Our Mini Version of While You Were Out 

Remember the home decorating show, While You Were Out? Our staff from Right at Home in Northern Neck did a mini version of the show for a senior with no near family, who lives in a rather bare minimum nursing facility. For a very minimal budget, we changed her room from institutional to warm and welcoming!

A Bit of Color Can Brighten a Room!

We replaced the standard-issue bedspread with soft new sheets, a colorful comforter, and a big fuzzy body pillow to lean up against or snuggle with. We provided a bright pink plastic container for her personal grooming items and a small paper treasure box for keepsakes. We added a couple framed photos of her and her new friends from some of our outings as a finishing touch. We enjoyed our time as much as she did!

Before: A standard-issue bedspread After: A sparkling bed like our friend's personality
