Here’s my latest article on McKnight’s Long-Term Care News:
‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through long-term care,
Decorations sparkled and twinkled — no wall was bare.
The recreation department had concerts galore,
The residents enjoyed it — they clamored for more.
The maintenance guys put up outdoor lights,
Vendors sent cookies and other delights.
The nurses wore holiday tops and bright pins,
Each floor had menorahs and dreidels to spin.
Kwanzaa candles were set out next to the trees,
Poinsettias brightened the desk of Security.
IT staff donned elf hats, the business office did too,
Rehab wore red sweaters, with bells on their shoes,
Environmental services polished ’til the whole place gleamed,
Everyone had seasonal spirit, it seemed.
Outfits were chosen by residents with care,
Make-up and hairdos were all an affair.
Aides helped as needed with jewelry and ties,
To make sure “their people” looked fetching and wise.
