"I tried to engage in-home care services for my grandmother earlier, but she thought it would limit her independence. When she moved to an apartment in a facility and soon after fell and broke ribs going to the bathroom, she was moved into the skilled area of the facility. She rapidly declined and dementia took hold and the real grandmother I had grown up with as a caring, loving independent woman was disappearing in front of our eyes. So I engaged Home Instead Senior Care who matched her perfectly with Heidi, who took her outside, sang to her and with her, and read from her Bible twice a week when she came to see Grandma. Since music is one of the last memories to fade, there were songs Grandma remembered better than Heidi! Home Instead made the process seamless and easy for me, and brought relief to my family who couldn't be with her as often as we all wanted to. Heidi continued to spend time with Grandma up until a few days before she went to heaven. I would highly encourage anyone with a loved one who needs a little or a lot of help, to seek out Home Instead Senior Care and give them a try. They do what they say they will do, and then some. Thank you Home Instead!
