By just looking at this picture, you can tell that JoJo and Amber have a special relationship and have fun together. They’ve been a pair for two-and-a-half years and have enjoyed every minute of it. JoJo says that SYNERGY HomeCare “caregivers have been wonderful, especially Amber. She always seems to know what I need; she’s always there for me.” Amber loves that JoJo has a great sense of humor and has a zest for life. JoJo lives in a retirement community in Oro Valley. She and Amber enjoy the daily activities like chair volleyball, cards, bean bag baseball, and crafting like making witch hats for Halloween.
Amber says that JoJo feels like a mom and a grandmother to her. She appreciates her outlook on life. They take regular walks around the community and JoJo will constantly point out the beauty of the clouds, mountains, flowers, and birds. Amber said that JoJo had thrown up in her car one day. She cleaned it up, but some evidence still remains. They laugh about it when they’re in her car, “you’ve left your mark on me and my car”.
JoJo moved to Tucson to be with her twin sister who has since passed away. She is grateful to have Amber to grieve and share memories. Prior to retiring, she spent twenty years as an x-ray technologist, and then a jail deputy. She loved both jobs. Being a jail deputy allowed her to serve others in need, and it reminded her of how fortunate her life has been. It is hard to imagine JoJo as a jail deputy because she really is a sweetheart.
