Anna spent a lot of time at Care Partners during the week so Sue could work. She had two wonderful caregivers Stacy Gaudette and Linda Hobb who helped with her care at home. She had lived with her caretaker Diane Beauguard for one year before that.  We were very fortunate in 2014, Kings Daughter’s received mom as a tenant at their beautiful home for ladies.  This is where mom had the best care after living with Sue.  She absolutely loved it there.
