For the last 2 ½ years we’ve had the pleasure of helping in Belva’s care. Prior to a stroke Belva had, she liked to do embroidery, go camping and grow many different kinds of flowers in her garden. She liked to can and preserve fruits and vegetables. She also liked to read and do crossword puzzles. Belva struggles with losing her independence and is now a total assist. She really enjoys it when family comes to visit. She loves to watch the hummingbirds fly in to drink from the feeder hanging by her patio door.
