Graceworks at Home has had the privilege of serving many seniors in our community. We help ease their transition from a surgery or rehab facility back to a home setting. We work with individuals and their loved ones to help take the stress out of the return home, offering numerous support services. Our services are flexible and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
Here are just a few comments from those we have recently assisted:
“If the home healthcare would be anything like what we had at Bethany, there was no need to shop around. The care was first class. All of them were cheerful and capable. They made me enjoy it. Nobody ever said to me, ‘Bill, you’re 82 and you can’t expect to be able to do what you did before.’ They recognized my needs and my progress. When the doorbell would ring, I’d look forward to it. From Bethany to Health at Home, through the whole organization, the quality of care was professional and experienced and their spirit was uplifting. They always made me feel like I was the only patient they had all day. I am grateful for their kindness.”
Bill received physical therapy and nurse care in his home until he was well enough to live at home without assistance.
“The comfort of knowing she has someone she knows and trusts is invaluable. I’ve been impressed with their sensitivity and work ethic and dedication to making it easier for my mother, whether she needs personal care or someone to pick up lunch for her, or just making it enjoyable for her to sit and talk to them. Mom will say the nurse has been her angel. She helped Mom to set goals and look forward to things again, to get back to living her life with confidence. Each caregiver has been extremely professional, very caring and personable with her. Mother looks forward to each of them when they come throughout the week.”
Three personal care aides come to Carol’s mother’s home on different days. They help with personal care needs, have pleasant conversations, transport her to art classes, cultural events and church. One is even teaching her how to use an iPad. Graceworks at Home has made it possible for Carol’s brother, who lives near their mother, to have confidence when he needs to be away.
“It gives him peace of mind to be able to go out of town instead of feeling another family member needs to be in town with her or he can’t go. He knows there’s a team of people she’s comfortable with. She’s very thrilled to still be at home.”
“I know she’s getting better care than if it was just myself. She doesn’t need me around 24/7 and I do need to get out. This has been excellent for both of us. I know there’s someone taking care of my wife. This person interacts with her and I know makes her life a lot more pleasant. I don’t have to worry about whether or not she’s getting adequate care, or if something will happen. This person whom Graceworks at Home has sent is qualified in case of an emergency, knowing exactly what to do and well trained in that. And we like the fact that it’s a Christian-based, not-for-profit organization. There’s a genuine concern for the individual. We feel very blessed.”
