“The help from the Home was a true miracle.  We did not know what we were going to do as Mom’s situation changed so suddenly.  Mom’s injury was a really hard time for her and for the family.  The help from the Home was a lifesaver.  It was such a shock that after such a hard time, good things started to happen.”
