayons by colors.  Stuff like that. Just a thought.

Hi Monkeys

How's everybody doing?  Continued prayers for all in need. Miss you all. Hope everyone's doing well.

Kind of bummed out. My youngest brother finely made a trip to Southern California to visit the family. There was just no way we could go at this time. But he sent a bunch of pictures. And he is having a wonderful visit with everyone. I am so happy that he was able to go.

Had a very trying day. Daughter called and ask if I could burn a CD for her. Told her yes. She came over and bought a recovery program for her computer. As it wouldn't boot up and said she needed to put in her recovery disc. Which she didn't have. She found one on line and downloaded it. But guess what the computer the kids got me didn't have a dang burner in it. It plays Cds & DVD's but didn't burn. So off to the store we went and I got an external burner. Got home loaded the driver etc. Went to download the recovery program she had bought. Dang computer said it was in a zip file and had to be opened. Guess what didn't have that one the new computer either. So found on on line that Microsoft recommended. Bought that. Download it. Then was told we needed a something else to burn it on the CD. She found that and downloaded that. And after about 4 hours she got it burned on to a Cd and went home.

After she got home had dinner went in to download the recovery disc. Her dang computer booted up just fine.    I needed both things but what a hassle it was.

Evening Monkeys   Yikes we got some much needed rain here in North Texas. But I think some areas got a bit more than they wanted all at once. Some places got between 7 & 10 inches of rain in about 8 hours. Waiting to see what the totals will be when it's all done some time later tonight.

We did well. The storms sort of split around our area - nearby got hit with branches down and trees toppled. Thanks for asking!
