Happy New Year to all of our clients, families, and professional partners.  We hope each of you had a meaningful time celebrating the holiday season with family.  However, we need to keep in mind not everyone has the opportunity to spend the holidays with family.  Our elder care law offices works with several clients who are considered “unsupported elders”, meaning they generally do not have local immediate family to assist them.  Unfortunately, one of our clients in such a situation was transitioned to in-patient hospice on December 23, 2019.  Our client has one daughter who lives on the West Coast.  Over the past eight years, our office, particularly Jacinda Graham, our Client Services Director, has become a surrogate family to this client.  Although our office is officially closed the week of Christmas through New Year’s Day, Jacinda Graham, spent several hours each day during the holiday week at our client’s bedside because no one should ever die alone.  We come into this life with the help of another human being, and we should leave this life in the company of a human being.  Thank you Jacinda for all you do.  You set a shining example for all of us to follow.
