Mrs. Sanchez had been living at our community for some time. In fact, she had been just living for some time . . .
A highly respected and well-loved pharmacist in the town, Mr. Schultz had served his community for many years. After his retirement, however, he and his wife moved into our retirement community because he had developed dementia . . .
A resident of our assisted living community, he dressed in Hawaiian shirts every day, so they were immediately visible . . .
Older than his wife, he knew the odds were against him outliving her . . .
He made that very clear from the start. To everyone who cared to listen (which weren’t many) . . .
The son came into our community looking into a memory care apartment for his father. He and his brother were having challenges with him, he said. “What kind of challenges?” I asked . . .
With their backs against the wall and arms locked together, they edged along their narrow path—to no avail. . .
