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 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”!
Professionalism…that’s what impressed me the most.
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.
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.
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!
All the caregivers I had were all excellent! What most impressed me was their experience and services. They were timely and showed kindness. Remy was an excellent example to use. She was super-excellent in all ways! —Ted R.
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.

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…
I was so impressed with the concern that AW caregivers had for me. They were very helpful in many areas and were very information with regard to my condition. Plus, they were friendly!
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.
