Lebanon Care Center


What is it?
 


Lebanon Care Center is a local nursing home just five minutes away from McKendree.


What's involved?
 


Students talk, play bingo, throw parties and just have a good time.  This is a great opportunity to socialize and interact with residents at Lebanon Care Center.


Why would I want to do that?
 


"It's wonderful interacting with the residents and making new friends. They all have so much that they can tell us, and to be able to give them an opportunity to socialize is wonderful. So few people have someone that just wants to talk to them; and by going to Lebanon Care Center, we are able to provide that connection." ~Kari Gibbs

"When McKendree goes on break, all of us really miss them." ~ Lela, a resident
