Alliance, NE: (Not quite) Hog Wild at Highland Park

Martina Navratilova was credited with saying, “The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved; the pig is committed.” Today, our Memory Support Household had some serious commitment as a 9-month old pig named Oreo came by for a visit. While not a fluffy kitten or playful puppy, Oreo managed to win over residents who, at first, were shocked to find a pig indoors. Through loving touches of the bristly fur or the feeding of Oreo’s favorite treat (carrots), concern and caution gave way to giggles and insistent requests to, “bring that cute thing over here.”

Quality Life:  We will create a living environment that radiates love, peace, spiritual contentment, dignity and safety, while encouraging personal independence.
