niece sought help. He was living in a small room far from the center of the city and she was concerned for his safety and wellbeing. Mother Monica, former Director of the home, visited Don Juanito and after much discussion and cajoling finally convinced him to make a “short” visit. During that visit he met Don Virgilio and they became best friends as the “short” visit became a permanent stay. Don Juanito is quite content and is often visited by his family.

PRESENTAMOS A NUESTRO ABUELITO JUAN

Don Juanito, conocido también como “el Capitano” ha estado con nosotros desde así casi dos años. Llego al hogar ya que su sobrina buscaba quien la ayudara. Él vivía en una pequeña habitación, alejado del centro de la ciudad y a ella le preocupaba su bienestar y seguridad. La Madre Mónica, anterior Directora del Hogar, visitó a Don Juanito y después de muchas discusiones y persuasión finalmente lo convenció para que él hiciera una “breve” visita. Durante la visita conoció a don Virgilio y desde entonces se convirtieron en los mejores amigos en tanto que la “breve” visita se convirtió en estancia permanente. Don Juanito está bastante contento y con frecuencia lo visita su familia.
