In Hawaii, being labeled as the sandwich generation, is quite common. Not only do we have to raise our children, but sometimes unexpectedly we have to care for our parents too. My mom was recently diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer. She was the primary caretaker of my father who suffered from encephalitis and dementia. I was feeling quite overwhelmed with the responsibilities of NOW taking care of both my parents and children.
CareSift for Hawaii came into my life at the right time! I contacted [them] in the middle of the night and explained that I needed to find a place for my dad so I could take care of my mom. She responded immediately! Together, [CareSift] and I worked together to find a care home for my father. [CareSift has] excellent communication skills from the start to the end and thereafter. They were always in constant communication with me every day by email, text or phone call. They worked diligently on finding the right care home for my father and did not stop until we found the right one. [They] even took the time to call and advocate for my father’s care with his long-term insurance company.
If I had to give anyone advice on how to prepare or deal with urgent, existing, or future parental care, please call CareSift Hawaii. [CareSift] will provide the most support, understanding, and assistant for you and your family needs.
