In 2006, my mother experienced medical and cognitive changes that were going to alter her sense of control and independence. My siblings and I found an amazing Geriatric Care Manager at GAMS who was able to be with Mom when we could not. For the next five years, our caregiver made everything possible.Merle W.
I’m so grateful for the part you played in keeping Mother safe, happy, and healthy. She’s doing well in her new home, saying she transplants easily. Mother could not have lived independently without GAMS, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.Bonnie H.
My aunt couldn’t have had a better person than you looking out for her welfare. She couldn’t have been your easiest client, but you were the best advocate for her. Thank you for your help, suggestions, understanding, time, and caring. And thank you for making her smile.Cathi
My mother’s life was enhanced and enriched by your efforts and your love. And you were a great comfort to me, both in giving me confidence that my mother was in good hands and in serving as my therapist and confessor. You made the last three years so much better for Mom, my wife, and me.Kirk W.
