  1. I have been visiting my husband each day while he is in Re Hab after a hospital stay.. His roommate is named Ron and he is such a sweet man . He is eighty two years old and has lived in the ALF section for seven years .. While having some health issues he is now in the skilled nursing section..

    He lights up the room when he plays his harmonicas .. Little did I know he would inspire me to pick up my harmonica and play for him .. I haven’t played mine in almost ten years.. I forgot the joy it brings me to play and the delight he showed when he heard me play..my hubby loves hearing the harmonica tunes and it just makes everyone feel better..

    My husband was getting his haircut in there onsite shop when he first went to the Re Hab and in rolled Ron , playing several harmonica tunes for my hubby.. And now they are room mates..

    You never know where you will find inspiration and the great thing is, it makes everyone feel joy..

    Ron has many sweet visitors each day that have lived with him in the ALF section.. He is truly loved .. They come with their walkers and in wheelchairs and you can see it’s an effort for them but they don’t miss a day wanting to cheer up their friend..
    It’s a beautiful thing to see..

    I know it has made my husband feel better too.. They watch tv together and have conversations and my husband Rick watches out for Ron when he needs assistance ..

    Bless all caregivers
    Take care
