Kids inspire lonely nursing home residents

It’s been a little more than a month since the Lehigh Valley reopened from its coronavirus shutdown, and most of us have settled into our “new normal.”

Thousands of people statewide haven’t been afforded that opportunity yet, though. Most nursing homes still are closed to visitors. Residents still have to make do with video chats, phone calls and window visits.

They need something, anything, to lift their spirits. Residents of a few local homes got a surprise pick-me-up from children at KidsPeace.
