Jennifer from Iowa

I've been taking care of my buddy Richard who has Alzheimers for three years now. What an amazing man, who is slowly loosing his ability to care for himself. That's why I do what I do, I love to see them continue to live to the fullest as longs as possible. To see the happiness on their faces is amazing!!!! Fills my heart.
