KINGSTON, Okla. -- It's time for a makeover at the Family Care Center of Kingston.

The nursing home wants to make upgrades all around the property, and the exterior is their first focus.

Administrator Rachel Weaver said they'd like to add "some nicer furniture so that when family and residents want to come outside, they have something decent to sit on, more like a home."

But she said the facility's budget isn't big enough to fund some of the desired renovations like new furniture and fresh paint.

"A lot of things that we do get are from donations," Weaver said. "We don't have any extra funding coming in, so we have to really budget well."

Connie Laxton is a volunteer at the Family Care Center, and she's already made her fair share of donations.

"My mother's lived here about 12 years, and this is her home," she said. "It'll be her last home, and I want it to be nice."

Once the exterior is spruced up, Weaver said her plan is to make changes on the inside, one room at a time. They are updates that will mean the world to residents.

"We have TVs and couches and stuff like that at our house; we want them to have nice floors, nice walls, nice decorations, too," she said.

To contribute, you can stop by the Family Care Center at 701 Highway 32, or give them a call at 580-564-2216.
