Melinda and her husband Al have experience living with and caring for our older generation. Melinda is the granddaughter of a US Navy Chief who raised her from birth. Soon after getting married the young couple took in her grandfather who was a widower. He was a special part of their family for the first 11 years of their marriage until his passing.
"As a young couple, we raised our family with Grandpa by our side. "Grandpa" times were precious. He really was like an angel to us. He held each one of my boys. He went to the senior center, shopping, church, gave out candy on Halloween, played board games, watched sports, saw movies and ate out on special occasions. He even baked with my boys our family favorite blueberry pie.
Grandpa and other seniors want to remain independent and stay in their homes or within their communities for as long as possible. Family's often do not know what to do. Whatever their needs are- having a loving, caring, and dedicated companion with them can make all the difference in the world. With a little bit of help, most seniors can stay home and live happily for a long time.”
This is why we do what we do, it is not easy, and we understand.
