Positive Stories

Photo of Joan“Debbie – thank you so much for all the time and patience and care you invested in the visit with Mom and me this morning.  We LOVE Joan – love her!  She was just the perfect match – she is patient and kind and strong and her eyes smile over her mask, and she handled mom’s fears and tendency to be compulsive with gentle persistence and good humor. Thank you.  What a lovely beginning to this new chapter and the perfect ambassador for all care givers so that Mom will be open to what’s ahead.  Mom knows Joan will be weekends and Candace will be with her starting Monday.  We look forward to Joan again tomorrow.”

“Joan had some great observations today, and tomorrow Mom is ready to begin her own physical therapy work with more walking and time outdoors.  Thank you Debbie.  What is a scary time in our lives has been made much less so.” -AT

When there is a change in a client’s health, whether it is due to an accident or a medical issue that has been diagnosed, there can be fear and anxiety. Our Director of Client Services and Sales, Debbie Perkins, believes the most compassionate approach with our clients and their families is to have the heart of a servant. This sincerity helps to dispel any trepidation. She spends time with our clients and their family members, listening patiently and paying attention to small details. This investment of her time was recently the focus of deep appreciation from the family of one of our clients.

I could not ask for a better option than these two ladies.” -JH

Caregiving can be difficult and challenging; it requires genuine commitment, as well as the heart of the caregiver. It is the love of our caregivers that makes the difference in our clients’ lives. Their nurturing, kind hearts bring light into what might be dark, difficult circumstances. Recently, a family member reached out to us to express their gratitude for our caregivers Ebony and Joanie. We want to take this opportunity to proudly recognize them. Our caregivers are the best!
