My mother was unexpectedly diagnosed with a terminal illness and was given three months to live. Due to the nature of her condition, our family was faced with finding her a home where she could be cared for rather than bringing her home. We were not prepared for this as many families are when faced with something as unexpected and devastating as this. My sister and I spent several days visiting six home health care facilities; we wanted the best for her as she was about to leave us. After visiting five, we considered two that we felt could be the right place. We wanted though to find one that we felt was "the" place. It wasn't until we got to our sixth stop, Alma's Home Care, where we felt, "this is it." After visiting Alma's, we knew we had found the right place for our mother. From the moment we arrived, Alma and everyone working there including her son Tony, were genuine showing empathy during our difficult time. We felt welcomed into their home and immediately felt a feeling of family. What we saw there was family, along with the home health care aids, caring for the residents as though they were also family. All the residents looked very happy and well taken care of. We could see that this group of individuals were doing this because they loved caring for others and did it meticulously. The home was very clean, it was peaceful but still full of life. The smell of deliciousness was coming from the kitchen. We knew we had found the place. We moved our mom in the following week. Her stay at Alma's was everything we wanted for our mom. She was treated with loving care each and every day and at each changing juncture of her decline. Our family is so glad that we found Alma's Home Care for mom, our experience there was definitely a positive one. We can only say thank you to all for the care that was given to our mother Irene, it will always be remembered and never forgotten.
