I am writing to let you know of my complete satisfaction with the services of your company and caregivers. We have always believed in the importance of “Quality of Life” and we are once again experiencing it thanks to our day CNA and our evening CNA.
My husband, a former commercial pilot was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease. For many months I thought only I could provide the best care for him. It took a toll on my health and his. I also resisted having a caregiver because I valued our privacy and did not want someone “under foot”. We have a long term care policy and after consulting with Lois Winkler, the Admin of your Sarasota office, I agreed to try having a caregiver just for the days.
Due to the concentrated attention to Mr. White’s activities of daily living, he has gone from being weak and constantly falling to being vibrant and regaining his strength. Our CNA takes him for daily walks and makes sure he eats his meals. He will do things for her that he would not do for me. Our CNA has become part of the family and I can’t imagine not having her in our home as she is so good for both of us!
Initially, I was still providing the care for my husband in the evenings. Often after settling my husband in a chair or bed he would try to get up without assistance and fall. It was impossible for me to get him up and dangerous as well. After winding up in the emergency room with compression fractures to his ribs, Lois encouraged me to take advantage of our LTC and bring in an evening CNA. Since our evening CNA has been caring for Mr. White we have had no falls and my husband enjoys the company and stimulation.
The White Family highly recommends CSI services and is so thankful for the excellent caregivers they refer.
