Do you hope to be well cared for when you can no longer take care of yourself?
Do you want a place where your relatives know you are safe, and living out your years positively?
Did you answer yes to both of those? Let me tell you how blessed my husband and I are since we were able to have my father as a resident at Broadacres Care Facility.
Earlier this year we had to move from Vancouver to Grand Forks and our biggest concern was finding a care home good enough for my father, making sure he was taken care of just as he had done for our family for years.
I heard about the doors of Broadacres being opened on Aug. 1, 2013 and nervously planned a meeting with Rod Gustafson to check out if this was a good space for my father, who suffers from dementia and Alzheimer’s.
The challenges are that my father can be angry, grumpy, and aggressive and the thought of taking him to a new facility scared us because he was doing so well in his current home.
Immediately after meeting with Rod and his staff, we got a feeling of safety, a feeling that these people would care for my father, just as me and my family do.
We then proceeded to move him immediately. We thought the services we received back home were amazing but now we know that, that was completely false.
Since being in a home, my father was coping, since being at Broadacres my father is living again.
Since his diagnosis, we have never seen my father this happy and content, and most importantly taken care of with the respect from the staff at Broadacres, as if each patient was their own kin.
We are so grateful for the positive and supportive space Broadacres Care Facility has provided for my father and would recommend anyone looking for such a place to check it out.
The staff is not only amazing with my father but amazing and supportive to our family as well.
