My parents have long term care insurance, so for most of my adult life I've been aware of future options they may seek including in-home care. My grandmother had in-home care for many years, and it was a huge blessing for her. For these reasons, in-home care has always seemed like something only for Seniors and the aging population. Then my life changed.
My husband, (49 years old) fell 10' and suffered several fractures including the near destruction of his heel. At the hospital we were told this is one of the most painful fractures possible, and that he would be unable to work or walk for many months. We own aVivoPur and a few smaller companies together, and suddenly he was not only on complete bed rest but also under heavy medication. His job as Chief Operations Officer encompasses not only shipping, inventory, and facility management but also many financial aspects. Now all that fell to me, along with 24/7 care for him and our children, and the need to keep up with what I do for the company.
Fortunately, ComForCare's President and Owner, Stephen Endrizzi is a fellow member of my Elite Executive BNI Chapter in Eagan, MN, and on numerous occasions he had described what they do for in-home care. I reached out to see if their offerings could help us out in this critical but temporary situation. Gratefully, the answer was yes.
After Stephen came to our home for a free consultation-sofa visit we determined that his company could give me the respite that I needed to be able to leave the house and keep our business running, while having certainty that Jack had the supervision of safety and keeping up with food, injury care, and medication. Additionally, his caregivers helped with some household chores--cleaning, dishes, washing clothes--further giving me more time with Jack and our daughters and get a little sleep despite a every 3 hour medication schedule all night and day.
ComForCare West St. Paul made a huge difference in how this has gone for our family and business. I would use them again if needed, and will forever recommend them as well. Thanks ComForCare.
