Our closely-knit family found itself in a situation it simply could not handle on its own any longer. My dad began to suffer from acute dementia. This insidious illness is heartbreaking, and, if one is honest, exhausting and at times frustrating. At the same time, my mom was diagnosed and has since been battling cancer. Each of these tragedies have taken an enormous toll on my dad and mom, and it became clear that no matter how hard we tried, we could not keep up with what they needed ourselves. We needed to work, sleep, and take care of other demands as well. We reached out to Caring Senior Service.
Over the past 6 months, we have not been the easiest clients. We were demanding and frustrating at times. NOT ONCE did CSS disappoint. They listened. They understood what strain we were under, and they did and continue to do everything in their power to help my parents and, in turn, my family. I cannot recommend CSS more highly. In our experience, they have done everything they can to provide quality, compassionate home care to my parents. It is not overstating to say I am not sure what we would do without them right now.
Asking for help was very difficult for this family; we have always taken care of our own. In this instance, I am grateful to say CSS is now a part of our own and I am not sure what we would do without them.
