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.
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.
Professionalism…that’s what impressed me the most.
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 mom and dad are in their 90s, physically frail but mentally alert and often somewhat challenging to deal with. Your team of professionals treated mom and dad with dignity, care and respect for which my family is very grateful.
We are so grateful that Natalya T. picked up on Al’s heart problem. She is a very dedicated nurse, a lovely compassionate personality that truly makes her a very special person. You are blessed to have such a person in your employment. The nurse from the doctor’s office arranged for us to be served by AW Health Care…and that was the beginning of our blessings. Thank you!
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 am very satisfied with my two wonderful therapists. They were so warm, and so professional…like a friend or a part of the family. Their help is greatly appreciated.
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”!
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.
