Support Our Residents
Billye's story exemplifies our mission.
As we age, there are challenges in facing life. Our calling is to provide nurturing care to empower older adults to live peacefully and meaningfully.
SUPPORT OUR MISSION
The first time I first met Billye, she was quietly sitting in her wheelchair, unable to speak from a series of strokes. I was playing a game with the woman next to her of “pick up the napkin when I drop it...over and over." The woman seemed unaware, engaged only in the napkin, but I saw Billye’s eyes sparkling and she had the subtle suggestion of a smile.
Pausing the game, I kneeled down and looked Billye in the eye. “You’re in there, aren’t you?” She stared intently at me. “If you think that was the silliest thing you’ve seen a chaplain do today, blink your eyes.” Swiftly, firmly, she closed her eyes and opened them, looking right at me.
Billye and I advanced from blinking to sophisticated conversations based on yes/no questions that Billye answered by lifting one or two fingers or making a fist. Soon, others began conversing with Billye, giving her control over her world with a fist, two fingers, and a blink.
