Most nursing homes get a little dressed up for the holidays. But as recently published by McKnight’s Long Term Care News, “one Massachusetts facility is taking things to a whole new level, with adornments that would make even Martha Stewart jealous.”
We’re proud to report that the article was referring to Maristhill Nursing and Rehabilitation Center’s all-star director of activities, Bill Driscoll, who has his care community looking like a winter wonderland, decked out in every variety of light strands and tinsel.
“Creativity came at a very young age dating back to parochial school, Driscoll said. “My teachers were nuns. They were incredibly resourceful, and I learned to think creatively.”
Decorating the facility has become his passion and each year he looks to outdo himself, according to his colleagues.
“Seeing their home decked-out brings them immense joy,” Driscoll says of his residents. “Their faces light up and hearing them brag to their visiting family members is a feeling like no other.”
