• What are your loved ones needs? Are they seeking companionship? Do they need an individual to come and help prepare meals? Could the house use some light housekeeping? Do they need any form of personal care? It is important to plan out required tasks regardless of how large or how small.

Gather all members of the family, and let them know where you are struggling, and what you are struggling with. Find a way to communicate your issues to all members.

“We met with John Moisa in order to arrange for care for my father. John was a pleasure to work with and talk to. My parents live in a remote area and Acti-Kare was still able to staff us when other companies were not able to or not willing to staff in that location. He came to the house and met with us to explain the services they offered and to help us decide on the necessary care for my father. He was respectful and listened to all our concerns and addressed them thoroughly. We did choose to hire Acti-Kare for 4 hours a day. However, my father had to go into the hospital so the services were not needed at that time. John contacted me several times and seemed to have genuine concern for my dad. After a couple weeks in the hospital we determined that we would need 8 hours a day when dad got out of the hospital. John was able to assure us that he would be able to staff that without any problem. Shortly after that the hospital staff told us that we would need 24 hour a day care when dad would be discharged and again, John was concerned for my father and was happy to help us arrange that care. Sadly, my dad passed away before he could return home. John was understanding and offered his condolences. Although we never had any caregivers at the house, we were pleased with his concern and care for our situation. I would recommend John’s company, Acti-Kare, for senior home assistance and care.”

“My Mother was in a local Independent Living facility in Lynchburg and was approaching 99 years old, I felt that she needed more assistance than an assisted living option could give her. She wanted to stay in her apartment and be with her friends. I happened to visit my Lawyer who is a big advocate for the aging and she recommended Acti-Kare. I contacted John Moisa and within 24 hours he came over to my Mother’s apartment and talked to us about Acti-Kare and what they offered. I decided to have them start immediately. After a few weeks my Mother decided that she no longer needed the sitters and let them go. (A very independent 99 year old). Not agreeing with that move, I called John back and he had the sitters to come back within 24-48 hours. John is very quick to respond and compassionate to you needs. The sitters were good to my Mother. I would highly recommend Acti-Kare.
I live out of town and this gave me a piece of mind.”
