Personal Care Testimonial

Peace of Mind Paired with Quality Care

It was Christmas Eve 2014, and Terry had just been informed that both of his parents were being discharged from the hospital. He described it as “a proverbial knock-me-over-with-a-feather moment.” They both needed more care than he would be able to give, so the social worker at the hospital helped him search for the right solution. They determined that Messiah Lifeways® at Messiah Village was the best fit. “So on Christmas Eve, I went to Messiah Village and filled out the documentation…and on Christmas day, mother and father became residents,” Terry remembered. 

After her husband passed away, Arlene (Terry’s mother) was able to find the support she needed at Messiah Village. Today, she is thriving in Enhanced Living personal care where Terry rests easy knowing she’s getting the care she needs. “Her overall health has improved, she is a transplant survivor, so medication is of acute importance,” he said. “The single best feature for us has been the medication monitoring.” Arlene agrees that the move has been a positive experience. “Everybody is very pleasant, very cooperative, and will do anything for you. It’s amazing to me,” she shared. “I just really like it here.”

“As I think about how things were,” Arlene reflected, “I was getting weaker with taking care of the house and cooking and everything. When I got here, it was quite a relief.”

Terry is relieved too. “The time [my mother] has been at Messiah Village has been good for our family due to quality care and communication,” he explained.“The staff calls when appropriate and allows our family to have peace of mind knowing proper care has been a constant. We thank Messiah Lifeways for their skill and caring mission.”
