It is a pleasure to go there.

As the caretaker of my wife for a few years, I was looking for a place to be able to go where she would find a reason to laugh again and enjoy whatever time she has left. At no time did I imagine the joy that she would find there, and a new reason for living. She finds the love she needs, beside mine, and asks every day if we are going to ” the house ” Amy’s Place has created a new life for her. The atmosphere makes it easy to relax and enjoy being there. The people are great to deal with. It is a pleasure to go there.

“There are only four kinds of people in this world. Those who have been caregivers. Those who are currently caregivers. Those who will be caregivers. Those who will need caregivers.”

Amy Wynn Norman

Caring Together in Hope formed Amy’s Place with a grant from the American Endowment Fund, in honor of Amy Wynn Norman. Amy was a friend, accomplished businesswoman, and caregiver throughout her life. She knew of the struggles and isolation many caregiving families endure when caring for a loved one. Amy’s Place honors Amy, who placed a high value on caring for the caregiver.
