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 was most impressed by the rehab services I received at Fairwinds. The therapist, Matt, was so knowledgeable and caring while working with me.
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 therapist, Rose is just great! She wrote down everything for me and all the exercises. If I didn’t have her, I wouldn’t be able to move after my fall! She’s a great therapist!
I was most impressed with the experience of AW staff. —Don M.
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.
Everything was so great! I hated when it ended…
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!
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.
Your personal attention, desire to help and the highest professionalism impressed me the most. I trust AW caregivers as my close family and friends. Thank you.
