How to fix nursing home abuse in a new way
A few years ago, nursing home residents were treated to a visit from an unlikely visitor.
They were invited to tour the nursing home’s medical department, where an elderly woman named Carol had just died.
The room where Carol died was empty, but the woman’s body had not been removed from the home.
Instead, the room was decorated with flowers and pictures of the deceased.
The staff, however, didn’t seem to notice.
Carol’s room was empty when the visitors arrived.
What they did notice was that Carol had died from pneumonia, and that the staff had failed to tell her that she had been cremated.
The next day, Carol’s funeral was held, and the nursing staff decided that it was better to not tell her about the funeral arrangements.
It was then that the residents of Collingswood, Missouri, came up with the idea of creating a memorial for Carol’s memory, to which they added a few reminders.
The Memorial to Carol, now in place at Collingswoods nursing home (and with a donation from the nursing center), features photos of the elderly woman and notes her medical history.
A group of Collingwood residents, including Dr. J.P. Kukla, took to the grounds and organized a memorial that included an obituary, a photograph, and a poem.
The group’s intention was to create a lasting memorial that would honor Carol’s spirit.
They didn’t want it to just be a remembrance, but to provide closure and honor Carol as well.
To the nursing staffers, this idea was an invitation to create something meaningful for their loved ones.
The nursing staff and residents in Collingsville were supportive of the idea, and they wanted to make it happen.
So they created a memorial to commemorate Carol’s passing.

The memorial is designed to be a place where everyone can come to remember and remember Carol.
The nurses and residents of the nursing facility also participated in the process.
Carol, who had a terminal cancer diagnosis, was cremated in a nearby cemetery.
At the time of her death, the Collingwoods staff had never heard of her cancer.
After Carol’s cremation, the staff made plans to use the ashes to decorate the room.
This would be the last time the staff would be able to visit the room to see Carol’s remains.
In order to make the room special, the Staff of the Nursing Home decided to use photographs of Carol’s family.
The photos were taken by Carol’s daughter, Jennifer, who was visiting the nursing care home with her mother, Linda, when she noticed a strange look in Carol’s face.
Jennifer had seen Carol before in the room when she visited her mother in the hospital.
In the photo, Linda was holding Carol’s hands, and Jennifer was holding her daughter’s hands.
The Staff of Colleswoods decided to add a note to the memorial stating that Carol was not the only person to have passed away at Collinswood.
This note was included in the memorial.
The note included a photograph of Carol, Jennifer and Linda holding the flowers that the nursing residents had placed on the floor.
The family was proud to have a special place to remember Carol and Jennifer, and so they took it upon themselves to create this memorial.
Since the staff of Collinswoods was unaware of Carol and Linda’s death, they did not want to leave behind a place for the rest of the community to memorialize the elderly, and thus created a plaque to mark the passing of their mother.
The plaque includes a photograph taken by Linda in the dining room of the room where the staff found Carol.
It depicts a beautiful photograph of the four of them, including Linda holding Carol and the flowers.
In a letter sent to the nursing homes staff, the families members expressed their gratitude for the work the staff has done to create the memorial and their own personal memories of Carol.
Although the nursing program at CollingWood had been closed for several years, the members of CollingersWood decided to open their doors for visitors this weekend, to celebrate the memory of Carol who passed.
The Nursing Home staff will be hosting an event Saturday, September 21, from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the CollinsWood Nursing Center.
A photo of the event is below.
The event is open to all residents of this facility, but they must bring a photo ID to register.
There will be an opportunity to learn about the staff’s history, as well as to honor Carol, and she will be available to answer questions.
The guests are welcome to come along for the ride, but there will be no photography, and no photo taking.
There are no plans to hold a celebration.
