Pima Council on Aging
Karen turned to Pima Council on Aging for help with her mother, who had suffered a stroke. She had made a promise to her mom that she would never put her in a nursing home. Karen would not have been able to provide round-the-clock care her mom needed without the breaks she was afforded through PCOA’s caregiver respite services. She was able to have a few hours, a couple of times a week, to take care of her own health and errands.
Karen says, “taking care of a dying parent is incredibly hard…and you were there. PCOA is an absolutely wonderful organization…a lifesaver.” She was able to fulfill her promise, thanks to Pima Council on Aging and the support of our community.
