For some nursing home patients, life can be disheartening but sometimes all they need is someone to spend time with them and lift their spirits up. Even a Charlie Brown Medley by the Piano Guys brings them joy! When Doug Dawson, an employee at the Lyngblomsten nursing home in Minnesota, decided to bring his teacup poodle named Nala to work, he never expected her reaction.
Within minutes, Nala was visiting patients and giving them the attention they deserved. Nala was giving them therapy the best way she knew how, by sitting on their laps and spending time with each and everyone of them.
Watch this teacup poodle ride elevators to visit nursing home residents…
How she makes the residents feel still warms my heart. Amazingly, she rides the elevator herself and recognizes what floor she’s on and who needs the most attention.
Please share this amazing story of Nala with your friends and family.
