Stories From Home

In-Home Senior Care in Ocean County, NJ

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.”

Ray's Story

WW II veteran Ray Perkins lives alone in a retirement home. And while the facility provides a range of services, they can’t do everything. Interim's Personal Care Aide (PCA), Barbara Keithcart helps ‘fill in the gaps’ with medication reminders, help around the apartment, and companionship. Since Ray lives far from members of his immediate family, those little things can really make a day-to-day difference in the quality of his life.

June's Story

A fall during a weekend boat trip landed normally active June in the hospital. After discharge from the hospital, her physician decided that physical therapy (PT) should be part of her recovery plan. Today, June works with an Interim Personal Care Aide (PCA) as well as a Physical Therapist to strengthen her muscles, speed her recovery, and improve her quality of life. Normally very active, June looks forward to getting back on the tennis courts as soon as she’s able.

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?

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.
