Lasting Touch

For nearly ten years, Jean-François visited his widowed and unwell mother every other week to ensure her comfort. Regularly, he invited her to come and live with him. Each time Lise, his mother, kindly refused, saying she was not ready. Finally, one spring day, she called and asked: "Is the offer still good?"

Not long after that life-changing conversation began a journey of joy, challenges, sadness, and discovery.

Through the good times and the challenging times, both learned the importance of communication, listening, and the high importance that elderly parents put on independence, dignity, respect, and comfort
