Alissa watches for signs of physical and mental changes in your loved one. Recognizing differences early and being ready with a plan are the best ways to avoid crises and ensure top care.

though in another dress,
And as the evening

The sky is filled with stars,
invisible by day

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
