For years, we helped provide care to his wife Liz, now Richard needs care after she has passed away
Right at Home Northwest first started working with Richard and Liz when Liz took a fall and the family realized she needed more help with her personal needs. Liz started to show signs of dementia and we were there to help Richard take care of Liz; while we also took care of both Richard and Liz’s home care needs. For many months we were able to help give the couple quality time by cooking, doing light housekeeping, and assisting Liz with her personal care needs.
In time, Liz needed to be moved into a private community to help her with her declining state of dementia. We continued to work with Richard and drive him to visit Liz in her new surroundings.
When Liz went into hospice care; the family moved her back home so that she could pass in familiar surroundings. Right at Home was able to step in to help with 24-hour care, with caregivers that Liz was already familiar with. Liz has passed and we are still working with Richard, helping with both his light housekeeping needs and to be there to help him so that he is safe when he showers.
