Stories From Home

Every day, our home care heroes make a difference in the lives of patients and clients. Each one is a story waiting to be told. We would like to share some of those stories. They are about real people who may be recovering from an illness or injury, have a chronic illness such as heart failure or diabetes or maybe they just need a little extra help at home so they can remain independent. The stories are also about the very special people, our Care Professionals, who provide the caring help and support that makes a difference in the lives of our clients and their families. We’re glad to share just a few of our “Stories from Home.”

Althea's Story

Diagnosed with Huntington’s chorea more than six years ago, Althea has the desire and drive to work with Interim HealthCare’s physical therapist and aides to help maintain her motor skills and slowing the progression of her disease. With help from Interim, her husband Victor still is able to work a full time job and considers her caregivers part of the family.

Bernie's Story

Bernie first met Interim HealthCare Personal Care Aide, Marsha when she provided hospice services for his wife. After his wife’s passing, Bernie realized that a little extra help would go a long way toward helping him adjust to life on his own. And since Marsha was “almost family” anyway, the transition from Hospice to Personal Care services was easy.

Maintaining Independence

Most of us take our ability to do everyday things – from driving to the grocery store to picking up around the house – for granted. But what happens when you can no longer do those simple things? And when there’s no one around to help?

"Are they ok at home?"

At Interim HealthCare, we know what to look for when it comes to whether a loved one can remain safe and independent in their own home. This simple and free quiz can help guide you when making that important decision.

I want to express my appreciation and gratitude for your help with my Mom. She has grown very close to a couple of your care givers. Everyone is prompt and considerate of her needs. It’s comforting to know I have people who I can count on.
