Cecil from Florida

My mother means the world to me. I am sharing this story in honor of my mother. My mother's name is Bianca. She has been there for me and my children and the past couple years it was my time to take care of her. She suffers from Dementia and can't remember to do certain things. She barely remembers who I am sometimes. I haven't had to endure a ton of medical situations but I can not imagine what other people go through. Seeing her everyday while I have a full-time job is hard. We have to make sure someone is with her at all times because she can simply leave the house and forget who and where she is. I am so grateful to have the nurses we have.
