To whom It May concern:
My husband had been sick with multiple medical problems for years, but a fall and a stroke forced him to become bed bound. After various medical evaluations, we decided to care for him at home. I turned to We Care 4 Yolo because of a personal reference I had been given about this group. I was immediately impressed with the energy and ease of communicating with the management team . Within hours, Kelli introduced me to an experienced caregiver who could work a 12 - hour night shift for that night. Kelli helped me put together a team of excellent caregivers who worked all the nights and the day hours that I requested. Each of these caregivers was skilled, reliable, honest, and wonderfully compassionate in their unique way. My husband needed help with eating and drinking, diapers, and bed baths. He also needed to have two bed sores watched, frequent changes of position and some range of motion exercises. As his abilities declined and the visiting nurse suggested that Hospice Services should be considered, these experienced caregivers were able to answer my questions and concerns about changing to Hospice. They provided companionship for my husband and emotional support for me. The day time caregiver was also an excellent housekeeper – always looking for ways to help with cleaning, laundry, cooking, and shopping as well as helping my husband. In the course of one month these caregivers became like members of the family. When my husband passed away, both the management team and the caregivers continued to reach out to me to offer encouragement. My husband was able to stay with me at home and was more comfortable during his last weeks because of these caregivers. I could never have made it through this stressful and very sad time period without the help of We Care 4 Yolo. Thank you
We Care 4 Yolo!

Hospice Client TesI am writing to express my gratitude and appreciation for you and staff. When I needed a caregiver to be in my home, and with my mom while I was working, I searched online and found your organization on a caregiving website. I liked that your organization was local. I left a message, and you returned my call within a few hours. Within a couple days you met with me to discuss our families’ needs and inquire about what my mom needed most. The two experienced caregivers you sent to spend the days with my mom were friendly, kind and caring. I had no doubt that I could trust them as soon as they walked in my front door. I appreciated the extra attention you all gave my mom, such as bringing her favorite meals for lunch. In hindsight, what I appreciate even more was the time you spent with me. The experience you shared about being a caregiver to your grandparents in the past inspired me to trust you. This was my first experience providing care for a parent, and you were there to listen, provide insight and recommendations. Thank you, thank you thank you!

Testimonial from Alta Regional Client (Adult with disabilities)
It is my privilege to recommend WeCare4Yolo as an agency for Home Health Care. In the last 8 months, they have taken impeccable care of my brother in his home on a 24/7 schedule. As a conservator and a sister, the company has been extremely trustworthy and compassionate for my brother. I have worked with numerous agencies the last 13 years for his 24/7 care and I have never been so extremely appreciative with the agencies accomplishments/care for my brother as well as their dedication and responsibility to the needs of staff. They are the definition of Consumer Driven and Person Centered Care. My brother is 66 years old, partially paralyzed, and uses a gait belt or wheelchair for ambulation. He is developmentally disabled with a brain injury at 2 years old resulting in at times severe behavioral issues. He needs ALL direct care skills for daily living, medication administration, shopping, doctor appointments, household maintenance, dietary needs/meal preparation, personal outings in the community, and constant adherence to his behavioral issues/safety requiring constant redirecting by staff due to his developmental disability. When WeCare4Yolo was hired 8 months ago, my brother was depressed and had suffered numerous physical injuries resulting from behavioral episodes. WeCare4 Yolo has taken an active role in his behavioral therapy and owners have engaged staff by attending weekly meetings to further my brother’s positive behavioral daily life changes. The agency’s (owners) interactive abilities with staff and my brother have not only promoted these positive changes but also encouraged the strong work ethic with their staff by modeling the integrity of the company. My brother has not been healthier physically and mentally for more than 2 years. He is enjoying his daily activities and wishes to engage in his previous daily life experiences again; and, his behavioral outbursts have diminished tremendously. He has already been able to “actively choose/engage” again in social needs/wants on a daily basis. Using a variety of strategies designed by the Team, staff are engaging my brother in self-directed activities of his choice. They are encouraging him at all times throughout the day and work diligently with strategies for negative behaviors. Staff are extremely result/solution oriented tailoring to my brother’s services and supports needed daily through communication with the agency and family. Transmission of daily occurrences is done with written notes for incoming staff members as well as documentation of direct care needs daily. In closing, WeCare4Yolo shows not only the consumer but their staff the great dedication of their company’s mission statement: Integrity, Kindness, Dependability, and Respect. I have been a conservator for my brother for 47 years and I have never worked with an agency displaying the confidence and transparency of a team-oriented approach to care between Agency, Staff, and Family. Without reservation, the demonstration of sincere professional responsibility allows me the pleasure to recommend WeCare4Yolo to any family/person desiring a confident, approachable, and instrumental company for a family member. Sincerely, Kristine Hulse
