A-1 CARE STUDIES

Dedicated Professionals

I wanted to express our appreciation for excellent service, care, and understanding that you provided while our mother was your client.

The A-1 Action caregivers were uniformly excellent. They demonstrated this in how they cared for her and were truly caring and concerned for her well being. The caregivers were professional, skilled, understanding and sympathetic. They not only helped her through her last days but also assisted the family with their concern and advice.

I also wanted to thank Robert and Mark for the time they spent on the phone with us. Both of them were very patient and understanding. Their advice was very much appreciated.

Our Extended Family

My mother was admitted to rehab for two broken feet. My sister and I both lived in a different state, my father was in no condition to take care of her, and we could not leave her alone. The rehab center provided us with a list of agencies that offered home care and A-1 Action was one of those listed.

As soon as I called A-1, I immediately knew that I had found "home." The family owned business was easy to work with, compassionate and understanding, and they provided us with a caregiver as soon as we got mom back home. There was no delay, no lengthy processing, or a zillion evaluations to find out what my parents needed. After six years with them, I feel like I have new friends and certainly I would never have been able to get through parental care without them. In other words, they became family.

Our Extended Family (continued)

The caregivers from the agency were amazing. My mother and father continued to deteriorate through the years and we needed 24/7 care. Both of the main caregivers we had were extremely invested in my parents' well being, and had patience, compassion and understanding of my aging parents' mental and physical decline. Substitute caregivers that filled in from time to time were more than qualified and again had a deep understanding of the aging brain and body.

My mother and father were admitted to Hospice care toward the end of their lives, but Hospice does not provide round the clock in-home care, so I still needed A-1's help. Our caregivers would not leave to take another job, even though they knew this one was ending, they remained with us to the very end.

Home Alone

My mom was approaching her mid 80's and needed help with her daily routine and medications. She didn't want to leave her home, just needed some extra help with her daily routine.

A-1 Action Nursing Care sent us a wonderful nursing aide to help my mom with her daily shower, administer her correct medications and dosage, and spend quality time in conversation and companionship.

My mom is now able to live more independently and stay in her home as a result of your help. The nurse's aide was kind and compassionate and my mom felt safe and taken care of. We are grateful for your quick and helpful response and are relieved that she is happy and safe!

Simplicity

The great American philosopher, Henry David Thoreau said it best: “Our lives are frittered away by detail…Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity.” Simplicity is the ease with which one completes a task or understands a matter or problem. I often develop an overwhelming feeling that we make some things so complex that the true outcome becomes clouded. I believe this to be true of aging as well.

Who has heard the story of the elderly woman who has a minor fall and the next thing you know the family and social workers have descended? They come in, well-intentioned, removing throw rugs, making suggestions that the woman no longer use stairs, questioning her capacity to manage finances, or her ability to drive an automobile, and inevitably, beginning to talk about her need to live in an assisted living facility.

Clients we've helped...

Thanks for the love and care you put forth. It is more than a job with you. I have appreciated to no end the help you have provided us when we needed it most...”

- Doris Castle

… the wonderful service your agency provides. You are kind, professional and extremely prompt in all communication with us. You found us caregivers that worked well with my mom. They were wonderful, reliable and very loving towards my mom…”

- Mary Beth Sacks

Thank you for the service your agency provided during the last years of my mother’s life. Each aide could anticipate Mom’s needs and wishes. Each of them kept her safe and secure. They bathed her, dressed her nicely, did her hair, and kept me informed of any needs I could help meet. They were a part of our extended family, and I shall miss my daily interaction with them.
I shall continue to recommend A-1 Action Nursing Care, Inc. to my friends and their parents…”

Dear Mrs. Kline,

Thank you so much for all the hard work you and your family/staff did for us to find replacement caregivers on such a short notice. I know it takes a tremendous amount of effort to find appropriate people to care for our mother. Sometimes we don’t express our appreciation because we are under much stress in managing Mom, but we are always appreciative of your efforts.”

- Roberta Wilhelm

I’d also like to thank you for the excellent care you provided for Alvin these last few years.”

- S.P

Dear Mrs. Kline,

My brother and I want to tell you how deeply grateful we are for the support of your agency and the care that both of my parents received from the fine people that A-1 provided.”
