Faye Giese (left) helped her 87-year-old mom, Jeanne Gunderson, get ready for an evening meal at the Barrett Care Center in Barrett last month. The family has strong ties to the nursing home in nearby Hoffman, but its recent closure forced Gunderson to move. Gunderson played piano at the Hoffman nursing home for more than two decades as a volunteer, and her husband, Wally, was a resident there for a few years before his death. (Ann Arbor Miller/MPR)
