We are writing on behalf of our parents
September 15, 2014
We are writing on behalf of our parents, Robert and Virginia Ferdinand. In September, our mom fell and it became apparent that at the age of 89 and 91, that our parents were not able to continue to live independently. They have been married for 62 years and have been in the same house for over 60 years. The thought of moving them to an assisted living facility was not an option. As we discussed the next step with the hospital social workers, doctors and physical therapists, we decided to begin with 20 hours a week of home care and equip the home with a medical alert system. We sought advice from friends, health care providers and social workers. One name kept coming up. Divine Home Care was in everyone’s “Top Three”. After an interview in the home, we decided to contract Divine. The second employee who was interviewed by my parents was Theresa. My mom looked over to us after meeting Theresa and said, “She is the one”.
We have just returned home after spending a few days with our parents. Theresa has become one of the family. Not only does she keep the home exceptionally clean, she has built a relationship with our parents that is beyond what we could have hoped for.
We asked our parents to share their thoughts: “Theresa is a very responsible person. She knows her duties and completes them with very little supervision. She has become a “part of the family”.
One cannot purchase “Peace of Mind”, but in essence, that is what we did. When we hired Theresa, her care and relationship with parents has given us just that. It is our privilege to recommend Theresa to be recognized as someone who goes above and beyond. Her kind words, thoughtful care and positive countenance have made a difference in the lives of our parents.
