"Patricia King, Owner of For the One You Love, has worked with my mother on a two to three times a week basis for well over one year now.  My mother lives at Hilltop House due to her inability to cope on her own at home.  She has been diagnosed with vascular dementia.  I am her daughter and live far away so I can not be there very often for my mother."
