Lifematters has been an amazing resource for our family. When my father had a stroke, I reached out to them to help me with my parents, who were overwhelmed by how to deal with this life changing moment for them. I live on the other coast and my brother is 3 hours away with a busy job and family, so it was going to be hard for us to help on a daily basis. There was so much information and much confusion and lack of coordination between doctors, the hospital and the rehab facility.
I would not have been able to make it through this difficult time without them, and don’t know what I would have done.
Lifematters took the time to meet with my family at the rehabilitation facility on a weekend, actively listened to what we needed and paired us with someone who has been an incredible match for our family. She has given my mom and dad a peace of mind, knowing that they have a friend and representative who is there when they need them, for whatever they face next. Our representative is dedicated, compassionate, organized and an advocate, as well as a great communicator with the family. Her patience and understanding of how to provide a peace of mind is beyond impressive. My mom has commented “I would not have been able to make it through this difficult time without them, and don’t know what I would have done.” Words cannot express how grateful we are for this amazing company and the peace of mind they have brought!
I am writing to thank you for the care that Lifematters recently provided to my mother while she resided at The Jefferson Assisted Living Facility in Arlington, VA. My mother passed away on –/–, yet for the month prior to her passing, she received 24-hour care from your care providers.
I would like to particularly thank Barbara Fedele for her consistent work in arranging my mother’s provider schedule, sometimes needing to make last minute changes to best serve my mother’s needs. She was very patient and never wavered in her pleasant manner of handling these issues.
I want to thank you for giving my family peace-of-mind and comfort in the fact, that with your support, we did all we could to make mom’s last days, as comfortable as possible.
Although many Life Matters providers assisted my mother, I would like to single out Boile Masiu, Grace Damtse, Marie (Mariama) Adams and Mariam Jah. These ladies patiently and lovingly assisted as my mother dealt with confusion associated with delirium. This could not have been easy for them, yet they handled their work with great compassion and dignity. They kindly kept a very watchful eye to prevent my mother from taking a fall, took her for walks, helped dial mom’s phone to enable her to speak with her daughters, assisted her with dressing as well as eating meals.
I live in California and 3 of my sisters also live out of state. My only sister who lives nearby in Arlington, VA holds a full time job. My mother’s last month proved to be an extremely stressful time on the family as we did our best to make proper decisions regarding her care. Your organization helped shelter much of this strain. I want to thank you for giving my family peace-of-mind and comfort in the fact, that with your support, we did all we could to make mom’s last days, as comfortable as possible.
Thank you for dedicating yourself to the medical health care profession. Perhaps more importantly, thank you for the kindness that you extended to my family.
With warm regards,
