MEMORY CARE OF NAPLES DIRECTOR, TINA BROWNING, TALKS ABOUT THE POWER OF MARRIAGE

My husband and I were very young when we were married on a warm, late-August day. It was a traditional wedding, complete with a big white dress and a huge celebration with our families in small-town Ohio. More than 25 years later, it’s fun to look back on those memories and think about how we have grown. We have certainly come a long way from the two young kids taking a chance on one another. My 15 years spent in older adult care has shown me the power in spousal relationships, even my own marriage. Having been at Memory Care of Naples since this past January, I have seen the immense challenges and heartbreak that spouses go through when they are burned out as a caregiver. No one can fulfill that caregiver role 24/7, but that’s where we come in. Every day, our staff cares for your loved one so you can get back to being their loving spouse.

Our resident immediately lit up at the sight of his wife, and he held her hand throughout the entire meal. It was a reunion just months in the making, but when you have built a life together, any time apart is heartbreaking.
