I contacted the "Health Care Center of Windemere" to get information about the residents. They have about 120 residents at any one time. When we broke them into different categories, they have many "rehab", and other residents that have family and friends in the area, and really are not alone.
There are about 25 females, and 5 male residents who are "long term", and have little or no family and friends in the area. At the Aug. meeting we decided to focus on these individuals for our Christmas project.
I will provide a stocking for each resident, and I'm working on crochet capelets. I'm also making some lap quilts, and I will make pillow cases. I will post some links to items that may be fun to make. If you know you are going to make something for this community, please post here. If you know something you would like to make, but need help finding a pattern or whatever, please let me know.
I am posting some links to items members had mentioned possibly making.
Let's see if we can't make this a wonderful Christmas for these elderly residents! (And have fun doing it)!
