Helen used to live in New York city. Once a prominent dancer and regional director for a famous studio, she soon retired to California after suffering a catastrophic foot injury. She is 90 years old and sits in a wheel chair.
Besides her immobility and mild cognitive impairment, she suffers immensely by living alone in her beautiful large home in Los Angeles. She has a caregiver during the day to help her get around, but she is becoming more unhappy, impatient, and difficult.
What Helen really needed was someone to value her experiences and do things together.
