Unforgettable: Short Stories

Looking for a great summer read?

“Unforgettable: Short Stories,” written by Minneapolis author and friend of Jones-Harrison Paulette Bates Alden, is a collection of short stories detailing “the presence of the past, the power of mercy, and the enduring nature of love. They follow Miriam Batson, the protagonist of Paulette Alden’s earlier collection, FEEDING THE EAGLES, into middle age, as she navigates such experiences as the suicide attempt of a student of hers; the death of a beloved maid from her Southern childhood; the shock and anger resulting from a job rejection possibly due to sex discrimination; and the sudden death of her father.

Five of the stories track Miriam’s efforts to stave off putting her mother in a nursing home, as her mother succumbs to Alzheimer’s. Anyone who has experienced such a situation will relate to the poignancy, guilt, and sometimes painful humor involved in caring for a failing parent.”

Jones-Harrison Benevolence Fund

For 125 years, Jones-Harrison has taken joy in providing innovative programs and supportive services to the elderly in a loving, gracious setting.

Residents at Jones-Harrison enjoy revolutionary services, therapies and facilities, including the recently renovated apartments in our assisted living facilities. These facilities are designed to provide our residents with the best possible opportunity to continue to live independently, with on-site therapy services, customized dining plans, and 24-hour access to our skilled nursing facility.

It is our goal to provide these services to our Assisted Living tenants who are in need of them. To meet this goal, Jones-Harrison has recently established the Benevolence Fund to benefit Assisted Living tenants in need of financial assistance. Our residents are enjoying healthier and more independent lives, and we need your help to continue to provide access to our innovative Assisted Living program.

If you would like to help us to continue to grow our Benevolence Fund, ensuring that our residents can enjoy the high quality of life and independence that they deserve, please click here to make a donation to the Benevolence Fund today.

Thank you for supporting Jones-Harrison!
