What is this nominee’s involvement in senior care or senior issues
Roy treats all of his patients with dignity and respect -- getting to personally know who his patients are and what is motivating for them. He will go out of his way to do small things for his patients such as: change the batteries in his patient's cherished singing plush animal; repairing his patient's glasses, thus saving an outside trip to the optometrist; making a small bouquet of flowers when it's his patient's birthday and singing to them; singing religious songs in Latin to those who share his faith; fabricates his own devices to assist patients with reaching their goals. The list could go on and on but this is just a snapshot of the magic tht Roy performs with his patients!
