In Response to Re: Christmas ideas:
nikki, the staff would generally love treats but so many places have different rules by law or whatever that vary state to state it can be difficult to take anything for patients both of my older sisters were in a nursing home in buffalo tx at different times recovering and re-habbing from surgeries (femur and hip) and i took food for them and the staff weekly and selected patients were allowed to share what i left w/ the staff according to their dietary restrictions but when my youngest sister was at a small assisted living facility i could only take food items for my sister and i had to stay w/ her while she ate and take all leftovers with me even the staff could not share there before i took anything, i would check w/ them to make sure that even the staff could partake and i understand that they are not being mean but are adhering to dietary rules made for the patients safety

I would not expect the items to be shared the residents. I know there are not only dietary needs that must be followed but since the items I bring in would be from "an unapproved source" I know it probably could not be shared. I will bring in some things on Monday, that will be the next day he goes.
I have been taking him on alternating days M, W, F one week the next week Tue, Th. it gives me a break. Not sure if it gives him a break or not. I will probably start to bring him 3 days a week full time in Jan.
