Comments from Nancy, our former Aide—

“How well I remember the wonderful smiles your mom would give when I played guitar for her or made a doll with her present. The love and caring you showed by everything you did for her. I still use my overnight bag and think of her while hooking! ( I cried through most of this video) thanks to you for sharing the Oakes love.”

One thought on “Blogs, Books and Articles”

  1. “Your Home, Your Castle” is a monumentally thought-provoking book revolving around life affirming/enhancing experiences that bring joy, comfort and happiness in a place that everyone want to be–their own home. It is masterfully written with compassion and an excellent resource guide. I found this book to be incredibly relevant as our society ages and we evaluate options and resources. I highly recommend this book for caregivers, families and health care professionals.
