Geoff from Indiana

Hello! This is my grandmother Lucila from Indiana. I moved in with her a year ago because the have diagnosed her with late stage dementia. I am the only grandson that is capable of caring for her in terms of giving her a care that she need since I work as a certified nurse. I love to help my patients and take care of my grandmother.

We caught her dementia too late so now it’s progressing quickly. I know it’s a challenging road to travel for all of us, but knowing what to expect can hep to ease some of the stress and uncertainty. We love grandmom so much!
