The deterioration of a parent is a difficult thing that many children must face. My mother and role model, Janet Jurgielewicz, has taken on an integral role in caring for her father, Mario Scopinich. Discarding the role of a child and redefining the role of mother and caregiver, Janet has entered an ambiguous new sphere. Alongside her family, she reflects on hardships, difficult conversations and relishing time.
