Quotes

Because of caregiving, I have been blessed with the opportunity to discover what really matters. I have been witness to personal transformation in the midst of suffering. I have seen the spirit of human kind shine bright, again and again, as families rise to the challenge and create positive change. These unexpected rewards, and so many more, come from the land of the not-yet-known, the terrain of long-term health care for the elderly. These gifts are the light in the darkness of caregiving.
