1. The reading for this week was the story of the “starfish”. How can the analogy of the starfish relate to visiting people in the nursing home? In what ways is visiting the nursing home more than just throwing starfish back in the ocean?
2. Encouraging people to keep their elderly family members at home, encouraging people to visit their family members who are in nursing homes, or fighting for changes to the law to improve conditions in the nursing home. Which of these 3 causes would you be most likely to support? Explain.
