Jeanne is one of our oldest client’s. Not just because her age, but Jeanne has been utilizing Home Helpers services since June 2017. Jeanne is a spitfire. She’s an avid walker at the young age of 91. She is a very active individual. She attends plays, dinner theater, and museums. Jeanne loves the art of conversation. She has (led) a very colorful life ranging from singing with an orchestra as a young woman in California. Teaching piano, working, and going to school all while raising 5 children. She loves to ride trains, and took a train from Colorado to Los Angeles onto British Columbia and this was done with a friend in her seventies.
Jeanne came on board with us here at Home Helpers Westminster needing help with errands, transportation to appointments, taking her grocery shopping, and such as her eye sight has deteriorated. Mary Criblez is Jeanne’s primary caregiver. They have become quite good friends. When asked Jean what she likes about Mary this is what she had to say. They have great conversations, they communicate really well. They have great respect for each other. Mary is fun to be around, and Jeanne looks forward to their weekly outings.
Mary said of Jeanne she has a great sense of humor. She loves listening to stories from Jeanne’s past. Jeanne keeps Mary on her toes as Jeanne is a fast walker. They enjoy each other(‘s) company, and sharing what’s happening in their lives.
