Testimonial: "Silverado gave us our Father back..."

"Silverado is a life saver for not only my father in-law but for the entire family. His journey to Silverado began in June 2015. That was when he lost his independence. Between the hospital stays and a ten week stint in rehab, it became apparent that he needed assistance when he was home. In the beginning, the family was able to take care of him. Eventually, we needed more help.

We hired a company that provided home health care. We were very unhappy with them, then we moved onto another home health care company. This company was very good. Unfortunately, after a few weeks he was back in the hospital and he would need 24-hour care. We did that for a couple of months. It soon became apparent that we needed to find a facility for him. He needed more care than we could provide. After another hospital stay he was released to a nursing home. After about four days we were told that we needed to find another place for him.

This is where Silverado came in.

The care and compassion and even love from the entire staff is amazing, and their patience I can't say enough about that. My Father-in-law was verbally abusive to the staff and his family for the first three weeks. After that, we saw a vast improvement in his personality and cognitive thinking. He now loves where he lives and is involved in some of the many activities offered. Silverado gave us our father back."
