Donna – Rocky Ford, CO

Donna, of Rocky Ford, CO, shares her story of her husband’s head injury.  She talks about how difficult it was to put him in an assisted living home, and about the importance of patient knowledge.  She recognizes that in the current health care system, good doctors are over worked and it is often up to the patient to ensure proper care is being provided.

“I noticed his personality starting to change.  He’s a big man, very loving, very tender.  All of the sudden he started being angry and I became fearful of him, which I had never been before.”
