Caring for those with Alzheimer’s has its ups and downs. There are moments when the person you are caring for cannot remember where they are or what year it is.There are also moments of pure kindness and thoughtfulness from your loved one. Those are the moments you look forward to. The moments that remind you, the caregiver, that your loved one is still there. It is these special moments that fill the hearts of our staff full of joy. For the caregivers and manager at AutumnGrove Cottage Blanco, they experienced one of these sweet moments with a kind-hearted note from one resident in particular, Willie. Mr. Willie, as he is known in the cottage, loves each and every staff member and genuinely cares for all of them. He loves to bring a smile to everyone’s face and does so with his kind and honest words. This past weekend, Mr. Willie enlisted the help of an AutumnGrove staff member to write a caring note to express his feelings about Blanco Cottage. A sweet note from a sweet man made for a moment that we could never forget. Thanks Mr. Willie!
