Alice was a resident of the Homestead Assisted Living Facility and moved into the St. Joseph’s Care and Rehab Center in the spring of 2016. Alice enjoyed craft work and crocheting and made some beautiful afghan blankets which were given to various members of her family. She enjoyed all the craft, entertainment, animal visits, and activities at St. Joseph’s. Alice enjoyed being interviewed by the student nurses for the care plans they had to do for their nursing studies and was always willing to participate in this part of the student nurses’ program.
