There’s No Place Like Home – Many will remember this line from the 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz.  In this movie Dorothy, (Judy Garland), went looking for her heart’s desire “somewhere over the rainbow.”  In the end, Dorothy realized her heart’s desire was at home in Kansas when she said, “Oh Auntie Em, there’s no place like home.”  Home can mean many special things for each of us. For me home is my family, home was my grandparent’s farm, home has been McFarlane Park.  Home can be the love of family, friends, and special places. I am contemplating about what home means because of something my mother said, after residing at La Porte City Nursing and Rehab for only a few weeks. It was getting late for Mom on a visit to my brother’s house when she announced, “it is time for me to be getting home.” Now, that may not seem to some as anything extraordinary, but to me it meant Mom found a new home. Georgia, my mom, considered the staff at the nursing home her family and friends.  I can think of no higher compliment to La Porte City Nursing and Rehab then when Georgia called it home. From Georgia’s family, thank you very much for providing a Home for her in her final years. 19-1-pd
