In Focus: Date with Dominik

I spent part of the morning and much of the afternoon Tuesday with Dominik Barca, who is 84.

Dominik has been cared for by his only child, Debbie Bozedowski, since his diagnosis of dementia four years ago. We had a great talk about his days as a truck driver and how he grew up on a farm where chickens were in the house, but the dogs were kept outside.

Dominik had a real twinkle in his eye as he told me his stories.
