Lori - WOW!
Lori, with her can-do spirit, joined our family about two years ago and the experience couldn't have been better.
She came to us at a time when both my mother's Alzheimer's and my father's ALS were rapidly progressing.
For my mother, Lori was a kind and compassionate companion. She was able to keep her calm and engaged at times in conversion, in other instances listening to music, doing puzzles, or even out and about on craft supply runs.
For my father, Lori was a buddy and a good friend - swapping stories, cracking jokes and, always up for an adventure - of which there were many! As his mobility diminished, Lori, in spite of her bird-like frame, proved herself to be a highly able-bodied individual. She deftly moved my father - who was a larger man of 6ft - from wheelchair to pool, toilets, recliners, and to bed with great care.
I am filled with gratitude that she came into our lives and helped make our folk's last bit of time on this planet a joyous experience.
