Our Story...

As usual, your last minute accommodation of my request was exemplary, My resident, Sue says your aide was “very helpful and very nice.” The trip to the immediate card center, for Sue, was the right thing to do for her peace of mind. You and your staff are always gracious and willing no matter what time I call! Thanks again.

- Susan (Senior Living Coordinator)

The primary caregiver that Helping Hands sent to my parents home seemed to be a perfect match for them. The personal care was both compassionate and professional. it also gave Dad a much needed break while the caregiver was there. Our family was thankful that we found Helping hands and the kind of care we needed.

- Pat I.F

Thank you for helping me say good-bye to my Mama, and thank you for helping my Mama pass so peacefully. All during her last day, she had one foot in Heaven already! Your caregivers were amazing – so soft with their words and their touch, so loving and caring in their handling of Mama. thank you again, dear ones. I stand in awe of you and all Mama’s caregivers.

- Martha M.

I want to thank each and every one of you who participated in mom’s care. Without your help we would never have been able to fulfill her request to remain in her home. You were kind, attentive, and considerate of mom’s wishes. Your patience with each of our situations was extraordinary. You never failed to answer a phone call or respond to a plea for help. You became my extended family and I will miss you.” Many Blessings

- Nicki
