Meet Jane

Concerned about your aging loved one? So was I. I cared for my mother for 10 years before she went into a nursing home. I lived with her for five of those years. Your loved one will receive the same caring, compassionate assistance from me. I'll enable as much independence as possible for as long as possible. This could include short walks, sitting outside on a nice day, visiting friends, or transporting them to hair and medical appointments, church groups, clubs, or meals out. I can do shopping and errands with them or for them. At home, we can watch old movies together, play games, and assemble puzzles. I can read to them or play the piano. I'll be a new listener for their reminiscences. I can provide personal care, medication management, and other services, too. I would love to discuss the needs of your loved one and shape a plan that would most benefit them and put your mind at ease!

Jane helped care for my mother for 10 years before she went into a nursing home. Five of those years were live-in. Jane made our mother feel special by getting her out each day and talking to Mom about her childhood memories. She also provided photo updates of Mom's activities. Jane took her to church, to see her friends and to her monthly Study Club group, which had been meeting for 52 years. She also made it a point to watch movies from my mother's era, which Mom really loved. She handled her medications and ensured it was taken as directed by the doctor. She also helped with bathing, dressing and bathroom care, as well as mobility issues and getting her into and out of the car. Her most important quality was her reliability. Our family knew that with Jane's care, Mom stayed out of the nursing home for the longest possible time. I know she would take wonderful care of your loved one.
