Do you have a parent or grandparent in a nursing home? Are you ready to bring your child to see them? Join Luca Lashes as he visits his great grandmother, plays some games, and has a great time visiting! This is a multilingual (Chinese, English, French, Italian, and Spanish), educational, interactive, audio app that continues the Luca Lashes series about children experiencing their “firsts”.

This app is the 7th in our series, as Luca, the brown-eyed boy with the magical eyelashes, gets ready to and visits his great grandmother in a nursing home, where she has just recently moved in. Children can experience the sights and sounds of a nursing home while touching different interactive areas on the screen to fully appreciate their surroundings. The story also includes some parental suggestions to help parents take the newness and anxiety out of this situation.
