When the phone rings in the middle of the night, you’re startled, your heart races, and you just know that something is wrong. After all, there is no good reason to call someone at that time unless it’s an emergency.
As it turns out, this call WAS an emergency! My grandmother had fallen as she was attempting to answer her phone in the middle of the night. Unfortunately, she fell and fractured her neck after hitting the wall, on the way down. She did not die from the accident and was not paralyzed from her injury, but it clearly marked the beginning of the last phase of her life, as the road to recovery was going to be a long and difficult one.
Grandma was my grandfather’s caregiver, as he had dementia. I immediately found a place to watch over grandpa as grandma slowly recovered in the hospital. Eventually, they were able to live together in an assisted living apartment where they celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. It was through this experience in 2002 that I developed a service to assist others needing help in finding the right senior care facility for an elderly loved one. Every time I help a new client, I’m reminded of just how valuable this service really is, and I think of how I was able to help my own grandparents, in their greatest time of need.
