    Mum moved into her care home ten days ago, and after only a couple of unsettled days , she is doing really well. She looks five years younger, anxiety lines have gone and she seems very relaxed in her new environment.
    Mum has been a working woman all her life, and has never had "nice nails".Yesterday I visited her and the staff had manicured and painted all of the ladies nails . This is something my mum has never done for herself , and she was delighted with them.
    She kept holding her hands out , admiring them and showing them off to everyone who passed.
    A little thing, but a lovely gesture I thought.:)

    Love to you all
    Ally xx

    That`s lovely Ally. Firstly because your mother has had a `treat`, and secondly because the staff at the home still see their residents as women who aren`t past a bit of spoiling.
    I can tell by the tone of your post that it`s helped you as well, to know your mother has been made so happy by this thoughtful gesture.
    With love

    Such a lovely gesture, Ally. I'm not surprised your mum was so proud. It's these little caring gestures that make our day.

    Love,

    That is so thoughtful of them. It just proves it's the little gestures that can make all the difference. The staff sound lovely.
