We gathered pictures of residents with their sweetheart.

Some were recent pictures, some were wedding pictures from long ago. Some were with their pet!

We printed them in black and white and pasted them in a big red heart.

On the back we put their name and their sweetheart.

We hung the hearts on a blossom tree we borrowed. You can buy them at Costco or online.

Residents loved it!

Lovely Idea! I bought a wall decal instead of a stand alone tree. Looking forward to making this happen with my residents :)

Thanks for your feedback Candace! If you can, send in a pic when you're done, we'd love to see how it turned out!

love this idea. I have purchased one from e bay to use. I think this would be great to share for those clients who are bed bound and use this as a theme for discussion and move it around to each person, changing the theme to their specific interests. Leave it in their rooms for a week in turn.
stimulate senses and aid one on one visits.
