CHHS BSW Students Make Valentine’s Cards for Brookdale Residents

On Feb. 14, a group of BSW students created and delivered Valentine’s Day cards to elderly residents at Brookdale Senior Living.

Monica Deese, Kobi Etheridge and Meredith Bell saw an opportunity to give back to the community by spreading love this Valentine’s day. The holidays can be especially hard for individuals at nursing homes because families may be absent or unavailable.

“The event was so heartwarming but heartbreaking as well,” Meredith Bell said. “I am thankful I could take part in conversation with them, give them a handmade card and just spend time with them on a day that is reserved for showing love.”

The cards, created on festive card stock, included messages like “May you know today and every day that you are loved.”
