When Ruth Faber came to live at Village Woods six years ago, she was able to live independently, and her daughters Barb Warblo and Joan DeBlock visited frequently. But as Ruth grew older, and her memory became more affected by age, she needed more assistance.
The family found out that they could receive Private Duty services from Providence at Home, right there on the Village Woods campus. The amount of services Ruth has needed has increased as the years have passed, but Providence at Home adjusted their level of services to meet her needs.
And having Providence at Home allows Ruth to live alone in her apartment, but still have the help she needs, when she needs it.
“Those people make all the difference,” Barb says. “I don’t know what we’d do without them.”
“We visit pretty often, but we can’t be here all the time,” Joan says. “But we don’t worry. We’re grateful for the people who take care of Mom.”
And Ruth loves the Providence at Home staff, too. “They help me when I need it,” Ruth says. “I have nothing to complain about. It’s perfect.”
