Mr. Bill Higinbothom is LVA’s client spotlight for the month of December!
Mr. Higinbothom, a Lisa Vogel Agency client since 2017, and his primary caregiver, Aretha, have a wonderful relationship. In the 10 months Aretha has been with him, she has encouraged him to get involved with the activities at Brightview Towson. Bill and Aretha participate in karaoke twice a month, go to evening music programs, and play Bingo together. They also enjoy milkshake Mondays and happy hours at Brightview! Bill is very personable, has a quick wit and makes everyone smile.
Mr. Higinbothom grew up in the Guilford area of Baltimore. He was in the service and served in Korea for 2 years. He went to Haverford College and then to law school. When he graduated law school and passed the bar, he went into practice with his father, and his specialty was insurance law.
He was married to Suzanne, the love of his life, before her passing in 2017. They spent their honeymoon sailing on his 26 ft boat. Together, they enjoyed ballroom dancing, sailing and going to the police gun range to practice shooting. They enjoyed sailing places like St. Michaels, MD, where they would dock near a cove, walk around town, and spend quiet time on the water.
Bill’s second love was cars. He loved fast cars and loved to drive fast. Bill loved his green convertible Porsche. He always laughs while telling everyone that he would drive too fast for the police to catch him!
Margie, LVA’s RN and care coordinator, loves visiting with Bill, and although, he may not remember certain things, he has never forgotten her name. Bill’s greeting is always “Hi Margie, come on in!”
