Jim, spiritual care coordinator at ProMedica Hospice Serving Southwest Michigan, and magician for more than 25 years who has performed magic tricks all over the world, performed a magic show for patients and residents at Rehoboth Oaks Adult Foster Care. It all began when Jim toured the facility during his orientation with ProMedica Hospice and showed the residents a trick. They enjoyed it so much that he promised he would come back when his orientation was complete to perform an entire show for them.
When the day for the show came, nine residents and multiple staff members attended. Attendees’ smiles lit the room as they watched Jim perform while they enjoyed breakfast. Jim stated, “Whether my audience is age ten or 110, there is nothing as satisfying as seeing the wonder in the people’s eyes and a smile across their faces. I thank God for the ability to use this talent to bring joy to others.” Jesse, manager of business development, shared, “This show was really important because it is our mission every day to make personal connections and create memorable moments that will enrich each patient’s life. Watching Jim perform his magic tricks really brought back good memories of things in the past to our patients.”
