In Stillwater, Minn., one daughter went above and beyond to spend time with her father. Shortly after Harold Racine, 87, moved to Good Samaritan Society elderly care home, the coronavirus pandemic hit. When the weather got too cold to visit her father by window, Lisa found herself looking for other options to spend time with him. When Lisa found out there was a job opening at the home, she went through the interview process and was offered the position. "It is very nice to see them together," said her cousin, Rene Racine, who also works as the nursing home administrator. When Lisa's dad learned his daughter took the job, "he was so excited and so happy that he was going to have a family member here. He was really surprised that she would do that, because she does have a full-time job," Rene added.
