With the end nearing to our family's long term relationship with Home Instead, I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of our family, to highlight an exemplary caregiver - Theresa (Tracy). From fall 2010 to present date, Tracy has worked in our home longer than any other Home Instead caregiver. Her reliability, dedication, thoughtfulness, and leadership qualities made her an invaluable asset to our parents' well being and care. As the longest assigned caregiver to our household, Tracy consistently brought professionalism and compassion to what we imagine has been a difficult assignment (a mother with a progressively slow, long term decline from Alzheimer's and a father with myriad health problems and emotional difficulties with his wife's illness and death.)
In addition to completing all of the defined job functions required of the in-home care givers, Tracy has had a unique ability to connect with our parents and navigate through sometimes very rough waters. In addition to our mother's intense physical needs, our father presented additional challenges through his periodically negative and obstinate behavior issues. Of all the caregivers, Tracy most connected with our father, knew how to read his moods, and how to manage his attitude in order to peacefully diffuse tense situations. In a most recent and significant example, it was Tracy who was the only one able to get our father cleaned up, dressed, and in attendance at our mother's funeral. Tracy has been instrumental in noticing any degree of change in both parents' physical, emotional, or mental health over the years. Her instincts were critical numerous times in alerting other medical professionals to their needs great or small. In fact, it was Tracy who noted our mother's turn for the worse a week before she died on 19 September 2014. Tracy immediately notified family members and alerted hospice to the need for more acute care and monitoring. Tracy consistently went above and beyond all others in taking personal responsibility for our parents' needs.
Tracy generally managed the household these past four years to include training new caregivers, monitoring daily supplies, and regularly briefing the family, the primary doctor, and hospice care on the most nuanced (and maybe otherwise overlooked) changes or problems with our parents. Her unwavering and tireless efforts to care for our parents gave us peace of mind that too few families are blessed with.
Thank you for introducing us to, and keeping Tracy, in our home these last several years,
The care and support Home Instead gives clients are ones that we would give to our own family member. They believe integrity, respect, trust, and are core values of caring for their clients. We also feel consistency and communication are essential to all of these and Home Instead has given us that. They have gone above and beyond in helping my dad feel safe and cared for, for this I am extremely grateful.
“ Our Home Instead caregiver, Sandy, was great with our father. She did a terrific job of making him comfortable during the day and making sure he got his meals and took his insulin and medications. Sandy was that extra set of eyes and ears that we needed with our dad when we could not be there with him. She became a very important part of our family and our dad loved having her at his place during the week; in fact, he always looked forward to the days when Sandy would be there with him. We don’t know what we would’ve done without her.”
I would absolutely recommend this company to all my friends to help take care of thier loved ones. The oppertune word here is care, and that is truelly what this company does. The quality of life for my mother as well as myself has doubled since I found Home Instead and my mother's aide. Thank you so much for everything.
