Vera Calhoun-Russell, 104, looks out the window from her bed May 1, 2013 in her home in Villa Ridge, Ill. Vera’s bed sits less than ten feet from the place she was born. She has lived most of her life in the house, which her father built, and has helped raise many foster children there. Now, in her advanced age, she is the one being taken care of. Her youngest daughter, Janice Russell-Couch lives with and cares for her mother with the help of her husband, Allen Couch. Because of arthritis in her right knee, Russell has lost her mobility over the last 4 years. So, between Janice and Allen and part-time nursing care, they tend to all Vera’s needs.
