Alex was a phenomenal caregiver for my 96-year-old mother during the last 6 weeks of her life. I had brought my mother home and placed her on hospice. Although I was working from home, I still needed someone to give Mom her abundant medications, clean her, prepare food for her, feed her, help her with some stretching exercises and talk to her while I worked during the day. So I hired Alex to come during the week from 8 am-12 pm, which is what I could afford. She also did some light cleaning for me (laundry, vacuuming, washing dishes). She was extremely diligent and dependable and, together, we worked out a very structured schedule to get everything done for Mom, which worked beautifully. On top of all that, Alex offered to work on most Saturdays so that I could get out and do some personal things and enjoy breakfast or early lunch with my daughter. I will be forever grateful for Alex’s kindness and dedication in making sure that Mom’s last days on this earth were as pleasant as they possibly could be.
