WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Janie was like family

My husband was diagnosed with Parkinson's back in 2012. In 2021 we hired Janie McCourt to stay with Ken at night while I visited my daughter and her family in Michigan. Without my requesting it, Janie gave me regular reports on how Ken was doing which was very reassuring to me. She was also the perfect companion for my husband. He is a retired college professor with a dry sense of humor, and he really appreciated Janie's communication skills, positive disposition and ability to kid with him. She is well educated in the sciences (my husband's field) and also has many years of care giving and hospice experience, which is demonstrated by her practical ideas for solving problems and her compassion and respect for her patients and their families. We used Janie's services for two different trips that I took and then in the spring of 2023 hired her to work for us three nights a week to give me some respite while I renovated a new home for us to 

live in. 

 

Both Ken and I enjoyed having Janie in our home. She was always fun to talk with and had interesting facts and stories to share. By the time she left she had become like family. We were very comfortable in her presence and just really looked forward to the "ray of sunshine" that she had become in our lives. 

We feel that any family that chooses to hire Janie as a caregiver will be very pleased that they made that choice. We were very sorry to see her leave Colorado, but happy for her future clients in Arizona.

Kind and Compassionate

It is my pleasure to write a letter of recommendation for Janie Weaver McCourt. She was the caregiver for my oldest brother when he decided it was time to cease all medical intervention and begin the care of hospice. Janie, from beginning to end, was so kind and 

compassionate to my brother Larry and with all of our family members and friends. During the time she cared for him she became like one of the family. Her presence allowed my brother to feel safe and comfortable in the surroundings of his own home. Her skills are remarkable and always mindful in relation to my brother's cognitive decline. She was patient and observant with all of us when situations became difficult to handle and communicated in such a fashion to keep us calm and at peace. Janie's positive attitude and spirited personality made her a joy to work with. I would highly recommend her talents as she is more than a caregiver, she is an 

angel that gives her whole heart and soul to help others. I am very confident that you will be happy with her talent and skills as we were.

Trustworthy - Cheerful  Compassionate

Janie took care of my mother for three years and was compassionate, 

trustworthy, and always cheerful. She started as a caregiver, but quickly became a 

friend to Mom and our whole family. I would highly recommend her to anyone 

needing a caregiver.

Excellent Elder Care

We strongly recommend Janie McCourt for elderly home care. She worked 

for us for about 18 months, taking care of our father for about a year (while also 

helping our mother) and then taking care of our mother for about six months. Elder care is not just another job for Janie. She is clearly passionate about her work. To her it's not just elder care, but rather creating an optimal environment for each client's particular needs and adjusting as those needs change. She made great home-cooked meals to feed our parents, and she read to them, helped with their exercise, did housekeeping, helped with the garden, and simply worked to make those difficult last months that our parents were in their home the best months they could be. 

Janie was flexible with her time and she planned ahead so that when our parents needed more intense care, she was available for overnight and 24-hour care shifts. One final thing we will mention is that Janie helped make holidays and events like 

birthdays just a bit more special. She made special food, brought a new dessert, or put out special place settings. To us this demonstrated just how much she cared for our parents. 

We feel so fortunate that we found Janie to help care for our parents, and we 

strongly recommend her for your elder-care needs.
