Babies can create a better day!
Babies evoke a positive emotional response in most older adults.
When our guests are able to hold a baby, their day is better. The
interaction is priceless. The smiles shared and the sweet baby talk
create a happy environment. We are lucky to have guests whose
grand-children visit us. We have multiple days where children will
visit and interact with our guests. Intergenerational activity is
mutually beneficial. While the children experience diminished fear
of an older adult and enjoy the contact with our guests, the guest
experiences a sense of increased self-worth, and an improved
emotional state. My guests are able to carry the positive emotions
throughout their day.
Now we know what has
been eating our lilies!
At the breakfast table, my guest,
Ann said, "There are two animals
in the yard." As I looked out, I was
amazed to find two deer grazing.
We went out on the deck and I was
able to capture them on camera as
they leaped away. Pretty awesome!
