Visit To Remember
The holidays are popular times
to make visits to nursing homes or
hospitals. These visits are often a
resident’s lifetime to the rest of the
world. But for the visitor, they
may not always be easy.
Sometimes conversations are
Odor? Bad Taste? Stains? Iron? Manganese?
Mineral Buildup? Color? Bacteria? Virus?
Harmful Micro-organisms? Hydrogen Sulfide?
THM Precursors? Other Contaminants?

the residents once or twice a year.
Other times people are visiting
individuals they don’t even know
as a community service. But with
a little planning and courage, a
visitor can transform these per

that are truly memorable.
Conversation can be encour
aged in several ways. Consider
taking a local newspaper or
church newsletter with you to
share with your friend. Just by
browsing through articles
together, you can connect your
friend to the community and also
spark some interesting discus
sions. Be sure to allow lots of
pauses. By waiting silently, you
encourage your friend to join in
Asking a resident for specific
directions to complete a task is
another way to start a conversa
tion. Did this person make an
absolutely delicious dessert? Did
he refinish furniture? or garden?
Think of a task that you’d like to
perfect and ask your friend how
she would do it
One of the best techniques for
generating good dialogue is to ask
open-ended questions—ones that
begin with “How,” “What,"
“Why”, “When,” “Where.” These
questions cannot be answered
with a simple “yes” or “now.”
They demand a more detailed
response. When you make your
next visit, why not try one of these
conversation starters: How did

you spend the holidays when you
were young? Who is the most
unusual person you ever met?
What’s one of your funniest
memories from your courting
days? How did you earn your first
dollar, and what did it buy?
These are great ways to lead a
person into a wonderful time of
reminiscing and sharing. By ask
ing an open-ended question, you
take the focus off yourself and
give the limelight to the person
you’ve visiting. Over my times of
visiting, I have discovered my
favorite two conversation starters.
They both require a lot of thought.
The first is “What is one of the
hardest decisions you ever had to
make?” and the other is “What is
the most beautiful think you
During the past few weeks, I’ve
been asking people I see “What’s
