Nearly two years ago, Mr. Rocky, a 57 year old male was hospitalized for pneumonia and was placed on a ventilator. He requires total care in all his life activities. He then transferred to a nursing facility for a year and a half. Although Mr. Rocky was blessed with a supportive family who visited frequently, as the days grew into months and years, Mr. Rocky missed waking up with his family around him and longed to return home.
