Dear God ... And so begins each story in "Dear God ... Letters from the Nursing Home." The stories are actually letters to God about what goes on in the minds and hearts of those who reside in, visit or work in the nursing home environment. They are about hope, healing, friendship, joy, and dreams as well as sadness and dying with dignity. They are stories about life. "My hope is that when people read this book, they will realize that a nursing home just might be a wonderful place to visit a family member or neighbor, meet a new friend, share a hobby or even comfort a total stranger," says Dear God's author, Mary-Ellen Low, a nursing home caregiver for more than thirty years. "It's my wish to bring attention to the problem of loneliness in the nursing home environment." The letters in "Dear God ..." will make readers smile, laugh, cry, and think about those who reside in nursing homes, as well as their families, and those who care for them.
