In the fall of 2012 I needed to find a residence that was a more appropriate fit for my father, and a church friend referred me to Pat Coomes. Pat met numerous times with my father, with me, and with the staff at my father’s facility, gathering information in order to research our options. With his knowledge and expertise, he was able to narrow down the search to three places for me to visit. After touring the three facilities, Pat and I talked through what would be the best residence for my father. Pat secured a place on the waiting list, and because of the relationships he has built, was in continuous contact with the admissions personnel to stay on top of openings. My father was admitted to our top choice on December 21, 2012, and I consider it a “Christmas miracle”! Pat continued to stay in touch with both my father and me to ensure that we were satisfied with our decision. My father passed on August 9, 2013, but he had the best quality of life possible during his remaining months thanks to Pat Coombs. I will always feel grateful and blessed that we were led to him and his calling.
