Trying to keep Patti ‘in touch’ is still important, I believe. Her care facility is of course critical. It represents safety, 24/7 attended care, regular and ongoing therapy, and three shifts of custodial care. Home care as a one person show cannot match that.
Yet home care is about ‘home’ and family and more. 2005 began with an outing to Patti’s parents’ home for traditional good luck pork dinner. A day with hopefully the best of both worlds for Patti.
