Short Stories about Forgiveness

Hi, I hope all of you had a really great Easter.
I am offered a casual job as a therapy assistant and I assist with activities one of my activities is to read a story to the residents before they all go to bed. I choose short stories as I feel a longer one is a bit too much for the end of the day. As they have plenty of activities during the day.
What do you think is a good idea. Long or short
Thanks
Chris

Hi everyone I am doing some light duties due to a injury assisting the OTA I am so new to this and was wondering if anyone can help me in what I could do when a resident reverts to their original language during activities. Please help sometimes I just smile and show her some hand movements to finish the task. But she gets agitated. Please help
