Marian E. Burch Adult Day Care Compliment - A Need Fulfilled
BATTLE CREEK, MICHIGAN -- As the population of the world continues to age with growing needs, a bright lines shines in Calhoun County Michigan over the facility commonly referred to as Marian Burch. My mother has been attending Marian Burch for 5+ years. It was the last thing she thought she wanted to do, and it took some convincing for my brother and I to get her to agree to try it for a couple of days. My mother had gone from being vibrant and on her feet to wheelchair confinement following a stroke. From our first meeting with Chris Jenkins and her staff, I felt my mother would flourish. In less than a week, my mother was wanting to attend every day. Everything from the loving care of the staff, the arts and crafts and the dogs, continues to motivate my mom to get up at 6:00 A.M. in order to be ready when the van pulls up around 8:00 A.M. Not the weather or personal illness gets in the way of her anxiously awaiting the arrival of that van. Recently, at 86, she had hernia surgery. She had the pleasure of being able to convalesce at the Calhoun County Medical Care Facility that is adjacent to Marian Burch. I can't say enough about the staff and services they provided. My mom was discharged on a Wednesday and had plans of attending on Thursday. Of course, after a little battle she gave in and agreed to wait until the following Monday. My dad died recently - they would have been married 67 years in August. Had it not been for Marian Burch, I don't think we would have gotten through his unexpected death. Every town should have a Marian Burch for it's aging population as well as the family members who care for them. Of course, you'll need to find your own Chris and the incredibly caring staff she has put together. Thank you for Marian Burch for all you do and are.
