I would HIGHLY recommend CareWeavers!! The help that I received from them has absolutely been invaluable!! If you need guidance with caring for an elderly parent or family member and you are not sure where to turn regarding facilities and ongoing care, please call CareWeavers in Charlotte. They are wonderful! I can’t say enough great things about this company. Cindy’s knowledge of the ever changing healthcare system is remarkable. She is compassionate and caring and helps take a lot of stress off your shoulders.
Care Weavers was invaluable in assisting me and my family when my mother suffered a stroke. I very quickly had to make numerous medical, financial and emotional decisions regarding my mother’s care needs. The Care Weavers team provided knowledgeable, personalized and expedient support throughout the progression of my mother’s illness. They researched and visited rehab and nursing facilities with me and helped make sense of quality scores and outcomes. I would highly recommend their services.
A wrap around service like yours is exactly what we need in healthcare. Care Weavers’ coordination of the many aspects of the care continuum to support our aging community is invaluable.
I am an avid tri-athlete. After a neck injury, I had seen an orthopedic surgeon who recommended extensive surgery that would have required 6-9 months rehabilitation. Care Weavers researched my injury and with their guidance, helped me obtain a second opinion from a physician who was interested in understanding my needs and goals. I had a successful less invasive out-patient surgical procedure that had me back to my training schedule in two months and competing in six. I am grateful for their expertise and services!
There aren’t enough words or accolades I could give to Care Weavers for their help with my mom. Their knowledge and expertise were only surpassed by their care and compassion. I HIGHLY recommend them.
My senior mother is diagnosed with multiple co-occurring disorders that cause her a great deal of pain, and confusion. Compounding the situation, she was hospitalized for 13 days. The treatment plan alone is a lot to take in. Add to that, trying to organize the opinions of multiple specialists, moms emotional/mental state, and trying to take care of my own family, I quickly became overwhelmed. Enter Cindy from Care Weavers. I don’t think I could have survived this weekend without her expertise, assistance, and ability to navigate a complicated hospital stay. Without hesitation, I highly recommend her service should you find yourself into the position of caring for an aging loved one.
