My therapists, Millie and Kim, are the best people I have ever met! They were exceptional, and I owe my good health to both of them.
AW Health Care went above and beyond by calling my doctors to get my medications changed. —LuVerne W.
Aging Well far-exceeded what I could find or get elsewhere, especially based on the level of dedication and caring given by both aides and nurses. They provided consistent support, on-time, and with a fairly consistent team really helped us manage my dad’s dementia. They genuinely cared about him, even in spite of some of his challenges.
Natalya is fabulous! Roycelain (PD aide) is the best health worker we’ve ever had! —Norma S.
I want to give my special thanks to the AW nurses for their tender loving care for both Barry and mom. They were wonderful! I want to also thank you social worker for helping us understand some aspects of what to expect and for clearing u some questions we had. Thanks to all.
We are so grateful that Natalya T. picked up on Al’s heart problem. She is a very dedicated nurse, a lovely compassionate personality that truly makes her a very special person. You are blessed to have such a person in your employment. The nurse from the doctor’s office arranged for us to be served by AW Health Care…and that was the beginning of our blessings. Thank you!
As a child of a father who fought cancer, I deeply appreciate the value of the services provided by AW Healthcare.
I was most impressed with the experience of AW staff. —Don M.
My therapist, Rose is just great! She wrote down everything for me and all the exercises. If I didn’t have her, I wouldn’t be able to move after my fall! She’s a great therapist!
We sincerely thank you for the good care you provided us! We will miss our cheerful face and lovely smile! Much thanks!
