Women Bring Nursing Home Joy With Music And Weekly Visits

A volunteer committee of women led by a woman overflowing with kindness that many call "the flower lady" brings music, smiles, and flowers to a nursing home every Thursday. The group was formed in 2008 after visiting a friend at the home and realizing that some residents didn't have visitors. At that point, they ladies decided to make it a routine to visit every week.

The music involves hymns and patriotic songs, and brings crowds to the hallways to listen. The women do not see an end in sight for what they feel called to do as a ministry. "Residents really enjoy it," said a nurse liaison at the nursing home. "They go room to room and if (patients) allow it, they're serenaded." For more, read the story
