Promise-Star (2)Caroline Tysseland, Adult Day Coordinator

This PROMISE Star comes from the daughter of an Adult Day participant and is a wonderful testament to Caroline.  According to the daughter she has never met anyone as professional, caring, and flexible as Caroline!  She and her family are grateful to her for all the special efforts goes through to get their Dad to the Harvard Club.  Their Dad is not a morning person and has been more depressed recently because he can no longer drive.  Most days he is not sure he wants to go to the Harvard Club, but when he does he raves about all the fun he had.  He particularly loves Caroline’s energy and enthusiasm and the variety of things provided for him to do.  On the other hand, he occasionally calls it the “Funny Farm”.  So, the family knows they’re not fooling him about the fact that it is an adult day center.  He is in that awkward stage of Alzheimer’s where sometimes he can think logically and sometimes he can’t.  The family never knows when he is going to drift from one phase to the other. Caroline’s personal interest in him has made him feel valued and useful again.  The daughter also said “she understands Caroline and other drivers take her Dad home and pick him up – what a precious gift you are”!
