Now program for seniors in limbo

Mariv Tesoro is trying to stay positive. Working as a registered nurse and program director for an Adult Day Health Care Center in Downey, where families bring their elderly relatives for health care and social activities during the workday, Tesoro works to help her patients as they face their inevitable mortality. Working with the sick and the dying, positive thoughts can be hard to come by. “It’s very fulfilling…you just have to try and hope you don’t go down with them, emotionally,” said Tesoro.
