Nikki you are a blessing.This day and time family members do not have the time of day for their loved ones.I work with "Dementia" residents every day and I love it, yes it is very stressful but if it is not us doing it then some would not even have a life......the smiles on their faces when I walk in,rewards me enough.....I know they look forward to seeing me.some will ask "where have you been" so I know they have missed me... Keep up the good work.....Lynn
