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.

My therapists, Millie and Kim, are the best people I have ever met! They were exceptional, and I owe my good health to both of them.
