A VISIT TO A NURSING HOME

A VISIT TO LIVE AND LIVE


NURSING HOME
On 19 March 2011, Saturday my
classmates and I visited Live And Live
Nursing Home in Bukit Baru, Melaka.
We were there from 9 a.m. till 5 p.m.
We were accompanied by my teachers,
……………………….. . We gathered at
our school at 8 a.m. and left to the
nursing home by bus.
We went there to learn about the home
and to spend time with the old folks/
(residents) there. When we reached there,
we were greeted by the old folks and staff
of the nursing home and they were happy to
see us. We sat and talked to them for a
while. The old folks told us about the life at
the nursing home. Some talked about their
own families and why they were at the
nursing home.
At 12.30 p.m., we had lunch that we
brought with us. It was a simple meal but
the joy and laughter during the meal made it
special.

After lunch, we read stories to them.


One of our classmates played his guitar
and we sang songs for them. The old folks
seemed to be happy and joined us. Then
we played games with them and had a
good time.
We also met ……………………. the
Chairman of Live And Live Nursing Home
and we had tea together.
When it was time to leave, I felt
happy that I had visited the old folks of
Live And Live Nursing Home. At the
same time, I felt a little sad. These
people did not have the comforts I had.
Yet, they did not complain. I learnt a
valuable lesson that is I will never
abandon my parents and will look after
them. I will be grateful to them to the
rest of my life.
