Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
When I first met Cortrice Pitts, I knew she was an exceptional person who has proven to be trustworthy, reliable, competent & compassionate. She handles our clients struggling with pain, Dementia & end of life issues with "tender loving care". This past year, we've laughed, rejoiced & cried together. As our CareGiver of the Month in 2/09 & 9/09 & our 2009 CareGiver of the Year, we congratulate and thank Cortrice for making a positive difference in the lives of our clients & their families.
