a journey characterized with devastation, fear, and helplessness.
On June 23rd, 2005, a pivotal moment unfolded in the office of A.A.C Adoption & Family Network in Berthoud, Colorado. Accompanied by my husband and our two young boys ages 6 and 7, we explored the possibility of adopting a girl. But life took an unexpected turn with a call from my sister delivering shocking news:
"Mom has suffered a severe stroke and is in the intensive care unit."
The stroke left her short-term memory and vision severely impaired. This marked the beginning of my journey into the world of home care.
The enormity of the situation dawned on me: my mother could no longer live independently. In the subsequent weeks, as Mom remained hospitalized, my brother and I faced a pivotal decision. We resolved to embark on a shared journey, taking her care into our own hands. We brought Mom home.
The first six months were a whirlwind of challenges.
Navigating the landscape of home care proved arduous. Quality caregivers and suitable agencies were elusive. Guidance from others who had undergone similar experiences was scarce. The resources that did exist were outdated. Nonetheless, surrendering was not an option. This transformative phase of caring for our mother instilled in us the virtues of patience, resilience, and self-belief. For nine and a half years following her stroke, our mother thrived in our nurturing home environment, supported by exceptional caregivers we managed to find independently. Her passing on January 16th, 2014 marked the culmination of a life well-lived, enveloped in love and compassionate care.
Making a positive change for others.
In the aftermath of my mother's passing, an undeniable urge to share my journey with others grew within me. Her story constituted the initial chapter of my comprehension of the significance of home care. The onset of my husband's Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis marked the second chapter. As his condition progressively deteriorated, his care demands escalated, deepening my resolve. This path led me to Anova Care, where I now endeavor to infuse my experience, love, and devotion to ensure your loved ones receive the same exceptional care.
It is my mission to ensure that you or your loved will
thrive at home.
