This article talks about a nursing home that set up a program for people to "adopt" elderly people (i.e. keep in contact with them, show them support, etc.). This seems like a great idea that could be done anywhere - either through a nursing home facility or otherwise.
This is an incredible idea, I didn’t even know nursing homes offer this, I am literally ready to sign up! Thanks for sharing this information, I honestly don’t know how else I would have found this. Highly valuable information for someone who likes to volunteer on free time!
