“You will stay home Forever” –
That was my promise to my mother who was diagnosed with Parkinson disease and deteriorated over a 4 year period from being a healthy unstoppable woman to a person that could no longer walk, talk, eat or drink. Yet her mind was sharp until 2 days before her body gave up on her. All she wanted was to be surrounded by her children and grandchildren and await the birth of her first great grandchild before she closed her eyes and took her last breath. As a family we take solace in knowing we gave her what she wanted and she was at peace in her own home. I sponsored a full time live-in caregiver for my mom. She was a gift to our whole family. She looked after every want and need with the most amount of kindness and compassion. Because of this, I was able to spend my time enjoying every moment and creating more memories that my family and I can share.
Inspired by my mom’s courage, kindness, bravery and beautiful smile, amidst all of her suffering, Stay Home Forever Inc., was created. We want seniors just like herself to have their dream of living at home comfortably and safely as long as they wish to.
