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.
I was most impressed by the rehab services I received at Fairwinds. The therapist, Matt, was so knowledgeable and caring while working with me.
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!

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.
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.
