This is a photo of my latest Alzheimer Priority Quilt. I have dedicated it to Ada M. Richard, RN.
Mrs. Richard graduated from Nursing in the mid 1930's and worked her whole life. When she no longer could live at home she was admitted to a facility that had a dementia/Alzheimer Unit. One afternoon she called her daughter-in-law and stated she was sitting at the nurses station where she had interviewed for a job and was going to accept the position. She was well over 80 years old at the time.....she had a new beginning.
