A Way to Stay has been by our family’s side twice. The first time our family met A Way to Stay, my aunt, Sue, called them to take care of my grandmother. Aunt Sue retired to take care of my grandmother who had diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and cataracts. Things were alright for sometime until my grandmother got really frail, couldn’t really walk due to the crippling pain of the arthritis, and worsening eyesight. Aunt Sue was advised by her doctor that if she couldn’t manage things on her own she should look into outside assistance to help her with Grandmom.
Aunt Sue found A Way to Stay online and called them to see what they could do. Well, she lucked out on because after talking with Devon, she knew that this company was the one. A Way to Stay came in daily for about 4 hours a day at first; but when it was obvious that Grandmom was getting worse, they were there 24-hours a day. Aunt Sue and Devon really clicked. Devon was even there some hours to help when staff called out or got sick. All of the caregivers became apart of our family.
Aunt Sue & Devon built such a relationship that even after Grandmom passed 5 years ago, my Aunt Sue called A Way to Stay to help her out when she had surgeries on her hips and knees. Aunt Sue had June come in a live with her for 2 months. Aunt Sue had company and someone to cook for her... making healthy meals instead of takeout. After June left my Aunt Sue was diagnosed with cancer. By the time she knew she had cancer, it had spread everywhere. Just like they were with Grandmom and Aunt Sue before, they were with my Aunt Sue when she was at St. Mary’s ICU and in her last days.
A Way to Stay is such a wonderful company! I do not know how my family would have been without them.
