TESTIMONIALS  

 

  • "Your organization provided care for my mother. I just wanted to let you know how much we, as her family, appreciated the love and care she was given by all the members of her care team. For her last 3-4 weeks of life, we were there in her room almost all the time helping to feed her, turn and position her and to help take care of her. My mom loved Belinda, her aide. I watched Belinda care for my mom with a great deal of knowledge, experience, and compassion. Her primary nurse was Caroline and she was always professional, kind and caring. I'm sure that since both myself and my daughter are also nurses that we tried her patience at times, but she was always receptive to our needs and ideas. These excellent staff members were joined by Mark, the chaplain. I know my mom found comfort in his words and prayers, I certainly did as well. These people helped us in so many ways to make my mom's last days more comfortable, both physically and spiritually. I cannot thank them adequately for all the care and support they gave to us as well as to my mom. They endured our endless stories and ‘remembering’ fun times from my mom's and my dear dad's life. We came to enjoy and appreciate each of them. I hope you are very proud of them. They are a wonderful representation of your company. Thank you for sending them to us."

    "I still think very fondly of all the people there. My mother was with you fine people. The fine care all of your people gave her and the support was so wonderful. When we finally lost her, the care you gave both her remains and myself was just fantastic. I was a mess when it happened and kept thinking I did not do enough to keep her going. Your kind words helped me feel a little better knowing I could not have done any more then I did. I will admit I still sometimes wonder if I did not do this or that maybe I could have had her stay with us a little while longer. Anyway, I just needed to let you angels know I still think so fondly of everyone there."

    "I would like to express my appreciation for the wonderful service I received when I was in need of your assistance. Friday, June 15th, I needed to have someone to stay with my mother, who had a mild stroke. I felt it was best that someone other than a worried, overprotective daughter watch over her. I contacted your agency and Char got me in touch with Linda who had a care giver in Mom's home within hours. Colleen Carr was wonderful. She was professional, personable, fun and kind. She kept me well informed and Mom grew very fond of her. Since Colleen could only stay two days, she was replaced by Dawn Hoar. I had some concerns that at 90, and having just had a stroke, the change might be disturbing for Mom. Dawn came in with the understanding that she needed to tread lightly and within a few minutes had made friends with Mom and all went well. She had all the same qualities as Colleen and Mom liked her as much. All the employees I dealt with went out of their way to make this difficult time as comfortable as possible for us. I would like to commend and thank them all. I would especially appreciate it if a copy of this note would be placed in Dawn and Colleen's files. Thanks,"
