Testimonials

When it became too difficult for our parents to stay in their home, their first move was to a small apartment in an assisted living. During their stay, it became increasingly frustrating to deal with the large size of the institution and the complexity of working with the management to insure that they had adequate care. Their needs became too great for their living situation, and my sisters found For Senior's Sake as an option. My first visit to the house was the day I brought our parents to their new home. What I saw as I stepped inside was a family home, and I knew we'd come to the right place. It wasn't fancy; it was warm and welcoming. The staff reached out to my parents, and indeed to the whole family, with a kind attentiveness that never wavfered during my parent's stay. I saw my mother's depression begin to lift, and my father's increasing confusion met with patience and affection. The staff was always willing to answer my questions and always offered a cup of coffee when I visited. I will always be deeply grateful to For Senior's Sake for welcoming my parents into their home.

I am writing this as a letter of recommendation of the adult family home, For Senior's Sake. I moved my mother to Seattle from Nevada in March of 2009 after her husband passed away. The transition was extremely traumatic for her and she had several admissions to Northwest Hospital. Under the care of Laura and the others at For Senior's Sake she did very well. I thought that they provided her with exceptional care. She finally settled in and really liked it there. It was a very difficult transition. She made friends with a couple of the other ladies at the home. She loved that Laura cut and permed her hair. I think it made her feel quite special. I think that the quality of her life was better in the last 4 months she was at For Senior's Sake than it had been for quite some time.

In her final days Laura, and the other caregivers gave her one to one care and all the individual attention that she needed. They did all they could to make her comfortable.

She finally seemed very comfortable with them and her surroundings.

I always felt very welcome when I went to visit her. The last week she was there I was there a lot of the time. I felt like they were very supportive of me whatever I wanted to do.

I would highly recommend For Senior Sake. I am a nurse practitioner and having a nurse available on site was important to me, and Laura was great. I would choose For Senior Sake again if the need arose.

Dear Laura,

I just wanted you to know that my Sister and I feel very blessed to have Mom live out her final years at For Senior's Sake. As you well know, it was a very difficult decision to place our Mother in an adult family home and we did quite a bit of research on various homes in the area before deciding on your home. I remember still being apprehensive because you still are not sure if you made the right decision until time passes and we get to know the caretakers. In Mom's case we knew we made the right decision very quickly when we saw, first hand, the professionalism of your staff, and the love and attention that Mom received over the 2 years she was there. The few concerns we did have along the way were also taken care of immediately.

There is a certain stress level that we all live with as our parents reach their final years and by virtue of the choice we made with 'For Senior's Sake' allowed us some comfort, the ability to sleep at night, and occasionally get away on much needed vacations knowing that Mom was cared for and loved.

Please feel free to use me as a reference that might help others to make their decisions and please also give my sincere thank you to your entire staff.

Blessings,
Bill Shields
