MILLER’S CELEBRATES THE JOURNEY OF JUANITA DEWITT Celebrating the Journey is the theme for National Nursing Home Week 2012. Throughout the week, Miller’s Merry Manor will plan events to honor the lives-and milestones- of the people they care for and the staff who swerve them. Following is one of those stories.
Juanita DeWitt has been a resident at Miller’s Merry Manor for almost 2 years and has often shared stories of her worldly travels with her friends, staff and the other residents. Juanita has traveled to many locations throughout the world with her husband Kenneth. They traveled to England and saw the changing of the guards, Hawaii where they participated in Luaus, Rio De Janeiro where they enjoyed the sights, Spain where portions of their group went to the see the Bulls though Juanita chose to not go, and to Africa where Juanita rode a camel.
“It was a wonderful opportunity to be able to travel with my husband and see so many interesting places,” states Juanita. “I am not sure that I can state my favorite, though both Africa and Rio where kind of sad.”
