The seven residents who call Roosevelt Medical Center's Alzheimer's Unit home are enjoying the warmth of colorful blankets following the recent donation of hand-stitched quilts made by Linda Sorensen. Her father, Russell Oelkers, called Roosevelt Medical Center home for about one year before his passing.

"Older people are often cold and many of them are chair-bound. I thought this was a way I could honor my father, while also making the residents more comfortable," said Sorensen, of the McCabe area.

Wanting little recognition for her efforts, Sorensen stated she simply wanted to make sure the quilts were used and enjoyed by the residents.

"The quilts are amazing. We are always inspired by the thoughtful donations given to our facility. They enhance the lives of our residents and continue to show the strong support we have from our community," said Audrey Stromberg, RMC administrator.
