AW Health Care is the best service we have ever experienced. We had three other nursing services and sent all three away. —Elizabeth C.
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. Your wonderful nurses are the best representatives your company could have. 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…
The whole AW Home Health Team was fantastic. Bryan and Lalit were very compassionate and understanding. They are the #1 reason that my mom improved as much as she did. I could not have been more satisfied.
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.
I was most impressed by the rehab services I received at Fairwinds. The therapist, Matt, was so knowledgeable and caring while working with me.
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.
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.
