“The Work of My Hands”
Ms. Sally Smith, 88 years young, is participating in a manicure and nail polishing activity at your facility. She comments that she would like clear polish only because her hands show many years of wear and she does not want to draw attention to her age. The team member asks Sally about some of the memories that she has had that involve the work of her hands. Sally smiles and shares stories about her children and grandchildren and the hard times and good times. In the end, Sally chooses a bright red polish for her nails.
