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.”

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.

The Right Match

As is the case with most patients with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Mr. Stein’s physical condition has slowly deteriorated over time. Now in his late fifties, he finds it difficult to stand for extended periods of time, or perform certain household tasks. As his MS has advanced, Mr. Stein has been increasingly reliant on the kind of help traditionally associated with those of a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA).

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?

There are many home healthcare services, but I highly recommend Interim of Bowie. Where should I begin? They are Heaven-sent to the Bowie area when it comes to home care for workers and homecare for our loved ones. For starters, their management staff is strong—informative, attentive, good listeners, people oriented, diverse, etc. The staff is competent, trained, and passionate—everyone here loves what they do and it shows in their actions, words, and work! Also, they have a fast response time to emails and calls. You are never left to worry about your loved one not receiving A+ care with this location. They treat their staff and clients’ wonderfully and they keep them motivated with activities, trainings, home enrichment programs, etc. I’ve never been happier with Interim of Bowie. .
