Elsie and Mary Schwartz
One day she attended a support group where she met the staff of VIP who informed her of her options. Elsie started taking her mother Mary to VIP Mondays through Fridays, which freed her to tend to other family members. Mary liked it so much that she became a full time resident. From the start she liked to boss people around, and the staff let her play that role.
On her mother’s first day at VIP, she received a marriage proposal from another resident. Five years later, Mary is 94 ½ years old and still acting like the boss.
