I cannot express enough how grateful my family is to A Way to Stay.
My very large family planned to care of our grandparents on our own because there were so many of us willing do it.... Or so we thought until we got more than we could handle between my grandmother’s increased dementia and my grandfather’s sudden physical decline. The year before we decided to bring A Way to Stay onboard was difficult for us because even though we are a large family we couldn’t meet the increased needs of both our grandfather and grandmother.
Necessity being the mother of invention led one of us to a social worker during a hospital visit. She gave us a long list home care agencies. Pointing to A Way to Stay she said, “This is the one I would call." She was right. After Devon’s long phone call on speaker phone with most of our family and answering everyone's questions, we knew A Way to Stay was right for us.
Devon was sure to send Gran the same people and that helped her "recognize" them even with her dementia. This was a special gift as she had not been able to recognize many of her family as her dementia increased. We could not provide her the comfort that my grandfather did. His frequent hospitalizations meant he was often not with her so she spent many moments sad and confused. However, when the A Way to Stay ladies came my grandmother was all smiles. Your agency gave us the invaluable gift knowing my grandmother was happy during a very difficult time in her life. We were able to keep her home and out of a facility until she passed.
Last year my husband’s recently widowed mother came to live with us. We both work full time and are seldom home.
My mother-in-law was used to going out on errands with my father-in-law and was spending a lot of time alone so we started looking for a companion. .
Devon and Dana helped us understand that my mother-in-law actually needs more help than we thought. It turns out that my father-in-law was the "caregiver" of the relationship and never let us know about my mother-in-law's confused mental status and frequent falls!
With the help of the wonderful ladies of A Way to Stay my husband and I are able to keep up with our lives while still making sure my mother-in-law is safe and happy. A Way to Stay is not caregivers. They are family!!!!!!!
I recently interviewed with this company and was extremely impressed with their operation. It is owned by 2 sisters who have full knowledge of the needs of their clients as well the perfect match for a caretaker. There was just a warmth about these ladies and I would feel very confident in hiring them for my loved one. I also believe they care about their staff as well. That is something very rare in this industry. I would strongly recommend them.
