After the 2013 holiday, JuliAnne encouraged the sisters to visit their brother more often; each was able to make an additional trip during the year. These visits presented opportunities to involve family and friends living nearby to expand Norman’s social calendar. The sisters were able to evaluate where professional help might be needed.
