    I, along with a couple of other guys, go regularly to nursing homes in the area and play music for the residents.

    They love it so much when we come, and we love coming, but it can just rip your heart out.

    An example...

    Some of the folks try to aplaud, but they cant get there hands to come together..:tear:

    Currently I don't have anyone in area nursing homes to visit and minister too. In the past I have made regular visits to nursing homes and the local hospice.

    Mt father has lived in one for the past 4 years. He moved in with us after my mother died. He was in the early stages of dementia and had a series of small strokes six months after moving in. We wanted him with us but we could not give him the level of care he needed at the time. He doesn't recognize any of us now. It's hard to go visit.

    The Baptist church sends folks in to do services on Sunday afternoon.

    I know the folks at my mom's nursing home love it when groups come in. In fact, someone sat down in played the piano playing old hymns, and a crowd gathered and sang.
