When Dick Mize realized he wouldn’t be able to give his wife, Ann, the care she deserves as she continues to suffer from Alzheimer’s, he looked around for a place near their home in Anchorage, Alaska.
But when he couldn’t find anything he was comfortable with, Dick, 83, started to look in Grand Junction, where he and Ann, 72, had a condo they visited a few times each year.
Now, Dick lives in his condo in the Westwood Estates, near Cappella of Grand Junction, where Ann resides in the memory support neighborhood, after moving a few months ago.
On Thursday, the couple had some company as they visited. In addition to spending time with other couples in the memory care wing, more caregivers and loved ones from the community came to Cappella for a Memory Cafe, which Cappella began hosting late last year.
