Norma Stillings played Christmas songs at Kabul Nursing Home, Wednesday afternoon, Rocky Ridge in Mansfield, Friday afternoon, and the Heart of the Ozarks Healthcare Center, Christmas morning. She visited with a few residents at these facilities. Many nursing home residents have a hard time at Christmas if they do not have family or the family does not come. Some few residents were able to go out for a holiday celebration, and a good number of visitors did come for the special events at these homes. Winter road conditions and illness may interfere with visits to nursing home residents, so it is a good thing to visit at nursing homes when you can.
