Grownup Guidelines Just For Kids!

THESE ARE SPECIAL THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN YOU GO TO THE NURSING HOME TO VISIT YOUR FRIENDS WHO LIVE THERE.

 

1)  Our older friends are easily upset by loud noises and cutting up. Don't shout, jump and run around.

 

2)  Think of something you can show them that you have learned to do (karate, Bible memory verses, read a poem, sing a song, sign language, play a musical instrument, and other things like that).

 

3)  Stay with your parent or leader and try to behave like them.

 

4)  Some of our older friends are very sick. Some have trouble seeing, hearing, and speaking. And some have trouble thinking. Do not laugh and make fun of them.

 

5)  Be kind. Remember how you feel when you get sick.

 

6)  When you get tired, tell your parent or leader quietly in their ear. If you whine or fuss you might hurt your older friends' feelings.

 

7)  REMEMBER, ONLY YOU CAN MAKE YOUR VISIT COUNT! If you like, use our COUNT FORM with these guidelines when you visit your older friends.  

 

(To help introduce your young folks to nursing home ministry, Mom and Dad or group leader, feel free to copy these guidelines to your word processor for printing.)
