Tribute to Gorgi
Today was a downer – our first client with Stay Home Forever Inc., passed away. We had been trying to call her for over a week as her housekeeping service was due. She is usually quick to return calls and chat endlessly. She would call us even from the hospital and tell us to please meet her at her apartment the day she is released from hospital so we can assist her undress and get to bed and give her some food. She had no one. Briefly she said she had no contact with her children and her husband had passed away – she had 1 good friend in Toronto and that was it.
