Seattle Couple Finds Safe and Comfortable Senior Home Care With Help From Fedelta

A Seattle couple was referred to Fedelta Care Solutions by a hospital social worker in response to the emergency placement of the 73-year-old husband at the hospital. He suffered from Parkinson's disease, complicated by pneumonia and mobility issues. This patient's 68-year-old wife, a retired RN with advanced Alzheimer's disease, had driven him to the local shopping center earlier that day and abandoned him there. Concerned shoppers at the mall called 911, and after taking the husband to the hospital, it took police over six hours to locate his wife and their car.

This incident was very concerning to the staff at the Seattle hospital, especially since this patient had not had a valid driver's license for over two years following her Alzheimer's diagnosis. Additionally, this patient had burnt down the couples previous home while she was trying to cook as her disabled husband slept. It was clear to everyone involved that this couple needed immediate placement in a safe, comfortable, and supportive environment.

Fedelta's Senior Housing Placement Specialist Helps Couple

One of our experienced Fedelta Care Solutions RN's immediately held a family conference with the couple and their children to assess their elder care needs. Based on the information provided by the family, police, and the hospital staff, our RN made an emergency referral to one of our Fedelta senior housing placement specialists in Seattle.

Working with the couple and their family, our senior care housing specialist found a great adult family home, where these Fedelta patients continue to live together in a couple's room. These patients now enjoy senior care while living in a beautiful home environment that is safe, and meets all their care needs. Both the couple and their children are very happy with their new Seattle home and the quick, comprehensive health care management response from Fedelta Care Solutions.
