Home provided dignity for mother’s final days
To The Editor:
To recognizing exceptional care: After an excruciating six weeks in the hospital, because we could not find a suitable place for my mother, we discovered the ProTem Health services. Their facilities are based on a 10-bed ratio for three attendants.
My mother had given up on life, she was refusing to eat, was not walking except to go to the bathroom, was sad and lonely.
She had spend 10 days in the hallways of the hospital waiting for a room, getting her bed wheeled in a bathroom at night so she could sleep: it was unbearable.
When she entered ProTem the first thing she said was “It smells good in here, I’m hungry!”
The attendants were exceptional from the very first day that she arrived. It took her about one week to settle in, and she decided that it was her home. The whole team made he feel loved, cared for and treated her with dignity, all the while trying to let her do as much for herself as she could. My mother passed away on Nov. 9, surrounded by people who loved her, hugged her and made her feel special.
I wish only that the model of this facility could be emulated for all our seniors. It is humane, loving and, most important of all, patient orientated rather than task orientated. My mother received exceptional care within the atmosphere of a home rather that an institution.
