Testimonials

St. Agnes Adult Day Services has been a lifesaver for my mother and me.

One day last April while I was at work, my mother decided to walk home to her family’s house. The only problem is that her family’s home is in Japan! I arrived home after work to find an empty house. I immediately called 911. The police searched for her, even bringing out a helicopter. It was getting dark and the temperature was falling. Much to my relief, she was found a few hours later. She was spotted by a good samaritan; lost and walking by the side of the road miles from home.

It was obvious that she could not be left home alone anymore. Her dementia had worsened. I hired an in-home caregiver. However, my mother was absolutely convinced she was fine. She angrily refused to let the caregiver in the house. I’m not financially able to quit my job and stay home with her so it seemed my only option was to try and get her into a nursing home. The thought of that broke my heart. I knew that there would be no way to explain to her why and where she was going.

On the recommendation of a medical professional, I decided to try St. Agnes. If I could get her into daycare, I could keep her at home with me. I took my mother for a visit. She was very apprehensive at first and did not want to go back. What to do now? I was in tears. Then, something magical happened. The wonderful staff, familiar with this kind of situation, suggested telling my mother that she worked there. It worked! My mother has been going ever since.

St. Agnes has been great for my mom. Instead of being isolated at home she is interacting with other people. She participates in exercise, crafts, games and conversation. She has made new friends. This interaction is also good for her mind; providing mental stimulation to slow the progress of her dementia.

I know there will come a time when I can no long care for my mother at home, but until then, St. Agnes helps me to provide my mother with a life full of the love and care she deserves.
