Pat Robinson is an independent woman, but when health problems made it difficult for her to care for her husband, Earl, she turned to Guardian Home Care. Through Guardian, she met Tiffany, who Pat calls “the best care worker that could ever be made.”
Pat’s children were insistent that she find some help following her hospitalization for heart problems. She had heard about Guardian Home Care because she lives near Guardian’s headquarters in Hagerstown, Indiana. When she contacted them about getting help, she heard a familiar voice on the other line. Guardian Home Care owner Daryl Addison went to school with Pat’s daughter and graduated with her son-in-law.
Daryl and the Guardian team arranged for Pat and Earl to get the care they needed. Their caregiver Tiffany would arrive in the morning and fix breakfast, ensure that Earl took his medicines, and get him set for the morning. She would also help Pat with light housekeeping and other tasks.
“I didn’t think Earl would be ok with having help, because he was stubborn,” Pat shared. “Tiffany just fit in with us. She would approach him in a very proper way and encourage him to do what he needed.”
Pat’s health improved, along with Earl’s, but then Earl passed away. Pat wasn’t sure if she still needed help, but she asked to have Tiffany continue helping her once a week.
Tiffany goes with Pat to doctors’ appointments and continues to help with housekeeping. She even helped Pat put flowers on Earl’s grave.
“I knew she was consoling me in her own way. It was special,” Pat expressed.
One of the more unique adventures Tiffany had involved raccoons. She was going to feed the cats, and found that the racoon trap in the barn had captured a live raccoon. Pat’s son would usually take care of the racoons that got in the trap, but he was away at the time.
“She said, ‘There’s a ‘coon in the cage out there, but it’s not in my job description to shoot a coon,’” Pat recalled with a laugh.
“Tiffany is just excellent,” Pat said. “I just really appreciate Guardian Home Care and recommend them highly.”
