“On my first day at my new workplace, the town’s only old people’s home. The head nurse introduced me to her team of staff and explained to me the daily routine.
The home had about 100 inhabitants. Some of them I had known from my childhood, grandparents of my childhood friends. Others were friends or neighbours of my own grannies, who lost their spouses and were left alone in their older years.
One day, I invited my grandmother for a visit. She was very hesitant and worried about her own feelings first. But coming to meet her friends turned out to be a delight. She was rejuvenated to be able to see them and recall many of their warm and cherished memories.”
