"The nurses, therapists that treated my wife were, in our opinion, the best at their positions.  All were very caring and built up my wife's self-confidence.  They deserve recognition."  Donald Grinnell

"Words cannot describe how wonderful and positive my PT was.  She set me up for success and a speedy recovery.  Every session was both difficult and rewarding.  She holds your hand through these tough times and guides you on a path to true wellness.  I wish I could hire her full time as my life coach!"  Scott Shepard

"The Visiting Nurse Services provides both human compassion and technical skill. One without the other is useless."

"Having home health care was such a comfort to me and my husband. It can be very scary to be a patient, sick at home, or the caregiver with no one to consult when new issues or questions arise. Without a visiting nurse the alternative is to wait and worry or return to the Emergency Room, neither of which is good for recovery. VNS bridged an important gap for me between hospitalization and feeling better at home."

"My nurse’s advice was so helpful! I was really impressed. If she had not come to see me at home, I would not have known that great information. She was very thorough and spent as much time as I needed to listen to my concerns and answer all types of questions I had about my baby."

"Our family wish to extend our most sincere thanks for the professional, reliable and compassionate care you provided to our Mom – making it possible for her to remain in the comfort of her own home this past year…Mom’s care under VNS homecare and later under hospice was impressive."

"I wanted to take the opportunity to let you know what a wonderful experience my father had with your physical therapist. From the start Linda was professional, kind and friendly, taking a lot of time with Dad, who is 82 years old. She put him through his paces in an encouraging and supportive way….I believe Linda was instrumental in his quick recovery helping him in his goal of getting back on the golf course."

"Your staff was absolutely wonderful and professional during my husband’s recent surgery. Our nurse Carol, physical therapist Noni, and telehealth nurses Claire and Joanne were simply amazing. Having such caring, supportive people come to our home to help us through this time was exactly what we needed. We’ll miss their home visits and calls but know this means progress has been made. Many thanks to those ‘angels’ – you have dedicated professionals on your staff."

"The hospice nurses who visited my mother not only gave her the very best and kindest care, but were also her advocates so she could die with dignity and according to her wishes. She was comforted, while remaining in familiar surroundings… Your Hospice nurses, aides, and wonderful chaplain were all gently guiding me through, helping me with information, listening, and suggesting ways I could support my mother in her journey. I certainly miss my mother but I feel that we came through together to the place she wanted and needed to be. I could not have steered this course without the steady support of the Hospice team."

"I had several visits at home following my knee replacement for physical therapy with Evelyn…her professional skills are outstanding, of course, and her kind and caring attitude is also wonderful and went a long way to making me more comfortable and confident."

Going the extra mile:

Shirley Ferrara CNA – While providing care to a patient, the patient slumped over and became unresponsive.  Shirley lowered him to the floor and alerted his wife to call 911 after assessing that the patient was not breathing.  She initiated and maintained CPR until Rescue arrived.
Mary Catherine Harper RN – while providing a supervisory visit assessing home health aide services, typically a 15 – 30 minute visit, Mary Catherine assessed that the patient had a stroke level blood pressure.  She contacted his MD, the Veteran Administration case manager and his family.  When he refused to go to the hospital in the rescue that she had called for him, she was so concerned with this patient’s health and safety that she remained with him until his family arrived, over two hours. 
Danny Alves CNA – Walked to a Hospice patient’s house during a snowstorm to provide needed care.
