Some friends become family
In this episode, Rina shares wisdom from decades of experience supporting a close friend whose physical and cognitive function is changing. She keeps things grounded as she narrates the specific and creative ways she contributes to her friend’s quality of life. When it comes down to it, Rina’s story is about treating others as we’d like to be treated, and about prioritizing the seemingly small yet very important things that mean so much to quality of life.
