The Delaware Hospital for the Chronically Ill in Smyrna is asking community members to sponsor its residents for the holidays.

Since many tenants have little family involvement, the nursing home relies on the generosity of neighbors, local businesses and community organizations to fulfill wishes through the Adopt-a-Resident program.
