fall-leavesNew Outlook Homecare, LLC, under the direction of Pearly Evans, provides excellent homecare and caregiving services.

I became acquainted with Pearly as she regularly helps clients residing in Traditions of Dedham, Massachusetts, where my aunt went to live for the almost last two years of her life, from age 88 to 90.  Initially my aunt was independent, but as she weakened after two hospital and short rehab stays, she required oxygen, and after 4 months, she was on oxygen 24/7. With the use of oxygen, in-room care was required. I hired Pearly to be my aunt’s in-room caretaker for about 8 to 12 hours a day at the outset. Ultimately, New Outlook Homecare, LLC was with my aunt 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for months on end – in her studio apartment at Traditions.

My aunt was very particular, but she seemed to bond quickly with Pearly. It became a reciprocal friendship, a bond that only became deeper over time. She relied on Pearly and her staff for the most basic simple activities and needs of daily life, which they provided with no hesitation.  Even when Pearly was not with her 24/7 at the outset, she kept an eye out for my aunt to make sure everything was ok. This was vital for me living in New York to know that my aunt was properly cared for. They treated her with respect from Day 1, a posture that was always consistent, no matter how difficult the situation could be.

Staffing and training for New Outlook Homecare, LLC:

Pearly and her staff are dedicated, compassionate, and well trained. They interact very well with Traditions staff when needed. When my aunt went on in-room hospice care in October 2015, hospice determined what medication was required and hospice nurses came in as needed.  But it was really Pearly and her staff who kept a close eye on my aunt –flagging any issues, reaching out to the hospice care provider when needed, and even made sure medications were up to date and re-ordered on a regular basis. My aunt had a long decline and they were with her every step of the way. Even as her medications became more complex, they were trained and equipped to handle this.

Close ties:

My aunt also became very close to another New Outlook Homecare caretaker, Rachel.  Between the two of them with my aunt daily, they have been a lifeline. They are kind, compassionate people, who truly love the elderly, and help them achieve as much dignity as possible. Pearly also is always upbeat and vibrant, and whose humor had my aunt cracking up. Pearly, Rachel and the other caretakers were a true comfort to my aunt. Pearly and Rachel would hold my aunt’s hand, never let my aunt out of their sight, watching for subtle changes or indications of discomfort, and just being with her, up until the very end in early November 2016.  I can honestly say they are God’s angels.

Hersheys Kiss

Reflecting on 2011 has left me with joyful tears and a big smile.

What a great year 2011 was for us at New Outlook. We continued to work hard to meet all of our clients’ needs quickly and efficiently, and we received from our clients so much appreciation for our caregivers. “Pearly’s Girls” have proven themselves to be dependable, dedicated, reliable and competent as they diligently carry out their duties.

While New Outlook continues to grow, we strive to remain trusted and accessible to all. We would like to say “Thank You” for opening your hearts, homes and families to us.

It is our goal for 2012 and beyond to continue to earn your trust.

 As our tagline says: “You need care, we’ll be there”

On a personal note, I am proud to have joined the New Outlook team in 2011 and to be a part of this group of wonderful and dedicated caregivers. I have learned so much working with founder and CEO, Pearly Evans and meeting so many of our clients and potential clients. Thank you all for the kind words and the suggestions you have offered us- it’s all very much appreciated.

I’m looking forward to many more years with New Outlook!

Michele Davis,

Marketing Director

A Night to Remember

New Outlook and Traditions of Dedham celebrated a Night to Remember on New Year’s Eve at Traditions. While everyone sipped their champagne and enjoyed the hors d’oeuvres, feet were tapping to the entertainment by the The Susan McLeod Orchestra of One.

The mood was engaging and joyful as all waited patiently to begin the countdown to the New Year. Everyone made sure to enjoy at least one (Hershey’s) Kiss to welcome in 2012.

May 2012 brings good health and happiness, laughter and joy, and peace within the walls of your home. Remember that February is American Heart Month, so take good care of yourself.
