Jennifer’s Story

When I was 10 my grandmother had a brain aneurysm, while she was lucky enough to recover she was never quiet the same. Over the years she had a series of strokes, dementia and eventually became bed bound. I remember the struggle my mother faced finding the right care to keep my grandmother in our home. Her dementia often made her combative and afraid of nurses and caregivers because she would relive her past experience as a hostage at a bank robbery in which she was badly slashed and left for dead. Finding the right care was so important to keeping her end of life dignified and helping our family cope with the challenges of her illness. This is my why, this is why I decided to work in healthcare.
