"We don't know what we would have done without the care and attention at CADHC. My 91 year old mother tells us every night how she enjoyed her day. It is home away from home." Testimony from a caregiver helping her mother "Age in Place". Respite for Caregivers!
"We just want to thank-you with all our hearts for the marvelous warmth and kindness you have shown us. I love coming to your support group. I feel like I have family." Testimony from a caregiver and her 86 year old spouse diagnosed with dementia. Caregivers need care giving too!
We enrolled an 83-year-old Chinese woman with a diagnosis of late stage Alzheimer's. She primarily spoke Chinese, but understood English. Her cognitive functioning was very poor, she would not verbalize her needs and her affect was flat. She needed prompting just to eat. The family was responsible for her 24-hour care and desperately needed respite. After approximately two weeks of therapy and person centered care, she began to respond. She engaged in the activities, began speaking, and her flat expression changed to a smile. She was enjoying her self. The family was thrilled and felt better about getting the respite they needed and therefore they were able to remain caring for her at home. CADHC meets a dual purpose; we care for both the client and the family.
