Nurse Next Door came to the Hospital to meet my Mom after her fall and to assure her that she would "still be in charge" with their help and dedicated service. Even though the home environment was seriously challenging, Nurse Next Door came in and respectfully assessed what needs my mom would have for making doctor appointments, getting her there, setting up Meals on Wheels, taking mom to the store, bank, laundramat, etc... They asked her what she really liked to do and continue to give her support and caring during the first of what may be many months of a MAJOR change in mom's lifestyle. Perhaps best of all, the Director, Tiffany, has kept in very close contact with our family support system through e-mails and phone conversations. She has responded to all inquiries promptly and with the assurance that my mom's needs are her first priority.
In addition, I have received personal support from Caring.com which has given me the tools and patience I needed to get through this latest crisis with mom. I appreciate it so much! The entire program has helped me to educate both my mom and family on all the options available to us and although we didn't go with assisted living choices at this time, if and when the time comes I know exactly where I'll turn for support and guidance.
