“I am a caregiver for my two elderly parents who have dementia, they both live with me and my husband. They both attend Adult Day Services 3 days per week. My dad has significant difficulty communicating (finding his words) and my mom has very poor vision. Going to group gets them off of the couch and socializing in a way that I can’t, when they are at home spending much of the day sleeping. They love going. When I tell them “no group, today” they are very disappointed. As all caregivers are aware, it is both rewarding and often very challenging. It is truly a full-time job. Even the smallest tasks, such as running errands requires planning. With Adult Day Services, I can plan my errands and not worry about finding respite. I would not be able to do my job as a caregiver without ADS and their staff. They take wonderful care of my parents and I know they are in very competant and loving hands. Added bonus: They make awesome crafts! 🙂 ” Marlene Rama-Hohman
He enjoyes his time with you. It is lovely to see his smile upon arrival when he is greeted. I asked if he was making friends. He said, ‘yes, thank you!
During our time with Lake Superior Hospice they helped us deal with every possible emotion. I cannot explain to you what it is like to watch someone you love take their last breath. Hospice brought peace and comfort during and after that life changing experience. They truly are compassionate to the loved one and everyone involved. Their kind words, personal touch and care is overwhelming. I want to thank Lynn, Peggy, Mary Ellen, and Sarah who brought so much comfort to me during a sad time in my life. I will never forget your presence and it reinforces that there truly are angels on earth. God Bless You.
Thank you to all the special people that took care of my grandma. She was happy when you came to see her. We all love you.
The group setting enables social ‘moments’. The arts and crafts you do with the group are wonderful! The program allows me to work worry free. Your being there and being available…PRICELESS!! Everyone does such an excellent job. Smiles, patience, kindness. Thank you!
Interaction in a group setting has helped to stimulate what mental capacity remains. Most days she returns home happier because of the experience that you provide. I know that my mother is with reputable, caring staff and it eases my mind that she is in a safe, secure environment.
My mother has enjoyed her time there very much; the socializing has been great. She enjoys everyone that works there too. Providing transportation is a big plus for me. It also makes my mother feel less dependent on me.
Your program frees up a day for personal activities. Keep doing what you do, thank you!
I just wanted to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking such great care of my hero, my Uncle John. It gave me peace of mind to know that my nanna had so much help from your staff, and to know that my uncle was taken care of. Thank you so much.
Calling hospice is not giving up… it is the opposite. For my wife it meant a high quality of life and care from loving, committed, and thoughtful professionals. I am forever grateful.
Words are inadequate to express our deep appreciation for the wonderful compassionate care our mother recieved from Lake Superior Hospice. You are all angels on earth. Mom died in comfort and with dignity. God bless you all.
She enjoys the program and looks forward to attending. Even on her days off she asks if it is her day to attend. The staff is kind and handle her disability very well.
