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 was most impressed with the physical therapy. My therapist was Matt. He informed me of everything he was going to do. —Norma W.
The most important thing is that by having the medical care, cleaning and transportation provided by AW Healthcare at my home, I don’t have to change anything! I have the energy to truly focus on things that bring me happiness.
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!
