Ms. Rome and Amy have developed a special bond.
When Amy makes her daily visit, they really do carry on like old friends. Amy fixes lunch and tidies up while Rome's husband Art is free to get out of the house and do those things that allow any family caregiver the opportunity to maintain their own personal care.
This is so important. Family caregivers must have a way to look after themselves while still caring for their loved one.
"I love her because she treats me like I've been her friend her whole life. She's real with me. I love her and Brown Dog to pieces"
