Meet Thomas

I cared for a 96-year-old male with a heart condition and dementia. I was at his home 6 days a week, 7 hours a day, for 11 months. I assisted him with his daily routine as well as assisted his 84-year-old wife with household chores. I was able to learn basic techniques for care from hospice nurses and certified Nurse Aides who came daily. Shortly after that, I began caring for a 94-year-old male as companion, 3 hours a day, 6 days a week. We had lunch together and talked about our life experiences. My next patient, a 74-year-old man with terminal cancer, allowed me... more

I was able to learn basic techniques for care from hospice nurses and certified Nurse Aides who came daily. Shortly after that, I began caring for a 94-year-old male as companion, 3 hours a day, 6 days a week. We had lunch together and talked about our life experiences. My next patient, a 74-year-old man with terminal cancer, allowed me to care for him 4 months, 3 to 4 hours, 6 days a week. I assisted him with daily routines and doctors appointments together with his wonderful wife and family. My next patient and most challenging was a 62-year-old male with FTD. I stayed with him 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 8 months so that his wife could go to work. People with this condition have limited social skills and are prone to wandering. They require around the clock supervision. When I was not there, his wife would take on that responsibility. We eventually had to part ways due to the progression of his disease. I am grateful for the learning experience associated with caring for someone with dementia.

Theresa R. says:
Thomas has taken care of my husband for 8 months. There is so much that I could say about this man. I've never met anyone so willing to help no matter what the situation. He is kind, he is respectful to my husband, he was a friend. He did whatever was needed and always with energy, enthusiasm and love. My husband has FTD and Thomas spent his own time learning and researching to improve his caring abilities.... More

Shannon C. says:
Thomas took care of my husband who was terminally ill with cancer for the last months of his life. He was wonderfully kind to both me and my husband. He provided me much needed respite and I felt completely comfortable leaving the house and my husband in Thomas's care so that I could go on errands and take care of household business. I trusted him implicitly. Thomas assisted my husband with moving from the bed... More

Linda O. says:
Thomas cared for my dad for 11 months. He was dependable, kind, thoughtful and willing to do anything to keep him safe and comfortable. My dad loved him and asked for him every morning when he woke up. He also willingly helped my mom with household chores. Thomas is really wonderful with older people. I highly recommend him and think you would be lucky to have him care for your loved one.
