Urban Excursion is FANASTIC!!
My Mom was diagnosis with dementia in early 2014 and I moved her into my home. My Mother had no interest in sitting around a Senior Center doing arts & crafts, she’s not one to sit around, and she likes to be out and about. I saw a T.V. advertisement for Urban Excursion and it sounded ideal for my mother. I called and spoke with Polly, who scheduled an appointment to come to my home and meet me & my mom I thought that was great! Once there she explain how & why she created Urban Excursion, and how the outing work, and that it was totally up to my mom on how often she wanted to attend the outing. And the fact that they came to the house to get her and would bring her home was a bonus too! Mom was excited and eager to attend. I mention my concern to Polly about my mom forgetting to lock my front door and she assured me that the staff would come to the door to pick her up and ensure that my door was locked and would walk her to the door on the return trip and make sure she was safely in the home. I was sold and I signed her up right on the spot! It has been an amazing experience for my mom, she absolutely loves the outing, and she goes twice a week.
Polly & Her staff are FANASTIC! Very caring & considerate of my mom & her needs, very kind and fun people my mom loves them! I also love the fact that they provide little snacks on their outing along with chairs & umbrellas, water, blankets all to ensure that the senior are comfortable on their outing regardless of the location or weather! And god bless Adam Hunter, my mother makes at least 15 calls call to him on a daily basis, and never once has he been anything other than kind & professional. Adam & Polly have assured me that they are used to this type of behavior and have come up with suggestion on how to cope & calm my mom anxiety.
I referred a co-worker whose father has similar issues as my mom and he now attends some of the outing with Urban Excursion and he loves it! In simple terms Urban Excursion has been a life saver for me! I highly recommend it to anyone who has a love one that doesn’t want to sit around, but wants to get out and still enjoy life…Urban Excursion does provide that Service!
