Mount Vernon nursing home sponsors ‘Adopt-A-Grandad’ to give residents special Father’s Day

A nursing home in Mount Vernon made sure all the grandfathers in its care celebrated a very special Father’s Day.

Nursing home populations have proven especially vulnerable to COVID-19 outbreaks, making necessary the virtual isolation of residents for their own safety. Nursing homes have cut down or eliminated visits from family and friends, making special days, such as Father’s Day, potentially sad and lonely.

Not so for the residents of Willow Creek Healthcare Centre in Mount Vernon.
