Going Home on Mother's Day

Posted: Updated:

HENDERSON, Nev. -- On Sunday, A man and his family wanted nothing more than to get his mom home for Mother's Day. She's been at the TLC Care Center in Henderson for two years. For health reasons she hasn't been able to take the trip out.

"My dad died at an early age in Vietnam in the late 60's. She's the one that took care of us and made us who we are today," said Mike Seifer.

Mike's mother Beverly raised him and his brother single handedly from the ages of 5 and 11. She sent them to college on a limited income and now loves to play with her grandchildren. They call and make regular visits, but say it's just not the same as having everyone under one roof.

"I visit my mother, I call my mother," said Beverly's youngest son Paul Seifer. "She's at the TLC Care Center so I try to call her 3 to 5 days a week."

Two years ago she fell, hit her head, and lost the ability to walk. Beverly needs special equipment or trained professionals to move her. She says leaving the center to see her family is out of the question, usually.

"Well it's not something that's within the realm of possibility, until today!" said Beverly.

Paramedics with community ambulance scooped Beverly up and transported her. They strapped her in and made sure she was safe. Waiting for her, was a hero's welcome.

"I don't know if I'd be the person I am today without her," said Mike. "She's my hero."

This was the second year TLC Care Center and Community Ambulance teamed up to take moms home for Mother's Day.
