Caring House stood in a completely different category . . .

Ruth Cuccia

When it became clear that my mom needed more care than could be provided for her at home, we interviewed many different hospice care facilities in the South Bay. Caring House stood in a completely different category as compared to the other options available, because:

1) Caring House is 100% focused on end-of-life care, including hospice. So, the staff are all experts at dealing with (and relieving you from) all the stuff you’re so worried about (physical care, nursing/caretaker coordination, nutrition), so that you have time to relax and spend this valuable time with your loved one.

2) We truly felt like family from the moment we walked into the Caring House. It was our final interview of the day, and my dad for the first time relaxed as he discussed scenarios with the staff. Caregiver Sandra immediately set us at ease as she walked us through how things work and was incredibly patient with us as we asked SO many questions. The testimonial videos on their site are fiercely genuine and reflect exactly how we felt when we were there–they truly welcomed our entire family into their home.

3) The vast community of people at Caring House that contribute to your loved one’s experience is almost overwhelming, in the most quiet and calming way possible. Beyond the pros and highly trained staff running the place, there is a constant flow of volunteers (community members, nurses, spiritual leaders) that come to hang out, help out, make cookies, do chores, talk to visitors, coordinate event–it’s amazing.

4) In the year since my mom passed away, the Caring House hasn’t forgotten us. They continue to reach out as we move through the grieving process, and we so value their love and support. They have a true calling, and we have benefited greatly from their commitment.

I wish and hope that every family facing a situation like ours have the opportunity to spend those last precious days and weeks at the Caring House. It was the best choice we made during a difficult time.
