Home / Opportunities / Gyumri Nursing House Residents / Adrine Muradyan
Muradyan, is 48 years old, disabled from birth, fastened to a wheelchair.
The Gumri Nursing House has been home for most of her life, 27 years she
is here. She is pleased to be surrounded with caring and loving people.
Regardless of her disability, Adrine is full of energy and enthusiasm. She
likes to mother her roommates and sisters. She likes to be helpful and
finds strength in preserving canned fruit and vegetables. She remembers
her mum doing a lot of canning. More importantly, she wants to be helpful
member of the Nursing home community.
After her motherís death, her father took care of her, but sadly, that did
not last long. Adrine was lonely although she had two brothers. Her
fatherís death was hard on her. Due to her disability, Adrine didnít
attend school, but her father made sure that teachers gave her private
classes and taught her basic skills of writing and reading. Thus, thanks
to fatherís foresighted decision and his careful attitude now she is able
to read books. Soon she asked them to take her to an orphanage or even a
Nursing home: it was a painful decision but she thought that would be best
for all of them.
She hasnít seen her brothers for 35 years now but doesnít carry hard
feelings and also, all these years she has been with her family of many
sisters and brothers and that is what counts, she thinks. Also, her
greatest happiness is that she is able to read the Bible, her closest
friend, adviser and everything else.
