I cannot say enough positive things about everyone at Senior Helpers and their help with my father. I live 500 miles away from my Dad and it is very difficult to take care of his needs, which have become more complex over the years. In addition, my Dad is extremely independent and has resisted help and in many ways has been very uncooperative. The owner of Senior Helpers, Terry, has been exceptionally helpful guiding me through the different needs of aging parents and worked with me and my Dad to come up with the most appropriate care plan. He is patient, thoughtful and very knowledgeable. The caregivers have been outstanding. My Dad has grown to depend on them and they are now "part of the family". Kelly P. was so wonderful and patient with my Dad and he truly came to depend on him. Now Judy is taking care of him and he so appreciates how well she knows and understands him. My Dad makes a special point of letting me know he has care-"givers" and not care-"takers"! And of course, I need to acknowledge Amber, who is an angel and, like every at Sr. Helpers, patient and so helpful. The BEST decision I ever made regarding my father's care was to engage Sr. Helpers. They have been a godsend. Again, I cannot say enough positive things and recommend them unequivocally.
My wife's caregiver, Laura C., is caring, understanding, and treats my wife with concern and dignity. Recently, my wife began a combative behavior and Laura suggested that I have the physician check for a urinary tract infection. It was a good call, but turned out negative. The professionals agree it is simply a sign of the progression of the disease. Senior Helpers owner, Terry Bollons, suggested that we try a medication to reduce anxiety and my wife's physician agreed and prescribed what Terry recommended. After just a few days, I can see a modification of the aggressive behavior with no obvious side effects. Amber D., Terry and Laura C. are truly a Godsend to me. Laura helps me with some light housekeeping and is very helpful. Plus, I can leave my wife with Laura and am confident that she will get loving care.
