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.
My dad, John, suffered a severe and life-changing spinal cord injury in October 2016. By March of 2017, he had been in Complex Care for several months. The facility staff were doing their best given my dad’s very complicated case but I was troubled by the many medical and quality of life issues that weren’t being adequately addressed. Even though I was very pro-active about my dad’s care, I couldn’t make any real progress for him and I became frustrated and disheartened. My husband desperately searched Google for a care manager and emailed a number of companies. Carol at Careable Inc. (located in Toronto, Ontario Canada) got back to us right away. We had a reassuring conversation on the phone and within a week she met with us in Guelph Ontario, my dad and my dad’s head nurse to further discuss his case, problem solve and develop care and action plans that could be managed long distance by email, texting and phone calls.
