We're delighted that MG is there to take care of our mom. She's eating much better and having more regular interaction than we can provide.
I'm also very impressed with the level of service and attentiveness we've received from Simon. He's a great asset.
Today is CC's one year anniversary with my folks. I have to say that she is the most dedicated and competent person I've ever had the pleasure of knowing and working with. We are truly blessed to have her with us.
Wow, what a great group of wonderful people who do a great job! We have only been a client of Senior helpers for two weeks-what a difference in can make in a persons quality of life. Thank you Simon, Steve, Jamie, and Elaina.
