My mother was a client at the Evergreen Center for close to a year. It is a wonderful facility with a skilled and compassionate staff. I have been very involved with my mother’s participation there and I view the staff like extended family. They genuinely cared about my mother’s health and well-being and have been a major support system for us during our journey through Alzheimer’s. The staff is very upbeat and my mother loved them. She called it, “ her happy place.” I dropped Mom off and picked her up each day so I got to know the staff individually and they kept me informed about how she was doing. They keep them active mentally and physically . Mom liked the social hour, singing and the snacks the best. As she became more agitated in the afternoon, I had to pick her up earlier. She was becoming disruptive so it was better for her to go home when she was so anxious. The more actively involved you, as a caregiver, are with the program, the more it benefits you and your loved one. My mom has passed on but so am still in touch with the staff. I will continue to attend the Caregivers Support meetings. The Evergreen Center is one of Delaware’s hidden gems.
