A Special Trip Home
Meet Janet, a Kirkwood Corners Senior Living resident! Janet spent many years living in the Lincoln, NH area and has many memories of her time spent there. The True Blue team at Kirkwood Corners put together a plan for the community’s first overnight trip! Where’d they choose to go? You guessed it; to the Lincoln, NH area!
The team planned the trip around the sights that would be familiar to Janet. First, they did a scenic train ride in North Conway, and then drove along the Kancamagus Highway, a route Janet often traveled. The foliage was at its peak--and beautiful!
Janet pointed out the mountains and shared stories about skiing and watching her kids ski. Once we got to Lincoln proper, Janet was amazed about how much it had changed! She reminisced about how busy it would get in the winter when people came to ski in the area and how happy she was to see the area doing so well!
The team drove around the town and Janet pointed out landmarks. Along the way, she noted the places that were still the same and what used to be there.
In the morning, we drove to the next town where Janet’s mother was buried. We brought flowers to her gravestone. It was a beautiful morning and Janet shared a few happy memories about her mom. We visited the street where she lived, and drove past where she used to teach. Janet shared a few happy memories about her teaching days; she had traveled all over the world teaching students in several different countries!
We drove back along the Kancamagus and stopped at various viewpoints that we had missed the day before. We shared memories that will last a lifetime! What a wonderful opportunity to show Janet how much we love her.
