Careable in the Community
The diagnosis of Alzheimer strikes a chord with Carol because her father was diagnosed with Pick’s disease, a challenging and complex frontal lobe dementia. This robbed him of his memory, and his ability to make intelligent and informed decisions but most importantly his dignity. As a result, it made sense to team up with the Alzheimer Association. With the help of her family and friends we have supported this wonderful and progressive organization.
Annually we support and attend The Walk for Memories in January and the Unforgettable Gala in October.
Our former clients are also pleased that we gift during both Christmas and Hanukkah and send cards to all our former clients on these occasions.
Navigating the complex workings of Long Term Care placement was a challenge greater than we as a family could manage. Just when we thought we had it figured out and done everything right, the “system” would put yet another road block in our way. We needed someone who understood how the bureaucracy functioned – thankfully we found Careable Inc. and Carol Edwards. Carols insight into the workings of the CCAC organization along with her patient, persistent follow-up got us the face to face meeting we needed. It was amazing how quickly the “system” moved when it realized that across the table sat a very knowledgeable navigator guiding a very determined family. They finally heard and understood that it was us who knew best what mom needed.
In Carol Edwards we found the strong advocate that mom needed and the partner our family needed to champion our struggle.
Thanks Carol, all of us appreciate your efforts.
