[friendsofbroadside] Request from Frances Shani Parker please vote to help this Michigan Author!
Today I am writing to request your voting support. One of my blog posts from last year has been nominated as a finalist for the 2012 Assisted Living Today Award. My post is competing for votes with four other finalists in the category of Best Senior Homes and Senior Care Facilities Articles.
Very few bloggers include the voices of older people of color or the concerns of urban nursing homes. My blog post nominated for the award emphasizes intergenerational partnerships between schools and nursing homes. A photo and poem about an African American child helping a nursing home resident who has dementia are included.
Please go to the website below toService-Learning Reflection Poem (School-Nursing Home Partnership, Dementia).
Vote at the bottom of the page under Vote for Your Favorite Today. No personal information is requested.
