In the early 1990’s, Gail Silverstein’s father had a stroke back in his hometown of Cincinnati. After hospitalization and further recovery in a nursing home, Gail’s father was able to fulfill his wish of returning to his own apartment. From her home in Phoenix, Arizona, she did her best to make sure her father was safe and his daily needs were met.
Gail tried to find someone who could check in on her father two or three times a week, going with him to the grocery, helping with laundry and housekeeping, and making sure he was getting a hot meal. She did not know where to turn, and ultimately moved him to Phoenix despite his wishes to stay in the city where he had spent his whole life.
“If I had only known about services such as Care Corner, my father could have stayed in his home a lot longer and I would have known that he was safe,” says Gail, the owner of Care Corner. Gail’s inability to find someone to look in on her father at home led to her passion for home care and to educating families about the many options available to their loved ones.
