“I want to thank you for sending Robby to care for Gail. The care Robby gave to Gail was excellent. She was always gentle and kind and instantly formed a close bond with her that was well beyond just taking care of her.
Gail was diagnosed with Bulbar onset of ALS and she needed someone with her all day long. Gail could neither speak nor swallow by that time. Robby came to us every week for 3 days, 8 hours per day until Gail died in October . I had worked out the hours so that we could afford Robby for years to come and I could tend to her the remainder of the week. During that time Robby was dependable in arriving on time and stayed with Gail until I returned home from work, usually staying until I got situated. It was important that Gail be cared for, since as her strength waned, she needed help getting out of bed, standing , going up and down stairs, dressing , showering, assembling meals, etc. Sometimes she and Robby would take walks through the neighborhood, go get her nails done or attend Hadassah meeting so Gail could continue to be involved in activities she enjoyed. Gail immediately liked and was comfortable with Robby. Gail asked me not to" take Robby away from me". I am grateful and feel we were blessed to have had Robby to help Gail through a very difficult time in our lives. Thank you.”
