Care Providers: Three Musketeers

Posted by Eskaton on Nov 2, 2015 2:12:12 AM

Eskaton is proud of the Home Healthcare staff led by Marilyn Kirby. Marilyn received this letter on October 24, 2015:

I am writing this letter to praise three of your best care providers. Their names are Danica (RN), Liz (PT), and last but certain not the least is Melanie (OT). I call these three care providers my three musketeers, nothing is going to stop them from their appointed duty.

Danica was there from day one. She took care of my ulcerated foot. She took care of all my health needs in a very professional matter. Her kindness and caring got me thru this rollercoaster ride I’ve been on and it hasn’t stopped. My foot doctor, praised the work Danica had done...

Liz was my task master, she helped me get thru the pain. I call her my task master because she was always here to cheer me on. When I was sure I couldn’t do the exercises that I needed to do so I could make it thru my next surgery. She would say let’s see how far you can make it. Low and behold she had me out of my wheelchair and walking with the walker about 40 ft.

Melanie is a blessing as she started with me in the beginning. She helped me to strength my arms and get around the house with the wheelchair. She left after a short stay because I had weight restrictions, no weight bearing on my left leg. She was kind enough to come back when the restrictions were lifted. She is now helping me take a shower at least twice a week. She helped me have my first shower in nine months, that was the best shower I’ve ever had. She has and still is my personal angel...
