Jean has been a client for 9 months (8/2015) and is a pleasure to work with. She was diagnosed with multiple system atrophy and has been losing her physical abilities. Her husband is a wonderful caregiver who keeps her focused on the present and makes sure she lives life to the fullest each and every day.
Her goal is to be able to read independently. When we first started working with her, she was able to read text on a 40-inch TV. Her eyesight no longer allows her to do this, so we have enabled her to listen to books using the Audible app and a switch to start and stop the book. At this time, she has read/listened to over 6 books! We will make sure she can enjoy books for as long as possible.
Update: Jean passed away in August 2016. In the video below, Dick (her husband) talks about caregiving for Jean.
