“I would like to write a letter of recommendation about Age in Place Homecare. I am a daughter of parents in their eighties. Therefore, I did the legwork to find homecare for my mother after a 2 week stay in the hospital and rehabilitation center. I had done some research on the internet and found Age in Place as a viable option for the location of Hamburg, PA. I found it a few weeks prior to her hospital stay. The list that I was given by the Reading Hospital Rehab Center did not have Age in Place on it. After no success with the list I was given at Rehab, I called Age in Place.
There were two reasons that I chose Age in Place. First, they service Hamburg without requiring a minimum of hours per week. Second, they service four counties. This means they are large enough to meet our unique needs of only two hours a day for an unknown time frame and to also be sensitive to the needs of mom’s dementia. Yet they are small enough for personal service. I could easily contact the Hamburg office or even Ken Kristopovich by phone with questions.
After a phone call, Ken came to visit my parents’ home in a very timely manner. Ken met my parents, assessed my mother’s specific needs, discussed what we were looking for, and matched us with a very capable caretaker to help us out. We were only sure of our immediate situation which was to hopefully help mom recover to her previous normal state. We didn’t know whether this would be long or short term, but Ken helped us get the assistance we needed.
He sent Cindy to my parents’ home. My parents love Cindy. She was a perfect match for our needs. She helped my mother with personal needs for 5 mornings a week. She also sparked a lot of interest in my mother to help with her dementia. She is very energized and helped mom recover. It was a help for my Dad who is very busy trying to take care of things in the home and with mom. After about 6 weeks of having Cinty, she will be moving on to another home. We can’t say enough good about Cindy’s help in mom’s recovery. It was a very good experience!
We will first consider Age in Place for any future homecare needs.”
