To whom it may concern,
The Diablo Valley Foundation for the Aging has been invaluable
in arranging, coordinating and managing the care and finances
for my aging parents. Without their services, it would be
impossible for my parents to maintain their standard of living,
at home, in familiar and comfortable surroundings.
Their services are excellent, complete and favorably priced.
They helped us with the full spectrum of care, from evaluating
my parents initially, through finding the best home caregivers
available, to actively managing my parents expenses and providing
ongoing case management (through frequent home visits and
care reviews). They also are very willing to accommodate any
requests, and go out of their way to assure care is complete.
Both my sister and I live out of the country, so having DVFA
on-site and actively involved in the care of my parents has
been invaluable to all of us. The peace-of-mind coming from
the knowledge that they are cared-for in the best possible
way is priceless.
When difficulties with my parents first became apparent, bringing
them overseas to live with us was our first thought. However,
it soon became impossible due to reasons surrounding their
physical health and mental capacities. I believe DVFA is the
next best choice to having them taken care of by family.
I highly recommend DVFA as your partner in the care for elderly
loved ones.......they shine above the rest.
I wish you the best of luck and success with your own situation
and hope that DVFA can help you as much as they have helped
I have been meaning to write for quite some time now and I'm
finally getting to it. We want to thank you and the staff
at the Diablo Valley Foundation for the wonderful help you've
given us in the care for my step-mother, Helen during the
last several years of her life. When she had to go into an
assisted care home we badly needed someone in Walnut Creek
who could not only give us advice on good homes but would
keep us informed as to her condition and any needs she may
This was particularly true when her mental facilities started
to deteriorate. Having a case worker assigned to her was greatly
appreciated. Another difficulty we had was trying to manage
her finances from Georgia, two thousand miles away. We needed
a local contact who could handle her expenses on a daily basis
and simply keep us informed of all the transactions. The Foundation
was able to perform these tasks efficiently and certainly
set our minds at ease concerning Helen's status.
Again, we want to thank you for all the help over the years.
I don't know how we could have assured Helen's well-being
