As temperatures are dropping and the holidays are approaching, we could all use a little reminder about a few things to help keep safe this winter.
My home care client, Christopher, lost his father, Charlie, a few months ago, and since then a lot has changed. For Christopher, change isn’t always the easiest to cope with. Thank goodness he has a good team & family to help him through it. We also took care of Charlie until his passing. My client hasn't said much about his feelings since.
I looked around at the other clients of the program. Of course, I am searching for those that are, "worse off" in abilities and trying to assuage my hesitancy about this situation. I see a very young lady, possibly middle to late teens, controlling her motorized wheelchair over into the mounting area near a horse. She's very slight of build with long braids. I can hear her bantering in a small but excited voice with the therapy instructors.

The historic Fire Station No. 1 building still standing today at 13 Church Ave SE in downtown Roanoke was built in 1907. Modeled after Philadelphia's Independence Hall, Fire Station No. 1 is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and served as one of Virginia's longest continuously operating fire stations until its replacement began operating in 2007.
