Testimonials from Clients

Kathleen McDonald Tompkins

My Mom has been cared for at Halina’s since April, 2011. We have found the owners to be considerate, thoughtful and responsible people who work effectively and with a caring attitude, with our family. My Mom’s current caregiver, Ceasar, has been an excellent person to work with. He takes very good care of our Mom and coordinates her care and ensures a quality of living that gives us peace of mind. He emails pictures of Mom with other residents and keeps us up to date on her daily living. When health challenges have come up, everyone at Halina’s, particularly Ceasar, have responded with urgency and efficiency.

Mom enjoys seeing Zoe, a therapy dog that visits plus the art class and exercise group. Halina’s owners are always open to considering new experiences for their residents. The house is always neat and clean, and the atmosphere is uplifting and pleasant. Families feel comfortable spending as much time as they want with their loved ones. Ceasar keeps the pace going, and always has a smile for everyone. I would recommend Halina’s to any family that is looking for a family-based alternative to nursing homes or excessively priced assisted living choices.

The care my dad has received has been excellent. He is in a wheelchair and needs care on a 24 hour basis and the staff is there to provide that care and concern. Since I live out of state, the owner, Dan, always keeps me up to date on dad’s doctor visits and his “day-to-day”.

What I like so much is that without Halina’s, my dad would likely be in a nursing home. This is a true home which is a comfort to my dad and to me.

Halina’s is a very special place, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about its owners (who are kind, caring, dedicated people) or its caregiver staff, who provide emotional and physical support, not to mention a very loving atmosphere for the residents in their homes. We moved my 91-year old mother there in May, 2014 because she needed more care than could be provided to her on a consistent basis at the supportive living facility she’d been living at. Her memory was deteriorating, and so was her ability to assist in self-care. But a nursing home placement was NOT what we wanted for her. And then we were referred to Halina’s. The home is immaculately clean, comfortable, home-like. My mom is treated with such kindness and respect by the caregivers, who attend to her every need with a great, positive attitude and sense of humor. My mom LOVES the home-made meals they cook for the residents. She has a bright, spacious bedroom filled with her personal items and clothing. The caregivers help her to dress and even to apply makeup. And when my mom needed some dental care, the owner PERSONALLY drove her to his family dentist for treatment, after checking with me to see if it would be ok. Everyone there goes above and beyond to make sure the residents enjoy a good quality of life. And they have SUCH PATIENCE! The review only lets you give 5 stars, but I would gladly give 100 stars to this care facility.

My mother has lived in a Halinas resident for six months. We have had a very positive experience with her care both by the caregivers and the healthcare staff that come in for services. My mother is always fed home cooked meals, and is always very clean and tidy. My family would highly recommend anyone considering full-time adult home care for their elderly loved one to use one of the Halina homes.

I would highly recommend Halina’s to anyone whose parent is no longer able to care for themselves. My Mother has been a resident since May 2014 and she is receiving excellent 24-hour care. We investigated many facilities prior to moving Mom and none compared to the level of personalized care Halina’s provides. We are confident Mom is in very capable, caring hands and the entire family has felt a great sense of relief since moving her to Halina’s.

My brother has M.S. and has great difficulty walking (he needs help transferring, showering, etc.) He stayed at Halina’s for almost four months and received excellent care and individualized attention there. He had a bright, cozy private room, enjoyed wonderful hot, home-cooked meals every day, and had 24-hour care (whenever necessary). He really enjoyed the couple who took care of him–they were kind, gentle, considerate, and personable. My brother has issues, yet his caretakers were infinitely patient and compassionate. Halina’s did its utmost to make my brother feel at home during a difficult time–Halina’s took him in when he was in desperate need of physical attention. We will be forever grateful to Dan Migo, its director, who went way out of his way to promptly respond to my brother’s needs and requests, and to consistently make him feel as comfortable as he possibly could. Dan oversaw my brother’s care and made certain that he was always very well cared for. He picked up prescriptions for my brother, checked in on him regularly, helped install a special tv, gave him a barcalounger and an electric hospital bed to use, and was always just a phone call away. Once, during a downpour on a Sunday, Dan drove my brother to an ear specialist because my brother was having difficulty hearing. Halina’s is located in a very pretty residential neighborhood with wheelchair accessibility to a nice deck outside and windows that opened for fresh air. Wifi and cable included. 5 stars!
