Testimonials

W. C. and C. O.

“My sister and I would like to recognize A’s exceptional qualities which she has demonstrated while caring for our father.  She is one of those rare people who combines high degrees of professionalism, warmth, sincerity, competence, resourcefulness and patience. She is always very respectful of our father’s feelings and dignity, especially considering his advanced dementia. She sets a beautiful example of how to care for such a vulnerable client. Her communication with him is entirely appropriate, speaking directly to him in calm, friendly tones, which gets a smile from him and on his better days, a verbal reply.  She assists the physical therapist in walking exercises and also helps our father with hand dexterity.  A. is always helpful and very attentive, and her presence alone is reassuring.  We have also entrusted her in accompanying him to doctor’s appointments (via Belmont Village shuttle), even when neither of us is available. Doctors and medical staff have expressed how impressed and pleased they are with A. as well, and I’ve heard only very positive comments from Belmont Village staff. Even Dad’s cat agrees she’s the best! Her very fine qualities as a delightful individual and completely dependable caregiver make us aware of how fortunate we are for her to be there caring and helping our own father in this most difficult time of his life.”

“…P. has been caring for my husband, who has Alzheimer’s, for over a year.  It is clear that P. understands the needs of dementia patients:  his manner with my husband is very caring and very affirming. He laughs at my husband’s jokes. He will occasionally put his hand on my husband’s arm or shoulder to reassure him.   He provides stimulation as well as companionship: they discuss the news together, they do (simple) puzzles together, they play games together, they take walks together.  He is solicitous, making sure my husband has his jacket, or phone, or dark glasses – whatever is needed.  He will gently direct him as to where something is, or which way to go. He makes sure my husband gets plenty of liquids, which is important for dementia patients.  And perhaps the highest compliment:  pretty much every morning, once breakfast is over, my husband will ask hopefully if P. is coming that day.   I have learned much from watching P.  He is truly exceptional.”

C. A. arrived promptly and was attentive to both the needs of my 92-year-old mother and requests I had. She often found ways to help without always being prompted, and on rare occasions when we asked for changes, she quickly and cheerfully adapted. She was well-versed in your company procedures, completing her paperwork quietly to respect my mother’s request that she not feel “babysat”. I can highly recommend C. as a caregiver and wish her all the best.”

“I have had H. B. coming to help my husband for the last year. She has been a lifesaver! My husband quickly grew to trust her, so I was able to leave the house and get a break for a few afternoons a week. H. would take my husband to volunteer activities, take walks with him, play board games with him, prepare his dinner. She kept him safe when he was having seizures. I could really relax and enjoy my time away when she was there. And she would tell me whenever she noticed changes in him. Sometimes she saw things I didn’t, which helped me take better care of him. I don’t think I could have kept my husband at home as long as I did without her help.”

M. G. is very demonstrative in compassion. She hugs him and teases him. When he’s down, she can cheer him up. That makes me feel great because it puts my husband in a good mood. I feel like he’s well cared for and I can leave him for long periods of time and he’d still get good care.”

“Six weeks ago, the doctors gave my father a couple of weeks to live. Because of the caregivers and their treatment with helping him to eat and drink, my father’s life has been improved.
