My mother, Betsy, required more care than I was able to give her at my age. Although mother wanted to get her new home in order where she could have parties and meet new neighbors and participate in activities, she was just unable to due to her failing health. She begged me not to put her in an assisted living facility or nursing home and I was so depressed because I could not help her and didn't know which way to turn. I was introduced to Cheryl, one of the angels at Comfort Keepers, The Villages, Florida. After talking with Cheryl, my life and mother's changed dramatically. With the help of some wonderful ladies from Comfort Keepers mother was able to enjoy her home, friends and neighbors. At mother's request they helped her open moving boxes and place items around the house. They greeted the friends and neighbors who did come to visit and sit with her, offering them coffee, etc. and most of all, they played games with her to keep her mind and body as active as possible. They drove her around to stores and just sightseeing. In the beginning they helped her fix meals and when the time came that she was no longer able, they fixed meals for her. As time went on and she became less active and frail the ladies would sit and read her passages from the bible which she loved. When she got to the point she needed around the clock care the ladies sat next to her bed all night, being alert to her needs. They kept detailed journals for each other and me in order to see her eating habits, bathroom needs, physical functions . The conversations she had with them assisted me in realizing her overall decline and assisted the doctors in her final days and they knew when to suggest to me that it was possibly time for Hospice. My everyday life was made so much easier knowing the ladies assigned to mother from Comfort Keepers cared for and about her as much as her family did. They became life-long friends. To everyone who reads my review, please believe that this organization, Comfort Keepers in The Villages, Florida, is top "A" in their dedication to the care, comfort and tremendous understanding of your parent, loved one and the family.
