“It’s OK to stay in your home.”
Why I Opened My ComForCare Location
I have witnessed firsthand the experience families go through when caring for an aging loved one. My mother and aunt took care of my grandmother in Savannah, Georgia. They had several issues with the agencies they worked with, including coordination of care and poor communication. That kind of added stress can be extremely difficult for both parties. We strive to create an atmosphere and support system that prevents stress for our clients and their loved ones.
Those support systems are created by our caregivers. We know our caregivers are the lifeblood of our organization. We take the time to find the right caregivers to create the perfect match for our new and existing clients. That match lets our clients and their loved ones have peace of mind.
My Most Memorable Moment
When a loved one falls ill, it can race against time to put the proper systems in place to assure they are well-cared for. We pride ourselves on being able to help our clients and their loved ones when these situations arise.
One time, we had a client with a terminal illness who needed to be transitioned back into their home. The hospital was putting a tremendous amount of pressure on the family to discharge their loved one and the family was completely overwhelmed. Within three hours of receiving a phone call from the family, we were able to move the client into their home, and we remained during the hardest times of their illness. The relief the client’s children felt was palpable. They knew their loved one was cared for and in good hands. We want to provide that sense of relief to everyone we come in contact with.
