In July of 2017, the VOYCEconnect Coordinator received a call from a man, John, who has used our services before. John reported that in April of that year, our services helped him place his wife in a long-term care community. However, after a month or two of having his wife in the home, John couldn’t bear it anymore. The guilt was getting to him and he decided to bring his wife home and attempt to care for her with the help of home care and other services. He said, “We have been married for so many years, and I couldn’t just leave her there.”
After a few months, John realized that nursing home care was the best option for his wife. If he didn’t place her somewhere, he would soon need to be placed because he couldn’t handle caring for her on his own. He knew this was the best option. The VOYCEconnect Coordinator and John spoke again about options and John focused on places she could stay long-term. After the information was sent, John did some research and found 2 places that he liked. The VOYCEconnect Coordinator and John discussed those places in more detail before he made his final decision. He said, “Thank you for sending me info. You have given me some hope in my search.”
Placing someone in long-term care is not always easy, but sometimes it is what is best for the family.
