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.
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.
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.
AW Health Care went above and beyond by calling my doctors to get my medications changed. —LuVerne W.
My therapist was awesome- knowledgeable and helpful.
As a child of a father who fought cancer, I deeply appreciate the value of the services provided by AW Healthcare.
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!
Natalya is fabulous! Roycelain (PD aide) is the best health worker we’ve ever had! —Norma S.
