What Our Clients Are Saying
Dear Mary Beth,
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and Sonya and your company for a phenomenal experience in caring for our Dad. Paul and Karla have become like part of the family for us. We rely so much on their help and expertise and what a relief to know they are there with “eyes on” when we cannot be. Wednesday’s with Karla are fun and educational for Dad.. she taught him how to text and use Google World so he could look at his beloved house in Greece! They love to talk in Spanish/ Italian too! She is so kind and caring and always looks out for Dad and makes him feel good.
I especially want to thank you for sending Paul into our Dad’s life. He has become much more than just a caregiver for Dad, he is truly a wonderful companion and a good friend who has also been there for all the highs and lows. This was a particularly hard summer for Dad as he had hoped to be well enough to visit his beloved Greece one last time, but his health challenges got in the way. Paul is patient and understanding and always there for Dad. Whether to an appointment or for coffee, he is always by his side. He even has to endure the daily Greek T.V. 5 days a week… he must be fluent by now!
What a blessing these two people have been for all of us – especially my Dad who loves and appreciates them so very much.
I want to express my deepest gratitude to Independent You for the superlative care you provided for Mom over the past few years. We started out with just a couple of afternoons of companionship, with Mom insisting that she “didn’t need anyone” and then not wanting the caregiver to leave at the end of her shift. Over the next few years, we moved to full-time daytime care and then to round the clock care as Mom aged. We also stepped up from companionship to light nursing care. When Mom needed hospice services in the last few weeks of her life, Independent You’s nurses and caregivers worked seamlessly with Capital Caring to ensure that Mom was comfortable and well-cared for at home, as she wanted.
I couldn’t have asked for more and in fact Independent You always went above and beyond. We felt that we were part of the IY family. IY’s caregivers weathered power outages with Mom, doctor’s appointments and much more. They shared stories, took her to church and to concerts, and just out and about. Mom’s quality of life was very good, largely due to IY. She was close to 97 when she passed away, peacefully at home, as she wanted.
“Thanks for all your assistance over the years. Although Mom was a tough nut – your agency was by far the best we’ve ever used. The quality of workers far surpassed the others we tried.”
The caregiver is always friendly and easy to communicate with. She and my mother have developed a very good relationship. My mother looks forward to the caregiver’s visits.
How to thank you for being so kind to my mother? Your help has meant so much…..it was wonderful to meet you in person and so good to visit.
We had the very good fortune of finding Independent You along with Mary Beth and her team when our dear Aunt needed additional help at home. Their professionalism, courtesy and truly kind manner made the transition so much easier. It was like having family at home to help out. They consistently go above and beyond to meet your loved one’s individual needs, making their days more enjoyable and comfortable, while providing our family with total peace of mind. I highly recommend Independent You to anyone who is seeking the best care for their loved one.
