Slide show: Helping hands

Original post made on Feb 19, 2008

Palo Alto High School senior Gabrielle Hadley has been making thrice-weekly visits since August to elderly residents at Lytton Gardens, a retirement and nursing home in Palo Alto. She was inspired by family, after caring for a great-grandmother who slowly deteriorated under the effects of Alzheimer's disease, forgetting everyone's name except for Gabrielle's.

I Can't Thank the Weekly enough for various Multimedia on line!
I've never been inside Lytton Gardens or Ronald McDonald House, but this program brings me right in, through the helping hands of local teens--how great to see this side of teens! Someone is very sensitive to create this--it's not a program about drugs, or argumentative Palo Altans, but a nice story about nice people helping others. God bless them!
