(WDAY TV) - A gift from a local hotel is helping a New York woman spend the holidays with her mother. Virginia Johnson is visiting her mother, who has advancing Alzheimer’s, in Bethany Homes.

Johnson is one of the people taking advantage of a Christmas deal offered by the Settle Inn. People who are visiting loved ones in the hospital, Hospice, or a senior care facility can stay at the hotel for free tonight and tomorrow.

Johnson says it makes her time here much more relaxed, so she can spend quality time with her mom.

"Then I can have dinner with her tonight and dinner with her tomorrow, and not have to drive very far, and spend this time with her during the holidays."

Johnson says the free stay is especially nice, considering the snowy weather this weekend.
