Caring at home

Caring at home

When care is provided at home there are great demands, but also rewards. The strength of family bonds are evident in this photograph of Maureen and Ross Fisher with their grandson, Aaron. Maureen and Ross raised Aaron from birth. When this photograph was taken in 2008 he was in his 20s.
