I have never had anyone in other institutions give me the caring, compassionate, professional, dedicated services that AW Healthcare has rendered me. I want you to know how much I appreciate it.
My caregivers were great…I could not have stayed at home if not for your help. Thank you! —Wanda B.
I believe that the remarkable progress and recovery of my 91-year old mother after hip replacement surgery, even with some post-operation complications, are largely due to the professional and caring services of your visiting personnel. The nurse, physical therapist, and other health care providers were top-notch. I feel we owe them more gratitude than I can express here. God bless them all.
AW Health Care is the best service we have ever experienced. We had three other nursing services and sent all three away. —Elizabeth C.
Professionalism…that’s what impressed me the most.
We sincerely thank you for the good care you provided us! We will miss our cheerful face and lovely smile! Much thanks!
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”!
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.
First and most impressive was the quality and professionalism of the personnel which was sent to assist in Rose Mary’s recovery. It would be difficult to pick a favorite as they were all outstanding in addressing the challenges of their task. The results are above our expectations.
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.
