The Cuero Record
Cuero Nursing and Rehabilitation Center will take part in Grandparent’s Day again this year, as they are encouraging the community to adopt a grandparent on Sept. 13.
Jennifer Hahn, an independent Mary Kay Beauty consultant and nurse, is leading the effort. Sponsorships are needed by Aug. 30 to provide gifts for the residents of the nursing home.
“Three to four years ago, carnations and cookies were taken to the residents on Valentine’s Day,” Hahn said.
Many of the residents are provided with items from the nursing home, but it is often not something personal from a family member. Adopt a Grandparent for Grandparent’s Day provides a way to not only give something personal but also to spend time with the residents and talk to them.
