A.H. in Higganum tells us why her dad is doing so well with Lighthouse Home Care

“We were in need of transitional care for my father. We had previous home care experience with other local organizations and had not been pleased with the quality of care my father received. We decided to try Lighthouse home care, and this was a refreshing and eye-opening experience for sure!

The team and support assigned was exceptional! Laurie was his Physical Therapist, and Laurie was the lead person in dad’s care. Joni was his Occupational Therapist. Dawn was his Home Health Aide, and Katie was his nurse. Each of these individuals… went above and beyond any level of care I could imagine for my dad.

Safety was always the #1 priority, and the team made several key recommendations for our home to make taking care of dad safer and easier for us and him. Laurie was an excellent resource. She helped us rent a hospital bed and gave us valuable tips for caregivers in many areas other than PT! Joni was absolutely wonderful, as were Dawn and Katie.

Our Lighthouse Home Care team was competent, compassionate, and really worked as a team to get my dad on a working homecare plan.

He continues to use his commode independently, is sleeping all night, and uses his walker and wheelchair safely. The gel pad for the wheelchair makes it more comfortable for him for longer periods of time, too.

Laurie’s suggestion to discontinue use of the rollator walker was correct, as the standard walker is safer. His shower transfer chair has made showering easier for dad, and easier on my mom, who has rheumatoid arthritis.

Dawn was just the right personality for my dad; this is so important in a Home Health aide – patient relationship. She made him feel comfortable and would reinforce his exercise plan with him… not an easy task!

Your team never tired of our endless questions.

We are ever grateful to these wonderful ladies for their expert care for my dad. We will not hesitate to recommend Lighthouse Home Care to others, and we now know exactly who to call! Please extend a heartfelt thank you to Laurie, Joni, Dawn and Katie!

Sincerely,

AH, Higganum, CT
