ATLANTA -- Georgia's nursing home leaders are inviting the public to stop by a local senior community during the holidays this year and spend time visiting with residents living in one of the state's many skilled nursing care centers and assisted living communities.
The Georgia Health Care Association's annual “Share a Moment of Love this Holiday” campaign, which helps people learn how the gift of time can be a wonderful present, is being celebrated until Sunday, Jan. 3.
“We’re all so busy during the holiday season that sometimes it is easy to forget just how much it means to spend a moment with a special person,” said Jon Howell, president & CEO of the Georgia Health Care Association. “Chance are that we all know someone who does not need another 'thing', but the gift that would mean the most to them is a visit, a moment of love.”
“Giving the gift of time, along with a hug and smile, can mean the world to so many people,” Howell added.
