Care-Connect Touches Lives

caregiver handsCare-Connect serves a steadily growing number of seniors in Central Texas by providing case management and home care services. Helping seniors and their families plan for the future and improve life in the present, Care-Connect has become an integral part of the day-to-day lives of the clients and their families.

While Care-Connect at Home is still quite new, its impact is undeniable. We’re hearing from clients  and family members alike that these connections with their caregivers have given all involved a new lease on life.

Lena, one Care-Connect client, is nearing her 101st birthday! Her caregiver Cheryl is with her 40 hours per week, and has become a constant, trusted companion. Lena and Cheryl go out to lunch almost every day, to doctor’s appointments, the beauty shop, the nail salon, and are frequently seen out and about in the community. It’s evident that both of their lives have been made richer from by the other.

Another Care-Connect client, Maureen, is convinced that God put her caregiver April into her life for a reason, when the timing was just right.

April, along with her parents and five siblings, spent a recent Sunday doing some much-needed clean-up at Maureen’s house. Due to a recent big rain, there’d been a lot of water damage, with dirt, debris, and gravel washed onto her screened porch. April and her family cleaned it all up and hauled it to the dump. They also arranged for the Salvation Army to pick up an old washer, dryer, and freezer. Maureen was thrilled.

“God’s blessings put [Care-Connect] in my life, and you put April in my life just when I needed you most.” ―Maureen S.
