Their conversations grew deeper and after a few weeks Ellen asked her to come out for some entertainment on the condition that Ellen would help her back to her apartment if it was too much for her. She stayed for the entire show! The next morning, this resident bravely came out for BINGO and ended up winning three prizes, she became a social butterfly and participated in daily activities.
