My father's first room at the Hebrew Home
And the aides don't put the blue quilt on the bed - it's lightweight and washable, just so he'll have something cozy - so that's another thing I do when I arrive: take the quilt out of the closet and put it on his bed.
I guess they always sleep in the white sheets I see when I go into the room. The rooms are warm, though.
In the summer the rooms are usually warm, but when the air conditioning broke, the rooms were unbelievably hot. I just happened to visit the day after the master air conditioning system broke and went out immediately to buy a big box fan.
The air conditioning was broken for several days. They never informed families, so they could bring fans.
A note: my father's bruises are almost healed. But now he has a sore on his lip. I wonder how often he gets to wash his hands.
