In the winter of 2007, my mother was diagnosed with MS. She took it extra hard physically because she was already paralyzed from a car wreck years ago. She lived in a nursing home for quite a while, but when she came back home, she needed extra care. I came to see first hand how the home healthcare business works. When someone is unable to take care for themselves, they need professional help to come to their house and care for them.

This career is EP compatible, as well as compatible with the base game. This career will not overwrite any custom or Maxis careers because it has it's own GUID. There are 8 chance cards completed with this career. This career has been spelling and grammar checked with Micorsoft Works Spelling and Grammar Checker. The career reward for this career is Maxis' Surgical Dummy. After several months of tweaking, I finally have something I'm proud to share with mts.

Here is an example of a chance card:
