“My 93 year old mother spent all her days in our home, seeing only us, since COVID changed all our lives. She truly saw only my husband and me. I was busy working from home. I had only small pockets of time to visit and keep her company. She was lonely. We located an excellent assisted living facility close by and were just waiting for seniors to get their vaccine. After her first vaccine, she stayed at home with us for one week, and moved her in, knowing she would quarantine at the assisted living facility for two weeks. She tested negative entering the facility and tested positive about 5 days later-while in quarantine! No one else there tested positive. This was in January of 2021. She spent one week in the hospital, and three weeks at an outpatient rehab facility. My mother’s COVID symptoms were mild flu-like symptoms, but most worrisome, she simply went catatonic. She couldn’t walk and had that brain fog which looked more like extreme Alzheimer’s symptoms. She had difficulty responding to any questions or directions. I had her evaluated for hospice. She needed help with every aspect of her life 24/7. She needed Homewatch CareGivers of South Orange. https://www.homewatchcaregivers.com/south-orange/
We were given a few caregivers, and the one that was her primary, Elena, I attribute to bringing her from a catatonic state to slowly snapping out of this apathetic, unresponsive state. Elena sent me videos of the drastic change that was taking place. My mother was dancing and feeding herself. I affirm that Elena’s patience and professional watchful care helped bring her back to us in the middle of May 2021. When Elena needed some personal time, each of the substitute caregivers delivered professional, caring, trustworthy care, and I knew she was in good care. We developed a care plan together with the assisted living facility to carefully wean my mother back to depending completely on the care our assisted living facility could offer. We hope to celebrate Mom’s 94th birthday in about 2 weeks. She’s going to ask for her champagne! Thank you to Homewatch Care Givers.”
