Violet and granddaughter
Dad and I appreciate the services and support you have provided to us. Quite frankly, I don’t know what we would have done without your program.  It hasn’t been easy for either of us as we go about this new stage in our lives, but his being at home means so much to both of us. I cannot express the huge comfort their help brings in my knowing that they are there whenever they can be while I must be at work. Dad celebrated his 89th birthday in May---in the comfort of his own home---thanks to the daily care of the competent, caring and compassionate folks that you have arranged to help us. We both will always be totally grateful for this to you and CCCI.
