For Love and Art
November 26, 2011

I spent several years researching nursing home and assisted living care. When I learned about For Love and Art, I thought is was such a wonderful gift to residents who don't get to see art and beauty. The images are magical. And I think it's even more wonderful because a caring volunteer spends one-on-one time with a resident sharing their joy and appreciation for art and beauty. It's a wonderful way for residents to feel cared for, loved, inspired, and connected in a way that is out of the ordinary - which leaves them feeling special. This project is from the heart and deserves to be recognized and known. Every facility should have one of these amazing books that draws the "reader" into a world of visual delight.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

viewing the book and providing ideas to volunteers as a business consultant to help them expand what they do. I want them to be successful. They have a passion for touching the lives of the elder residents in facilities all over.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

raise more money so that every facility has a book.
