Why PALS » LiveWell! HomeCare In Farmington, NM

The Story

My mom and dad are my best friends. She sang me lullabies when I was young and could not sleep, he taught me how to fish; she was a shoulder to cry on, and on my wedding day, he walked me down the aisle. My parents are aging now and can’t quite do what they used to, plus they insist on staying home, in the home where they raised me. The home where photos of our family are scattered on the walls; photos that are cherished moments and a reminder of the love that fills this place.

Our home is not just a place; the walls reverberate with countless memories—times of compassion, love, happiness and joy, sadness and even heartbreak. Home wraps its arms around my parents and imbues them with a sense of who they are, where they have been, and their life yet to be lived. Home is family; home is independence and security; and home is their future.

I asked myself, “If Mom and Dad want to stay home, how can I help when I am not there?” So I called Partners Assisted Living Services and told them that I was concerned about my parents aging and living alone. The caring professionals at PALS agreed with my concerns and offered to meet with Mom and Dad and myself the very next day.

The PALS professionals came to my parents’ home and listened. They listened to me as I shared my fears and concerns about my mom and dad. The PALS staff listened to my parents talk about their fears of not being able to stay home and of losing their independence. And then we listened to the PALS professionals provide us with the solution.

We now partner with a team of PALS staff and caregivers dedicated to providing the compassionate care and support that my parents require so they can live safely and independently in their home. Mom and Dads’ caregiver drives them to their doctor’s appointments, takes them to the grocery store, helps my mom with her shower so she doesn’t fall, bakes homemade chocolate chip cookies using Mom’s secret recipe, and plays checkers with Dad when Mom falls asleep in her recliner.

My parents live well with PALS elder care services, and I have peace of mind knowing my parents are receiving the professional and compassionate care they need, when they need it. LiveWell! HomeCare.
