My passion for caring for others began when I was in the 1st grade and my class and I started the \"Adopt-a-grandparent\" program. It paired school-aged children with seniors who have lost a loved one or just needed companionship. My \"grandparent\" was a lovely woman named Nora. After about 3 months of Bi-weekly visits, Nora began to suffer from rapid early on-stage dementia. She was forgetting things, including my name. She was so sweet and so scared and it made me want to do anything to help her. Her daughter eventually came and had Nora move with her to Michigan. I never saw her again.
