But sadly, this wasn’t how the story ended. A week after that discussion, Daniel took a turn and passed away. It broke our hearts to hear the news. It was so difficult to see his wife that night. Though she was in grief, Barbara was relieved to know Daniel was now free from suffering and told us again and again how grateful she was for everything Home Care Assistance did for her family. When the family slideshow played during the funeral, we did not recognize the 260 pound man in all of the family photos. It was only when they showed the photos of him as a young officer that we saw the young man who we had the honor of meeting 60 years later. The same expressive eyebrows, the thin gaunt face and a slight smile on his lips. Daniel transformed before our eyes, but was living proof to the miracles a caring team with 24/7 attention could achieve. I can only imagine what we would have seen had he lived another couple of weeks or months. For Barbara and the children, they’d already said their goodbyes to Daniel ten years prior. Alzheimer’s took from them a brilliant mind, the clever wit and the fierce competitor who loved to serve an Ace to an unsuspecting opponent at a tennis match. For our care team, it was a short relationship, but one that we will never forget. We’ll never doubt the difference we each can make in the lives of the seniors we are so honored to serve.
