Editorial review from Citysearch 8/7/2012

Home Care after an accident - I was wondering how to manage after the motorcycle accident. Doctors said bed rest was a must – I couldn’t move much anyway. And Sara my wife couldn’t take any more time off from her job. Our attorney suggested Visiting Angels San Jose. We thought it was only an elders home care facility but we were wrong. They offer customized home care services and were happy to send a caregiver to help during the day till I’m on my feet again. Visiting Angels saved the day.\r \r more

Editorial review from Citysearch 6/29/2012

Companion Care - Dad loved talking and mom was a patient listener. Suddenly she wasn’t there anymore. Then he realized what she meant to him. But what worried us was every time we visited him he seemed to become more withdrawn – as if he wanted to shut himself away from the outside world. We spoke to his parish priest who used to visit as often as he could. He said dad was lonely and needed a companion - someone he could talk to. Otherwise he was quite capable of looking after himself. Father suggested Visiting Angels San Jose as a solution. It was a seniors’ home care facility which had served some of his other parishioners. That was six months and several care givers ago. They provide just a few hours of companion care every day, but Dad is a changed person. He likes meeting new faces to whom he can relate all his old stories. He’s happy, so are we. more

What do you do in a crisis? 2/9/2012

It was just a faint sound that woke me. I tapped on my father’s door but got no reply. His breathing sounded ragged andlabored so I opened the door. There he was half seated in his bed, hand clutched to his chest, trembling and sweating, breathing in deep gulps like he was fighting for every breath. They’re discharging Dad today – a week after that frightening experience. But I’m not taking chances. What if he has another attack while I’m at work? Visiting Angels San Jose is sending a caregiver to look after him while I’m away. She’ll only have to give him his medication, warm his food and keep him company. But then of course it gives me peace of mind knowing she’s there. Visiting Angels San Jose was recommended by a friend at work. This seniors home care facility looks after her mother who suffers from dementia. more

Was homecare the right decision? 11/22/2011

I kept asking myself this after my mother had her second fall, or should we have admitted her to a nursing home? But she wouldn?t think of leaving her own home. Fortunately the damage was slight, but what if she fell again when she was alone. Then the family made a decision which mother didn?t agree with. I called Visiting Angels of San Jose, an elders care agency, and they were so nice about it. They sent across three care givers to meet mother. She took to Melanie immediately. They?re two of a kind. Melanie keeps the house spick and span, and cooks, just the way mother likes it. She helps her with her bath as well and makes sure mother takes her medication on time. We?re so relieved ever since we started home care services. And mother is happy too with our decision. more

I Never Worry About Mother Anymore 11/3/2011

Mother refused to go to a retirement home preferring to live alone on her own. But she wouldn more
