Providing Caregiver Support in Puyallup WA

Finding support for caregivers and other family members in Puyallup is simpler now that you have found Assisted Living Options.

Family members helping care for their senior loved ones can often feel overwhelmed.  The individual is now faced with the backwards feeling of taking care of a parent, instead of the other way around.  Helping an elderly parent walk or go shopping may become routine, but what about when a parent loses the ability to prepare his or her own meals, recognize danger, or becomes unable to manage personal hygiene?  This can feel like a crushing blow to the caregiver, who may not know where to turn for support.

Those caring for loved ones need to know they are cared for, too.  A caregiver should be sure to care for their own personal life as well, in order to continue to provide the strong support the senior parent needs.  Spending time with friends, working in the garden, or taking a weekend trip can be a way to renew the spirit after the emotionally and physically exhausting work of being a caregiver for an older loved one.

This is where Assisted Living Options makes all the difference.  Nancy Watkins is a Certified Senior Advisor, helping families in Puyallup and the surrounding area.  She started her business to help families when they need it most, when caregivers are unsure if they can continue to meet the needs of an aging parent.

Nancy provides families with the information they need to make an informed and confident decision.  If you are wondering if it is time to consider a senior care facility, then it is time to contact Assisted Living Options.

Nancy was so compassionate

I can’t even begin to tell you how wonderful it has been having Nancy help us find a place for my Mom who has dementia. Nancy was so incredible and helpful especially at a time when we were, as can be imagined, having one of the most difficult family events ever. Nancy was so compassionate more »

Thank you so much

Hi Nancy, I want to thank you on behalf of my brothers and I for helping us find a place for our mother. I was at a loss as to how to go about things until I got hold of you. I’m sure we would still be looking had it not been for your help. more »

My cousin is very happy now

Thank you for all that you did for my cousin… She may have been reluctant at first, but she is very happy now (and much safer). You played an important part in this transition.

Positive spin on the transition.

Talked to mom today and heard no regrets (after her move to assisted living). I give you a lot of the credit… you really helped to put a positive spin on the whole transition.

A mere thanks hardly covers it

Picking me up, handling the walker every time, generally bolstering me mentally; a mere thanks hardly covers it all!

Good fit to Mothers needs

Thanks Nancy for responding so quickly to my plea for help. I couldn’t have done it without you. Finding a home for my mother so quickly and a good fit to her needs. I now know I would have made a critical mistake if I had done this on my own. Your guidance in knowing more »

Good care of my Dad

I can’t thank you enough for recommending the house my Dad is living in. Joyce and Sandy are great, along with the other gals. They take such good care of my Dad and I think he really is enjoying living there. It has been a great move for him.

Wonderful to work with

Hi Nancy! This is a hello and thank-you from Duane B’s family. You miraculously found him an assisted living place right after Christmas 2011. He was 96 at the time and in a “spend down” period. You found him a wonderful place in Kirkland. Anyway, I was trying to find something else in my e-mails more »
