About Those Nursing Home Hens…

I just had to share a link to her latest blog post. At the bottom of her post is a link to an article written about the Nursing Home Hens at SeniorLiving.Net. I absolutely LOVE this picture from her blog post:

Golson recalls one incident in particular, which exemplifies the reaction of the nursing home residents’ to the hens. “I watched as one of the nursing home employees wheeled a resident past the coop. The resident has dementia and was angry and agitated. I could tell the caregiver had little patience left, although she was doing her best to be kind and gentle. As they came upon the chickens, the resident had a moment of respite. She calmed as she looked at the hens. Her caregiver was able to a take a deep breath and relax. It lasted all of 30 seconds, but it made a positive difference in their day.”
