To Whom It May Concern:

Ginger Bronson worked for me for almost six years, taking care of my elderly mother.  I would highly recommend Ginger as a caregiver.  Ginger has many fine qualities that make her an excellent choice.  I believe Ginger to be honest, caring and intelligent.  She was always conscious of my mother’s needs and was always coming up with ideas to make my mother’s life better.  As my mother began failing, Ginger invented and made a restraint that would not allow my mother to fall out of bed or her wheelchair.  Older people need a calm environment, and I was impressed with the environment Ginger provided for my mother.  Ginger herself is a calm person, and the beautiful, restful, soft music that was always playing made for a wonderful atmosphere.  Ginger even purchased some CD’s that she thought my mother would like.  Before Ginger came, my mother was having to take a sedative several times a week for her agitation, but after Ginger began caring for her, she rarely had to take any medication.

I have found many caregivers to be unreliable at times.  Ginger, on the other hand, was a person I knew I could always depend on.  She was always respectful of the delicate furnishings in my mother’s home as well.  I soon came to realize that I could leave her in charge and never have to worry.

After my mother passed away, Ginger on her own time stayed and helped me.  She arranged all of the displays for the funeral as well as putting together a beautiful professional video with music.

I will forever be grateful to Ginger for all that she did for my mother and me.
