The nursing home that gives residents foster kittens to care for
Pima Animal Care of Tucson has teamed up with Catalina Springs Memory Care nursing home to care for orphaned kittens. It's a win-win program, with kittens receiving round-the-clock care from numerous volunteer nursing home residents, and they feel wonderful doing it.

The first kittens fostered at the nursing home were Peaches and Turtle, each weighing only seven ounces. They quickly gained weight with around-the-clock care and feeding and will soon be ready for adoption. (Source)

The nursing home designed to resemble a 1940's neighborhood
The Lantern Of Chagrin Valley is located in Chagrin Falls, Ohio and it's one of three incredible facilities that have been specifically designed with Alzheimer's and dementia patients in mind. It's designed to resemble a small neighborhood — its "houses" have front porches that lead out to a simulated golf course, which gives the living facility the feel of a 1940's community.

Extraordinary attention is in every detail, including the paint schemes. "Every little thing you see, the wall color, the paint, actually has a therapeutic benefit, therapeutic value," said CEO Jean Makesh. 

Makesh decided to create a facility which incorporated these ideas into a positive living experience after he learned how controlled environments could be helpful in reducing anxiety, anger, and depression.
