Kris has been living with a Parkinson's diagnosis for approximately 7 years.  For most of that time Kris has lived a full life without severe complications from the disease. In the last 9 months, however, there's been a significant decline in Kris's condition. Kris is now wheelchair-bound and unable to take care of herself independently. As such, she moved into an enhanced care unit at Highview Hills, an Assisted Living facility in Lakeville, this past February. Here she receives around-the-clock care and help with everyday tasks such as bathing and dressing. Steve, her husband, lives in an apartment one floor below and spends most of each day with her in her room.

Due to her continued decline and under the advisement of her primary doctor and neurologist, Kris recently entered hospice care.  She is able to stay in her room at Highview Hills and is seen almost daily by someone on her wonderful hospice team.  We are grateful for the compassionate care she is receiving and are striving to make each day count.
