Eleanore Lomperski, a 96-year-old resident at Life Care Center of Winter Haven, is proud that her artwork is now being sent around the country on the front of hundreds of Christmas cards.
Each year, parent company Life Care Centers of America invites residents in more than 200 nursing and rehab facilities to submit Christmas card designs, and one piece is chosen for each of the organization’s geographical divisions. A total of eight designs are printed and distributed to facilities and regional offices throughout Life Care.
Lomperski’s colored pencil drawing of three snowmen is this year’s winner for Life Care’s centers in Florida. When she found out she won, she was so happy that she cried.
“I have worked so hard all year on cards,” said Lomperski. “I really wanted to win.”
Lomperski only took up art after she moved to Life Care Center of Winter Haven in 2014. She enjoys taking part in the Christmas card contest each year and draws birthday cards for her family members.
