Deane, like you I have witnessed great involvement with staff members at memory care facilities, and the staff at these facilities deserve a medal the size of a frying pan. Many have worked there for more than a decade and some even had relatives at the same facility where they worked.
Also, like you, I have lost a lot of my vision over the past few months, however, mine is from dry macular degeneration, of which there is no treatment or cure. I am slowly going blind and just hoping that I can make it another year before totally losing my eyesight. I will be seeing the eye doc in the next week to determine if there is a way to slow the process of the disease. (fingers crossed!)
Good to see you are still working, old friend,
