Larry Bucheger


Organization: Larry at home


Why should this person be nominated? (What makes nominee unique; why should they be selected the winner of this category?
In between his handyman work, and looking for a new caregiver, Larry is at our home looking after my Mother who has Dementia and her best freind who recently came to live whith us. As soon as we met he remodelled my Mother's condo so we could rent it out in preparatin to move my Mom in with us. Larry always felt bad that his Mother was in a facility the last days of her life and would have loved to have taken care of her himself if he did not live almost 2,000 miles away. I was so fortunate to have his encouragement.

What is this nominee’s involvement in senior care or senior issues
The day we met our eyes locked and we knew...and so did my Mom because she was standing right there. He met her from day one and only a few months after he lost his mother in January of 2007. Larry encouraged me to take on the caregiver role for my Mother who was showing signs of Dementia but he was right there to help. Both of us in our 50's have always had Mom in our life and we have recently added my Godmother and my Mother's best freind to our home, and again, Larry is right there to help. From making his protein and fruit smoothies, to helping one of the ladies out of the tub, he is always there for us.
