My mom is 82 and started exhibiting the first signs of Alzheimer’s a few years ago, after my father passed. We arranged for a home health aide to spend most of the day with her. At first it was wonderful, but then she experienced bouts of paranoia. We found we were orchestrating the entrance and exit of numerous aides. This took a real toll on us, mom and the agency we were using.
Mercifully the agency introduced us to Senior Connections. Pat and her staff, as well as the driving service she works with, are so caring and understand people with Alzheimer’s incredibly well. They are knowledgeable, have nurses on staff, and are brilliant at problem solving. Nothing escapes their attention, and they are very sensitive to the difficulties people experience when losing their memory.
Pat and her team got mom to play the piano for them daily. She made friends, and looked forward to going every day. It lent routine to her day, and she had loving people surrounding her, giving her the attention she craved, without judging her.
Together, we made a team of support for mom. Her sense of worth and her spirits improved tremendously. I cannot recommend Senior Connections more highly.
