104 Year-Old-Woman Lovingly Cares For Her 86-Year-Old Daughter

104 Year-Old-Woman Lovingly Cares For Her 86-Year-Old Daughter

Once a mom, always a mom. Rosario Schielzeth, who just turned 104, and her daughter Maria Garcia, 86, have been inseparable for most of their lives. They began living together 60 years ago, when Maria and her husband divorced and she needed help caring for her two young sons. 

Schielzeth, a great-great-great-grandmother, is in exceptionally good health. Garcia suffers from dementia, but is in high spirits. She is warmly cared for by her mother and two full-time caregivers. Schielzeth reads the paper every morning and tells Garcia about current events. When Garcia had a stroke a while ago, Schielzeth insisted she recuperate at home and cooked for her until she recovered her strength. 

"I take care of her and she takes care of me, too," Schielzeth says. Adds Garcia, "We help each other."
