蒙恩园的日常

Daily Life in Meng’en Elderly Home

在距离河南郑州55公里的开封市尉氏县有这样一个地方:

三层高的联排别墅看起来十分的整洁大气

There is a place in Weishi County of Kaifeng City, 55 kilometers away from Zhengzhou, Henan Province:

A three-floor townhouse looks very tidy and spacious.

 

房前是一片修整干净的园子

园子里有开得正好的月季花

还有长势喜人的小葱、生菜

时常会有三五位老人坐在凉亭中闲话家常

或是静静的漫步其中

There is a clean garden in front of the house.

Those China Roses and vegetables in the garden are growing well.

Sometimes, you can see several elderly people sitting under the pavilion for chat or strolling in the garden.

 

这里不是什么豪门大户

也并非供人小憩的度假之地

而是河南省开封市尉氏县东关教会蒙恩园老年公寓

It is neither a rich’s home nor a vacation place but Meng’en Elderly Home.

 

公寓中住着30多位高龄老人

90多岁的抗美援朝老兵经常气势十足的唱着

“雄赳赳,气昂昂,跨过鸭绿江……”

There are 30 people above 80-year-old living in Meng’en Home.

A veteran more than 90 years old often sings “stride over the Yalu River with high spirit”, full of momentum.

 

80多岁的杨弟兄退休前是位医生

他也选择在这里和老伴颐养天年

Brother Yang, more than 80 years old, was a doctor before retired.

He also chose to enjoy his life here with his wife.

 

该吃午饭了

今天是星期三

有蒸卤面和清汤

胃口好的老人一顿要吃两大碗

It’s time for lunch.

This elderly home provides noodles and vegetable soups for lunch on Wednesday.

Some aged people with good appetite can eat two bowls of noodles.

 

老年公寓的生活看起来既井然有序又宁静祥和

而这一切都得益于这样一群可爱的人:

她们都是来自尉氏县东关教会唱诗班的姊妹

The life here looks orderly and peaceful.

It benefited from contributions of a group of lovely people: sisters from the choirs of Dongguan Church.

 

自2016年老年公寓开办以来

她们便以兼职的身份为老人们服务

洗衣做饭、擦洗身体、聊天解闷……

她们像亲女儿一般陪伴在老人身边

每天4位护理员24小时全天候服务

They have been serving the elderly in a part-time position since the establishment of Meng’en Home in 2016.

Every day, there are 4 caregivers providing 24-hour service for the elderly people.

 

老人们的房间都配有中央空调

宽敞明亮、干净整洁

The old people's rooms are spacious and bright, clean and tidy, and equipped with central air conditioner.

 

而她们却为了便于照顾老人起居

在狭窄的楼梯间得一席休息之地

While these caregivers live in the narrow staircase, in order to taking care of the old people.

 

尽管护理员的工作既琐碎又辛苦

但她们依然甘之如饴

也不忘忙里偷闲

弹弹琴、唱唱歌

为老年公寓添几分欢声笑语

Even though this job is trivial and laborious, they enjoy it as if taking sugarplums.

Sometimes, they will play electronic keyboard and sing at break time.

The elderly home is filled with the sound of their laughter.

 

开办蒙恩园老年公寓的最初构想来自于东关教会的负责人

梅三妮姊妹

教会中留守老人、失能、半失能老人的增多让她意识到

创办一所低价、有爱的教会养老院的需求是多么的迫切

但创办养老院绝非易事

场地房屋、室内装修、设备添置、审批手续、人员配备……

每一项都会遇到各种各样的问题

The original idea of starting a elderly home came from Mei Sanni, the head of Dongguan Church.

Because of the increasing number of the left-behind, disabled and semi disabled elderly people in the church, Mei Sanni realized that it’s urgent to found a low-cost and loving church elderly home.

But this is not easy.

There will be a variety of problems in the course of its founding.

 

终于,在大家的共同努力和帮助下

她们从热心的开发商手中以市场价的一半购得了五套别墅

改建成了这所老年公寓

Finally, with the joint efforts, they bought five villas at half of the market price from the enthusiastic developer and rebuilt into this elderly home.

 

如今的蒙恩园老年公寓已渐渐步入正轨

但依然有很多需要做的事情

梅三妮姊妹说

对于未来

老年公寓的护理员姊妹们都充满着希望和干劲

她们会继续努力

让入住的老人们都能拥有一个舒心、舒适的晚年生活

Now Meng’en Home has been gradually on the right track.

But there are still many things to be done.

Sister Mei said that “we are full of hope for the future and will keep trying to provide a comfortable life for the elderly here in the future.”
