“We hit the jackpot when Bob came into our lives!”
That was the first thing Shirley had to say about Bob, her ARCP volunteer. Bob visits with Shirley’s husband, Herman, who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. On their weekly visits they read the newspaper together from cover to cover and they laugh a lot. Shirley gets to take a break when Bob comes to visit, she usually goes to get her hair done or do some shopping.
Shirley says, Bob is just wonderful with Herman, she feels safe and has peace of mind when she leaves on her errands because she knows that Bob will take good care of Herman. He has become like family to The Kassells, they both look forward to seeing his smiling face each week at their door.
