Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
Thank you so much for sending your kind, loving ladies to care for my mother. Each and every one that I met went above and beyond to make sure she was comfortable and had what she needed. Again, please give my thanks and warmest regards to all of the sweet ladies who really gave themselves to care for my loved one as if she were their own.

When a person in Birmingham needs care for a degenerative
disorder, we understand that there can be changing requirements as the disease
evolves. One of our clients was a man in his 80s who was living with ALS (also
known as Lou Gehrig’s disease), which causes weakening of the muscles and
affects a person’s ability to swallow, move, and even breathe. We were able to
provide care to him for about eight months. Because some of his needs were
beyond the scope of our services—he used a feeding tube, had a morphine pump—home
care might not have been the obvious choice. And yet he also needed someone to
help with “transfers” which is how we refer to helping someone move from the
bed to a chair or something like that. Through a selective interviewing and
training process, we were able to staff two caregivers who were capable of
transferring him and adding to his quality of life.
