What Would We do Without Water? #hydration #health #elderlyissues #atozchallenge

Most of my clients don’t need to pump their own water though some are on well water.

Our View #elderlyissues #atozchallenge

As a caregivers we may have clear ideas of what our family member needs. After all in many cases we have known them our entire lives. “My father only likes tuna fish for lunch.

Uncovering Needs #elderlyissues #atozchallenge

The Letter L #atozchallenge #noir #fiction

  I slowly traced the letter “L” in the thick wool carpet. I left her blood stain to help me keep my edge. “Lily I can’t let go of this.
