Care Available 24 Hours a Day, 7 Days a Week.
Dear Peter, I want to let you know how much I appreciate office staff, home health aides, you. First, there is Jo. She is a real dear and very competent, effective in doing her job. . She’s been very helpful to us, assisting with care plan update, checking in with us on caregivers and Roger’s needs. When I have to call on a weekend, or you have to call me, I think about how hard your work is because of the 24/7 responsibility. I sincerely appreciate all your help.
