The challenge: Frances Bigda has Alzheimer’s disease. While living in her own home, she had trouble remembering and following-through with critical tasks. Her safety was at risk. Frances also needed more time with other older adults. Her children—Andrew Bigda of Pennsylvania and Carolyn Dulchinos of Colorado—sought a place where their mother would receive compassionate care. Frances moved to Glenmeadow two years ago.

Our assist: Our brand of care is very personalized. We see where the needs are, and we reach to meet them. With Frances, our assist was multi-faceted. We paired her with a Glenmeadow staff member to accompany her to doctor’s appointments and offer guidance with necessary next steps. We frequently knock on Frances’ door to remind her about programming opportunities. We arranged for someone to help care for her cat, and we encourage Frances—an accomplished pianist—to play piano in our living room.

The result: As far away as they are, Andrew and Carolyn are sure their mother is safe and that staff are looking out for her 24/7. “We have peace of mind,” Andrew says. As Carolyn says, “My mother would prefer to still be living on her own, but knowing that this isn’t possible, she’s sure that Glenmeadow is the next best possible option.”
