From the article:
"The camp, which runs eight weeks, was designed so that nursing home employees could bring their children and grandchildren to work with them during the summer months, benefiting not only them but also the children and elderly residents who learn from each other.
Standing Stone Care and Rehab is one of 13 Signature HealthCARE facilities now offering the camp. The first was held in 2008 at Pickett Care and Rehabilitation Center in Byrdstown.
Huckeby said, “Once it started it just really blossomed. This is the second year we have had the camp, and I’m telling you it has made such a difference in the lives of our residents and in the liveliness of our facility. It’s like daylight and dark.
“And it’s wonderful to watch the children interact with the elders. I remember when I was younger being afraid to go into a nursing home because people are in wheelchairs and may look different to you. But these kids, they don’t see that anymore. They run in, give hugs, sit on laps, tell stories, and can’t wait to get there the next day. It’s just really amazing.”
