Senior Concerns Gives Caregivers In Conejo A Day To Themselves
Jennifer Weir was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer a year before her mother had a stroke that paralyzed the left side of her body. “I was her caregiver," Weir said. "She couldn’t care for herself.” She could feed herself, and she could communicate, Weir said, but that was about it. So for five years, Weir’s mother lived with Weir and her family in their Thousand Oaks home. Weir's mother died in December, two weeks after her 90th birthday. (Doyle, 3/4)
