“Katharine Few is a Nurse Practitioner at Prisma Health’s Center for Success in Aging. She was a lifeline for my family as we struggled to cope with my dad’s dementia and care for him at home. She was there for us every step of the way during our several year journey (which ended a few weeks ago), and her kindness, compassion, guidance and support are gifts that we will never be able to thank her for enough!” – from GVL Today
