Golden retriever becomes staff member of nursing home
The senior home named The Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society shares on Facebook that Gracie is now part of its staff. And her role is to bring happiness and joy not just to the residents but also to the facility’s workers.
So far, the young Golden Retriever is doing a great job. She managed to get this precious role thanks to the shelter’s social services manager named Pam Steward. Shortly after bringing the pup home, Pam decided that it was a good idea to take Gracie to her workplace.
The seniors love her!
Pam says that the senior home has had a lot of changes since Gracie has started coming around. The home has seen lots and lots of smiles and happy times. It seems that Gracie has been giving the seniors a lot of good things to talk about despite the events happening all over the world.
When Gracie comes to Pam’s workplace, she spends a lot of time with the senior home’s residents. She cuddles with them and comforts at least 30 senior citizens every day. During Gracie’s visits, a staff member from the facility comes with her to make sure that she and all the people she interacts with are safe.
And because the pandemic has made family visits challenging and sometimes impossible, the seniors may feel stressed and anxious. Gracie is obviously doing her best to help the seniors stay optimistic and patient as they wait for their families.
