I first met Sonja when she and my daughter attended college together at UWEC. She is one of the most genuine caring individuals that I know. When she and her husband Brett decided to start their homecare business, I confidently referred her to a friend of mine, who was looking for in home care for her father who was suffering at the time from Lewy Body Dementia, and Parkinson’s. My friend and her family members felt at ease with Sonja and were appreciative and impressed by the level of care and compassion that she and her team delivered to their dad/husband.

Earlier this year, my own father was terminally ill with cancer. We had him at in home hospice, and between my mom, myself and my two brothers we were caring for him and keeping him comfortable. When we realized that the overnight care was more than we could manage, I contacted Sonja. She was quick to arrange for overnight care, and within hours we had a schedule/plan in place. The following night, Lesa arrived at 8:00 pm, she immediately put my mom and I at ease. She took an assessment of my dad, got his bedding “just so”, asked my mom and I all the necessary questions to acquaint herself. She contacted the hospice nurse to further familiarize herself with my dad’s prognosis. I was able to go home and get some sleep, my mom was able to retreat to her bedroom to get some much needed rest. When my mom got up in the morning, Lesa had written detailed notes for my mom and the hospice nurse, laundry was folded, and my dad was resting comfortably. Later that day my dad passed away, peacefully surrounded by our family. We all felt that my dad was cared for on that last night by an angel, her name was Lesa.

For the past six months, Sonja and her staff have provided part time in home care for my mother and father in law. It was difficult convincing them to accept outside help. They are kind of old school, and like to do things for themselves, not to mention trusting a stranger to come into their home. They started out by having Sonja come for a half day once per week and are now up to two times per week. They are seeing the benefits of having some assistance with baths, medication management, doctor appointments, light housekeeping, a hot meal, and the occasional home baked pie or cake. When we stop over to visit with them on the weekends, they have nothing but compliments and fun tidbits of information to share with us about Sonja and her staff.

I had no idea when Sonja and Brett set out on this business venture that I would personally have reason to require their services. As I mentioned above, I trust them whole heartedly and appreciate them every day.

When our mother suffered a fall on her 90th birthday, it became apparent that she would no longer be able to live alone.  Some relatives pointed us in the direction of Beyond Expectations.  We met with the principals and formulated a plan to have constant care for our mother.  

The care provided by Beyond Expectations has indeed been the best that we could hope for.  The team consists of talented and caring individuals.  It has been about a year since we began service.  They have coordinated doctor visits, transportation providers, physical and occupational therapists, etc.  They procure and provide excellent nutritious meals.  They make sure that all medications are administered in the right dosages at the right time.

 

Over the past year, they have become good friends who we can count on and are pleasant to be around.  To be able to trust that your loved ones are being taken care of so competently gives us a sense of freedom that is beyond compare.

Simply put, the team at Beyond Expectations Home Health Care offers the best care you could ever hope for and beyond! My husband suffered a massive stroke, came home after six months in rehab, but in need of 24 hour care—and I work full time.  Beyond Expectations HHC worked with us to set a schedule of care when I am not at home, and take care not only of my husband, but our whole family (including our dog) by taking care of all the necessities so we can focus on our family.  Laundry, meal planning, grocery shopping, medication management, transportation, and errands are just a few of the things they do. 

 

Most importantly, their positive, caring approach has helped Mike tremendously in making gains every day.  They not only attend his outside therapy sessions, but they participate, ask questions and practice all the therapy at home with him.  Mike’s occupational therapist raved about Sonja and said she could easily be a therapist!  Mike looks forward to their companionship every day. 

 

The ability to go to work and leave Mike in such exceptional care is beyond what we could have hoped for and we thank God for the peace of mind they have gifted to us. Thank you!!
