Winner of RISE Sunday Contest is from Winnipeg

Saturday, March 05, 2016

On Feb. 21, my husband and I visited Simone Kornmayer who is in a long term care residence. She lost her husband two years ago and now has memory loss. She has no children but has friends like us who visit her from time to time. The RISE campaign motivated us to visit her sooner than later. In spite of her dementia, Simone recognized us and we spent two hours talking and going through her photo albums. She was very happy with our visit and we will do it again soon.
