My father Angelo Caruso - was dignosed with advanced dementia in 2002 and he lived to age 92. In 1997 he went to live in an assisted living home in Pennsauken, NJ called 'The Fountains'. I was unable to visit him on the weekdays but my role as a daughter was covered by the care of his visitor from Samaritan Hospice. The man who visited with my Dad in the last months of my Dad's life would talk with him about old times in the Italian neighborhoods which my father knew well. At the end of his life, my father grew unresponsive but the man from Samaritan Hospice sat with him and spoke with him anyway. I can't ever thank Samaritan Hospice and their visitor enough for covering for me while I was at work to earn a living. Thanks! Carol Caruso Caruthers
