French Prairie Nursing accepting holiday gifts for residents

French Prairie Nursing & Rehab is accepting donations of Christmas gifts for its residents.

Unlike previous years, there will not be a wish list provided due to the larger number of short-term visits, according to administrator Karla Hunt.

“As part of the changing care needs of our community French Prairie Nursing and Rehab is serving fewer long-term residents and more short stay post-hospital patients,” she said.

“This definitely has an impact on how we celebrate Christmas and remember those who are unable to be at home for the holidays.”

Instead of a Christmas wish list, for which each resident was interviewed and their requests were published, French Prairie is asking for donations that can be placed in a gift bag appropriate for short stay patients.

Items could include socks, blankets, lotions, books and candy.

Anyone providing gifts is asked to do so by Dec. 16.

For more information, or to adopt a long-stay resident, call Lynnette at 503-982-0111.
