Thank You Card

Hey There & How Is Everybody Today?

I wanted to make a special thank you card for a bunch of great caretakers, who take care of the elderly in an Asissantant Living Facility.

I try to go there every 2 weeks to visit a good friend of mine & how I enjoy talking to the other elderly residents there. They make me laugh, I learn things that I didn't know & I have such a wonderful day when I visit. 
So I thought that I would make this special card for the owner of the place & for also the nurses & everybody else that works & takes care of the residents. They all are so kind & giving.
I have heard so many horror stories about nursing homes & asisstant living places, but I have to say that this one is far the best that I have ever seen.
The lady that I am friends with is so very  happy there. She goes to church every sunday, they take her out to lunches, dancing, she has a crafting time & so many other things to keep their residents active & feeling young & happy. In the summer they even have barbecues & invite the families to participate, how nice.
I always thought that visiting a facility like this would be so depressing, but this one isn't. The facility is somewhat old, but is very well kept & very clean.
I am so grateful that my friend is living in such a wonderful place for the last years of her life.
