Choice …

This is an interesting experiment on the power of giving seniors influence on a part of their living environment.  Allowing them to feel their input is valued and encouraged. Apathy and depression often come hand in hand with nursing home residency.

While I have no way of knowing for certain, I suspect none of the seniors involved in this project were dementia patients, they were simply people who’d grown apathetic and depressed because they no longer had any influence on their own lives.

I like the idea … see what you think and let me know!
