My mother has refused assisted living so she's staying in her house with a caregiver living with her. They live and stay with her around the clock. I live seventy-five miles away from her so I can’t be there everyday; and somebody needs to be with her. So these ladies from Preferred Care are great; I mean they’re really good! They do everything - light housekeeping, cook for her, take her anywhere she needs to go as far as driving. They're really like a companion because we have no family other than her and I and that's it; and I can't be in two places at once. I highly recommend them. Well, it was a little intrusive at first. She’s not used to somebody because my father passed away twenty years ago so she's been alone by herself; taking care of herself and doing what she was used to doing and then having somebody with her all the time, so it was a little bit out of her norm. It took her a little while to get used to it but she likes it now. Like I said it’s a companion; it’s somebody that can be there when I can’t or my wife or my kids or family can’t be there, so it is a nice feature that they offer. At first it was us and then we couldn’t do it around the clock anymore, so this made it a lot better.
