Guardian Story of the Month -- Barbara Earl
We do not remember days
We remember moments – Cesare Pavese
Joe can remember the winter snowshoe hike up Mt Colden in the Adirondacks. He recalls the mountain bike trip to Vermont and the many canoe excursions on Carnegie Lake in Princeton, Round Valley, South Branch of the Raritan. Joe and I have been friends since 1985. He moved to Clinton in 2010 and we seldom saw each other. In 2011 Joe’s world became confused. His diagnosis is dementia.
Rabbi Jaffe became his guardian and through him I was introduced to the Volunteer Guardianship One-On-One organization. Thank you so much Rabbi Jaffe for your compassion and dedication to the care of Joe.
In 2013 Rabbi Jaffe was kind enough to transfer guardianship to me. As guardian, I’m committed to overseeing that Joe’s quality of life needs are met. I am his voice for medical issues, living conditions and safety.
Joe enjoys reminiscing over the “good old days”, working on crossword puzzles and sitting outside on warm sunny days.
I’m blessed that I can be there for Joe.
