ANGELS WALK AMONG US
Saturday I visited my borther who in in a Lansing nursing home. He suffers from Parkinsons's, a neurological affliction that is progressive and at this point, there is no cure. His movements are shakey, his speech slured and his response to medication is limited. Despite the difficulty in caring for him, the staff is remarkably attentive to his needs. Whenever I come to visit, I am recognized as Al's brother. Many of the staff are young, but the spirit of their attentiveness to the personal needs of patients is great. Many of the staff have worked there for many years, yet their friendly attitude is so outstanding.
I always leave there with a heavy heart, because he is my brother, but secure in the knowledge that he gets the best of care when I am not there and that care is provided by people who are not paid well, but do the job and do it with a smile. MAY GOD BLESS THOSE ANGELS THAT WALK AMONG US.
