24 Pounds and Counting

By: Leah Rybak, Marketing and Public Relations Coordinator

Brice is a 90 year old man who lives alone. Three years ago, he had a stroke and lost 50 pounds. He is one very determined man; fighting prostate cancer and fighting to stay in his home for as long as possible.

Carl is a Personal Care Provider for Seniors’ Resource Center. He goes to visit and take care of Brice giving hope and encouragement four days a week. Carl’s goal is for Brice to get better; physically and emotionally.

Ever since Carl has visited Brice, Brice has regained a lot of his strength and has gained over 24 pounds. He awaits his 91st birthday in good health and spirit; in great part due to Carl’s enthusiastic and caring visits.

“I’m amazed at what he can do for himself, but when Brice needs me, I come anytime 7 days a week,” said Carl. “I do whatever it takes to keep him in his home.”

And, that is also the goal of Seniors’ Resource Center: to do whatever it takes to keep seniors in their home.
