As an only child with two young children and aging parents to care for, I am fortunate to have found the Palolo Chinese Home Adult Day Care program. Being a full-time caregiver to young children and elderly parents has been challenging and often exhausting. I appreciate that the day care is open seven days a week as it has allowed me to do fun, educational and recreational activities with my children, all the while knowing that my parents are well cared for. The facilities at Palolo are clean and safe, and the staff members are cheerful and genuinely care about my parents. When my father passed away last year, they were kind enough to reminisce with me and shared their own memories of him -- it made me feel as though they thought of him as part of their family too. My mother, who suffers from Alzheimer's, continues to attend the program daily. She has found comfort in the routine and feels safe with the staff. They have supported her since my father passed away and even play hanafuda with her -- something that she looks forward to!
