In brief: Check with NH staff

Check with the staff at the nursing home which activities they will have, which food is going to be served.
Find with local churches or non profit organizations which religious services, concerts, dinners or activities they may offer to that nursing home. Find what your parents would appreciate at the nursing home & discuss with the staff t the nursing home.

Did they have a stroke and now there are some things that they just can't do? You could help them a lot, by telling them, i will be here every _____ days to visit you.
