I am compelled to put in writing how much I appreciate the help you and your organization have provided for my mother. When she left the convalescent home a few months ago she couldn’t see herself living alone anymore. You and your staff came right in when she got home and filled every need she had. My mother has made a few good friends with those who help and I believe they have actually extended her life. She has told me that she could never make it without the help she receives.
