How It Should Be

As many of you know, not only do my husband and I own Capability Homecare, but we are also a client.

My 92 year old grandfather suffered two broken hips last November and has been recovering in a skilled nursing facility since then.

Because he is such a fall risk– we have hired caregivers to assist him with getting to dinner, changing into his pajamas and then helping him use the restroom and get into bed. (ADL’s)

If he wakes in the middle of the night and needs to use the restroom, he doesn’t have to wait for the staff at the skilled nursing to come help him, his caregiver is sitting right there- ready to assist at a moments notice.

We are so grateful for the amazing women that are caring for him- and feel very blessed that he is safe, happy, and well taken care of.

As such, we wrote a letter thanking one of the caregivers, Heather, for her exceptional work.

Her response is below:

‘Not a problem, that’s my job. I had one family member with dementia & Alzeheimer’s, and my aunt is in the beginning stage 3 of Alzeheimer’s. So, I have grown up observing caregiving, good & bad, and providing care to them very early in life. I treat Mr. Watson as if he was my family member with complete compassion, because not only does he deserve it- but someday I might be in his shoes, and I hope that I will be well taken care of. ‘

 

Isn’t that beautiful?

It’s exactly how it should be.

That is what makes Capability Homecare caregivers stand out- we have caregivers who treat our clients as if they are members of their family.

They provide loving, compassionate care because it’s the right thing to do.

Thank you, Heather, for making my grandfather feel loved, safe and cared for. We are so blessed and so fortunate that you are a part of his life.

If you have a loved one that needs compassionate, loving care- please consider giving us a call. 425 679-5770.
