For this year, ESSENTIALCARE of St. George is proving that offering caregiver services focused on patient satisfaction offered at competitive rates is a winning formula. Just ask Anne of St. George, Utah, whose family has long relied on ESSENTIALCARE to help care for her aging mother.
“It is not an easy decision to ask for help in caring for someone you love. But I knew I couldn’t do everything myself,” she commented during a recent interview. Between her role as wife, mother, and employee, Anne is well-skilled in taking care of others. Still, there is only so much of her to go around. Frustrated with her inability to please everyone, she began to look for alternatives to help her balance the many hats she wears.
“I care deeply about my family. I also have commitments to my employer and community. I was growing more and more frustrated with my inability to give everyone exactly what they need from me. And then one night a light bulb went off. I thought, ‘maybe the best way to make sure everyone gets what they need from me is to make more of me,” she recalls with a smile.
While cloning herself was not possible, her epiphany came in the form of realizing she could use others to help her maximize the amount of time and care those around her receive. She could not be with her mother every day, but she could spend the time and effort in making sure the right person could be there for her – an extension of the way Anne would treat her if she were there.
“When I allowed myself to realize it was OK to get help in caring for her mother, a huge weight was lifted from me,” she states plainly.
Her decision freshly made, she set out to find the ideal in-home caregiver service. She went through multiple groups until she found the one that epitomized the qualities she was looking for: organized and experienced, a long-term outlook on their business, a history of great customer feedback over a substantial number of clients, and the right “feel” of caring she demanded for the woman who raised her.
“I hit a lot of dead ends at first. Or I would find a group that was good in one area, but poor in another. Then I was referred to ESSENTIALCARE,” remembers Anne. “They literally have changed mine and my mother’s lives for the better. Mom gets the attention and care she needs and I get the peace of mind and satisfaction I need.”
