Social Worker Darby Morhardt describes her motivation to care for patients with dementia and families caring for her patients.
I think what inspires me most are the people that I come into contact on a daily basis who tell me their stories of how this disease is affecting them, and I have worked with an amazing group of people over the years who have taught me so much on how they, as a family, are living and coping with this illness or illnesses, and I am inspired by their stories and their resilience and their courage.
