Beth & Sheldon Crystal
Our relationship with Qualicare was created out of a family crisis. Beth’s
mom Sara, a vibrant, intelligent and selfless woman was diagnosed with
ALS. Also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, ALS is a progressive neuromuscular
disease that renders one paralyzed over time. Sara’s one and only wish
was to remain in her home.
The family was determined to do whatever was necessary to comply with this
wish. With her background in Occupational Therapy, Beth was ready with
adaptive equipment to address physical limitations and to create a safe
and accessible environment in Sara’s home.
At a certain point Beth and her siblings realized that for Sara to remain
in her home, she would require more care. After much research we met with
Qualicare and were immediately impressed by the extent of their knowledge
and the depth of their interest and compassion. Through Qualicare we were
able to provide Sara 24 hour support, medical attention and comfort, allowing
Beth and her siblings to spend their time with Sara as her children rather
than her caregivers. Sara remained at home surrounded by the love of her family.
When Qualicare announced plans of their expansion, without a moment’s hesitation,
Beth and I knew that we were to be a part of this and had found our calling.
With Beth’s extensive rehabilitation experience, my business acumen, the
outstanding Qualicare principles backing us up and Sara’s exceptional
wisdom and strength propelling us forward, we are proud to provide care
to our clients.
