They sent us a truly excellent caregiver whom we now regard as a family member. I have complete trust in our caregiver. She provides a LOT more than just "care". She provides companionship, attention, friendship and I know she genuinely cares. That's all I could ever ask for. And the Service itself has provided excellent support and has accommodated on many important matters. They truly "care" as well. Trust me, this sort caring is what you want to look for when seeking a care provider.
What can I say? Mom has always been a bit of a rebel. After high school, she defied her parents by joining the Army Air Corps WASPs and flying planes across the country during WWII. She actually soloed in a plane before she had even driven a car! Grandpa thought she should work on landing a husband, while Grandma felt at least a secretarial desk or department store counter was more "respectable."
My wife's parents have always been a big presence in our lives. Which is great. Not to mention our kids adore them. About once a year, the whole family would drive to the New Jersey shore to spend a week just relaxing by the ocean with our feet in the sand. My wife's father helped the kids build sandcastles, and her mom read novels under the shade of an umbrella. It was, for everyone, the highlight of the year.
