“My husband Tom was having serious difficulties: A-Fib, Parkinson’s, early frontal lobe dementia. The journey so far had taken him to rehab and a nursing facility. Now there was talk of bringing him home. I was in a panic.
Enter Senior Care Network and Melissa Romanczuk, their social worker. There she came, to save the day. Her quiet, caring demeanor and amazing expertise put her one step ahead of whatever came next. Homestead Home Health Care staff made it possible for him to be home for most of what turned out to be his last days.
Melissa arranged a meeting for staffing, also coordinating equipment, resources, supplies and transportation, and, most importantly, she provided me with her presence of calm and reason.
She was there with me when I brought Tom home and also on the phone or texting whenever I needed advice. Even when we could no longer care for him at home, Melissa was so supportive as he entered hospice and left this earth a few days later.
How can I ever thank her enough for the reassurance and peace she brought us at such a stressful time in our lives? Melissa will be in my heart always as my guardian angel.”
