Come Together

As told by Grace

I remember when I first hurt my hip…my boy got so worried. After I got out of the hospital, he had me stay with him and his family. I didn’t want to cause any trouble. He and my daughter took turns taking off time from work, even their kids would take me to the Doctor, or make sure I didn’t miss my physical therapy…but it was such a struggle. They all had to make sacrifices. Yes, yes, that’s what family’s for….but the stress– it’s too much. There was all this fighting… like walking on egg shells at the house…. I just wanted everyone to laugh and have good times like we used to. (pause) When Virginia, my CareGiver from Stellar, started coming to my house to help me get around some, and tidy up, get me walking a spell, life started to get better. My son and his family could go back to their normal lives, and I could get back to mine. Because of Stellar, I also have a companion I can count on. She even helps me make my famous Creamy Chicken Casserole, so my grandkids can come over—just to get away from their parents. (chuckle) Stellar, helps family come together.
