A friend wrote this to me once: “The day I found my mom lying on the floor, unable to move, I knew it was time to get some help for her. She wasn’t ready to move out of her home, and aside from adding some safety bars and other features, I wasn’t sure how to help her but we both agreed that we would BOTH feel safer if someone was checking in on her and helping her with a few things, 2 or 3 times a week.”
