My husband had late-stage Parkinson's and dementia when I started looking for care facilities for him. At first, I was looking at local assisted living/memory care facilities. I realized that the only way my husband would be allowed to live in one of them with his conditions was to have his own 24-hour caregiver living with him since all of them are so short-staffed. That would've cost me at least $20,000 a month. I'm sure they're fine for those not needing services, but my husband was a total fall risk and his dementia was getting worse. I really wanted to research local board and care homes, but I had no idea how to find one. I finally went on Nextdoor.com and asked if anyone knew of a good board and care home that would accept someone with Parkinson's and dementia. Quite a few people responded or sent me private messages to try and get into one of Maria Cantoria's Pacific Sunrise Homes because they were the best in our area. I called Maria and they had a private room available in one of their homes on Lomo Drive in Rancho Palos Verdes with Rachel Tuazon as the administrator. I drove up the next day and liked what I saw and put a deposit down for the room and planned on my husband moving in a couple of weeks later. Unfortunately, he fell downstairs and had to be hospitalized. When I found out when he was going to be released, I called to see if he could move in the next day right from the hospital. They said "yes." The room was large and fully furnished with a large screen TV, looking out through French doors to the patio. A couple of days after moving in, Rachel called to tell me that she had called paramedics because my husband was shaking in bed like he was having a seizure. She even sent me a video. He had aspiration pneumonia and stayed another day and a half in the hospital. When he got out, he had gone downhill even further. All of the caregivers at this home (Rachel and her husband Gerald, Gerald's sister Jackie and her husband John) took great care of him during his two-week stay before he passed away. I couldn't have asked for better round-the-clock caregivers. He was on hospice the last week, but the hospice nurses only were there the night before and the morning he passed because the caregivers at the home were able to do a lot of the care a hospice nurse would do. I was so happy that he passed away in such a loving home environment. I really want to thank those on Nextdoor who recommended Pacific Sunrise Homes and Maria Cantoria. For those looking for a good board and care home in our area, Maria can be reached at (310) 500-7223
