Monika and Dennis came to us at the right time when our mother was in her last six weeks. Palliative care through the system was good at times but it was stressed during the pandemic which meant that there were a lot of gaps in mom’s health care that needed to be provided for that were simply not being met. Hiring outside help can be overwhelming when you as the caregiver are emotionally and physically fatigued. Upon first meeting and throughout the daily visits we were greatly comforted by their kindness and thoughtfulness towards mom’s wishes. I also found Monika and Dennis attentive, professional and generous with their time and made mom’s transitions easier as she began to lose her ability to care for herself.
At the end Monika helped guide us through all the steps we were simply not aware of. When we needed some hand-holding they were certainly there to help us navigate all these new rapid changes. Even now, I miss the cheery greetings in the mornings. Glad, that they were a part of our lives – even for awhile.
