In signing-up for services with Home Care Assistance, her request was to have good home cooked meals and to be able to dance. We assigned a younger caregiver, named Stephanie, whose grandfather also had Parkinson’s and was very familiar with the disease. Nancy started teaching Stephanie how to cook the gourmet meals she most enjoyed, and after each meal was prepared they’d take photos of the finished dish. Cooking with Stephanie really lifted Nancy’s spirits, as she was now eating the gourmet meals she had been craving. On top of that, she now had purpose and a renewed spirit. Stephanie not only enjoyed to cook, but also loved to dance. Together, they’d dance, laugh and enjoy each other’s company. Through this companionship Nancy is now living a happier life filled with purpose because she has been able to pass down her cooking skills to a younger generation--this comes at a time when she thought it was impossible for her to help someone else, so it is especially meaningful to Nancy! 11
