Could not have survived without her
The staff of Fort Walton Medical Hospital recommended Independent Living Services, Inc. to us. My wife was always in good health and very capable. When she fell ill she was not the same and we knew we would need help from others. She is a very proud woman and did not like strangers in her home.
Tena Scallan send several employees for us to meet and they all made us feel very comfortable. All the employees were very knowledgeable, caring and organized. They came in before my wife was released from the hospital and cleaned the whole house, did all the laundry and cooked several meals and froze them for my wife and me. When she got home, they were very attentive to her needs: they assisted her while walking, prepared and assisted with her meals, and ran errands for us. They made us feel as if we known them our whole lives, made us feel like family.
I could not have survived without her and her great staff. They cared for us for approximately 2 months for 8 hours a day 7 days a week. Now they assist us when needed, I use the service about 3 times a week for 3-4 hours per day. Tena and her staff are very caring and organized and being in the military that meant a lot.
I even purchased her book “The Ultimate Compassionate Guide to Caregiving”. The book helped me immensely when they were not around, it taught me how to transfer my wife from the bed to the toilet and it was loaded with a lot of helpful information. We would highly recommend Independent Living Services, Inc., Tena and her staff to anyone.
