Actor Henry Winkler, The Charming Fonzie, Was His Mom's Caregiver For Years
Taking care of our parents is our duty and obligation. For the famous actor, Henry Winkler, it was his mom who needed his attention. The lovable Fonzie stepped up to the task and showed the world what a great son does for his mom.
Caretaker for his mother
Winkler's mother suffered a stroke in 1989. Unfortunately, as a result of the stroke, the actor's mother also suffered a condition called upper limb spasticity. This terrible condition is frequent with stroke victims and it makes the muscles on hands and arms to contract. The use of the clenched arm is no longer possible so the patients require another person to take care of them.
