Opportunities to Serve our Nursing Home

● Our residents appreciate when a prayer is given for their noon meal.  If any brothers would be willing to have a noon prayer for our residents at the Nursing Home, please contact Patsy Kaeb at the Home.   This can be a 1 day a week commitment or serve as a sub to be called when we are short.  This again is another way to serve our residents that will only take a few minutes out of your day but is so appreciated by them.

● Are you interested in driving a resident to a doctor appointment occasionally.  All it takes is a simple driving test to get a special license.  This can be a rewarding time for you to spend time with our elderly loved ones.  Call Patsy Kaeb at the Home if you are interested in being an occasional driver.
