Bill and Marilyn were thrilled when Bill's employer offered an opportunity for promotion which included re-locating to company headquarters in Arizona. Along with their joy over Bill's success came some concerns about how to manage the move with Bill's mother, Harriet, who had been living with the family since her diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease.
Marilyn was especially worried that the process of traveling to locate a new house, packing the family's 3 children and 2 pets, transporting across country and re-organizing in the new home would be overwhelming and confusing for Harriet.
Marilyn's worries were eased when she contacted Crandall Medical Center to arrange Respite Care Services for Harriett until the family was settled in their new Arizona home.
