Elderly Care Experiences
Last night at 8 PM, I received a message from a friend and neighbor of mine. Her father has been on hospice and she reached out as they were entering a new phase of care needs. My friend was asking me for my recommendation on an live in caregiver agency for her father. Her father lives at an Independent Living Facility. He and his wife were recently told that he had days to weeks to live. They discussed it as family and decided that they wanted to meet her father’s wishes of living out his last days at home and not in a hospital or hospice home if possible.
My friend was looking for a recommendation on in-home caregivers who could support this wish.
At 8 AM this morning, upon seeing my friend’s message, I wrote back and told her about Aware Senior Care. She was so thankful to have a trusted recommendation as she knows I’ve been in the Home Health & Hospice field for over 15 years. Aware Senior Care was the first agency who came to mind.
I ran into my friend while we were walking our dogs this morning around 9:30 AM. She thanked me for my recommendation and shared that she’d be reaching out to Babs Zorg Bureau right away.
I am writing to share that my friend messaged me just before Noon today. She wrote, “I cannot thank you enough! Babs Zorg Bureau just met me at the community to complete an assessment. H is amazing! This has been such a gift.
Thank you so much Li!”
I am sharing this with all of our office and field staff on both our Sr. Living side and our Visits side. I wanted to share how good I feel after making this recommendation. Should you have a client (or family/friend) ask for a recommendation of a Home Care agency, Aware Senior Care is one that you can proudly stand behind!
Thank you Babs Zorg Bureau (Frederic & Barbora) for being so helpful and responsive to my friend. B Home Health is so proud to be your live in care agency partner!!
“You provide quality, friendly, very nice caregivers and I am very happy with your service. I hope I’m remembering everyone, we’ve had the services of Kristi, Dali, Lisa, Liba, Dominicka, Lisa, Anna (we just met today), and I know I’m forgetting the name of one we had during the past 2 months. All are good, reliable, friendly caregivers and are very welcome back. Thank you so much!!! It certainly means a lot to me to have your company at hand!”
“On behalf of all the family, I want to express our appreciation to your Personal Care workers – Basy, Elia, Bora, Wilma, Rita and others – who helped us over the last year. With their compassion, humour and efficiency they helped Johan to enjoy a fairly normal routine for so long. After his health took a turn they enabled him to stay at home.
Thanks for all your support.”
