Last year, Ceceley Chambers visited a Massachusetts home for people with memory loss. As a chaplain who has worked with seniors and hospice patients, Chambers knew the residents liked having kids around.
She just wasn't sure her 9-year-old son, William, would feel the same about being there.
"My original thought was, 'Oh no,' " William tells her, on a recent visit with StoryCorps. "I was a little afraid."
But as it turns out, he really liked it there. "They were very thoughtful," he says. "They were very accepting."
