I just wanted to pass along my highest regards for Christine working with my father. She has definitely been a major reason why he is still alive today and making progress. Wonderful staff person you have there!
Please use that as a reference for your company. The type of service Exploits Homecare offers is very much needed in our world where we tend to forget about the weak and elderly people that have given so much of their lives to others that surround them.
Thank You, Brad
Theresa Penton became our sixth client in July of 2010. At that time she was living in her own home in Grand Falls-Windsor and got to know our company by hiring us to clean her house in preparation for a family visit. She then went on to use our cleaning services on a weekly basis until she was diagnosed with Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease, becoming a regular client of Exploits Homecare Agency until she was admitted into a long-term facility.
In October 2012, her son, Austin and his wife, Charmaine, felt his mother was not ready for a long-term facility (even though her diagnosis was in the high stages of the disease) and, because of his extraordinary love for her, made the decision to bring her to live in their home in Springdale, with the help of home support workers 7 days per week.
She has since been living life to her fullest capacity. Things she has always enjoyed doing she is still able to do. Such as weekly visits to her hair dresser, being a part of daily activities in her home (helping Austin with the dishes ) and smiling and greeting guests in her family’s home. She enjoys camping, evening drives and eating out at restaurants. All of which she would probably not have the opportunity to enjoy if she remained in a long-term facility.
Today being the second anniversary of when Mrs. Penton moved in with her son, we spoke with Austin and Charmaine and asked what they feel has helped to make having Mrs. Penton living in their home such a great success.
“What we were wishing for when we retired and moved home, was to enjoy time with our mothers. Mrs. Penton living in a long-term facility was not in our plans. With the help of Exploits Homecare Agency, we knew we could give her the quality of life she was used to. We knew we wouldn’t be able to do this without the help of the home support workers. So through teamwork, compassion and love, and an understanding of the Dementia/Alzheimer’s Disease, we are able to live out our plans for retirement and provide for her the quality of life she so deserves.”
