Homewatch CareGivers has always been sweet and fair, on time, and is thorough when taking notes. The caregivers who come in enjoy playing Scrabble with dad. That's his favorite game. He used to be a grumpy old man, but now lights up when Ashley walks in the room. If anyone can make him happy, they can make anyone happy!
