When I called Charmaine to request some in-home help in caring for my husband, I was desperate. He needed round the clock supervision and I was still working. Charmaine came to my home, quite far from her home base, to assess the situation, ask me many questions and meet my husband. She was a calming presence and I felt immediately sure that this would work out well.
Three different Certified Nursing Assistants rotated in and out of my apartment for seven months, from October through April, caring for my husband while I was at work and overnight 4 nights a week. Each CNA brought her own special gift: one energy and encouragement, one humor and helpful suggestions, another youthful exuberance and a knack at kidding my husband into laughter! Charmaine chose excellent caregivers for our situation and when there were issues with scheduling or other wrinkles in the set up, she addressed them immediately. I never was left without a caregiver when I needed one.
One of the CNA’s was SO excellent and calm that I had her work a whole weekend while I went out of town to visit my granddaughters in Colorado. When I got home from the airport, I walked into the house, and the CNA had a lovely dinner on the table for us with a bouquet of fresh flowers too. That was a beautiful homecoming for me.
My husband eventually needed more complicated care and he moved into a nursing home in April of that year.
I would recommend Charmaine and “Always Best Care” to any family caregiver who needs a hand with caring for a loved one. My experience was excellent.
