In 2013, our mother was discharged from a lengthy hospital stay which left her virtually helpless and required round the clock assistance as she could no longer care for herself. A fortunate series of events led us to Kim Forget and Graceful Living Home Care Services.
Kim worked very hard to find the right combination of caregivers for our mother. Our mother was an exceptional woman. She was intelligent, articulate, feisty and did not let anything escape her attention. She needed caregivers who could keep up with her because she disliked being bored. At her advanced age she was dissatisfied with having nothing to do.
Our mother gained her strength with the assistance of the caregivers. She walked with a walker, learned how to maneuver stairs and was no longer housebound. She was able to enjoy the things she loved: going to the opera and plays, giving a discussion group at a senior residence and even going to a mall. Because she was in her own home, she was able to keep her own hours and was not bound by someone else’s rules. This was something for which she was truly grateful. And my sister and I were confident that she would never be alone.
Our mother was cared for with love and respect up until her last moment. Her greatest wish was to stay in her home and because of Kim Forget and her team, she was able to do this with dignity.
We will always be indebted to Kim Forget and Graceful Living Home Care for giving our mother her life back and for making ours so much easier.
