Our AW caregiver never fails to thank Mary Lou for a great day and a kiss to her forehead at the end of her shift. The AW caregiver has been a source of emotional support, honest opinions, and wise counsel whenever I need it, which is often. I look forward to the future, knowing that Mary Lou is in good hands. The AW caregiver has been a blessing in our life for which we are eternally grateful.
I think your agency is perfect the way it operates now. Change nothing. What most impressed me was the respect and care that I received. At all times the caregivers were excellent to both my husband and myself. They went out of their way to be accommodating. Thank you! —Katherine B.
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!
I am so pleased that my skilled facility called AW Health Care again for me! My OT is Catherine and she is wonderful. She is always a few minutes early which I love, and she always calls when she says she will to schedule her visits. I also really like Donna, my nurse. Donna is so funny and a joy to talk with!
My experience with AW Health Care was incredible! I would like to especially compliment Natalya R. for advocating so well for my mom. I don’t know what I would have done without her. Natalya is the reason I could rest easy knowing what good care she was providing for my mom.
My home health nurses, Rose and Donna are some of the sweetest people I have ever dealt with. I have never had home healthcare before but these two ladies made it a wonderful experience. They are “Top of the Line Ladies”!
AW Health Care is the best service we have ever experienced. We had three other nursing services and sent all three away. —Elizabeth C.
My nurse, Charley, is just great! I had her before! If I ever need home health again, I’m calling AW!
As a child of a father who fought cancer, I deeply appreciate the value of the services provided by AW Healthcare.
I want you to know that our AW nurse’s follow-through is “lightning quick” and most thorough. I have every confidence in her, and felt immediately comfortable with her. Your wonderful nurses are the best representatives your company could have. I live out of state, but am so much more comfortable about leaving now that my grandmother has had such good care and has made such amazing progress. She is 103 years old, and in pretty good shape. But after such a terrible fall, she would not hav…
