Something to Talk About

Quotes from our ClientsI don’t know how we would have gotten through this without you and your staff’s assistance. You probably already know this, but I feel compelled to give you a “report card” on the day staff:
Virginia: She’s an angel, and at the same time, a “whirling dervish” with a non-stop take charge energy level. I can’t say enough good things about her. She cares about her clients and their demise hurts her.
Lucy: Kind and caring. Good Activity level.
As you know, the night crew is on duty when we were generally sleeping, so we had less interaction. Monica is a good and caring person. (She called after Linda’s passing to give her condolences). So is Sue. With less demands, the night crew is different in operation. You guys have the right folks on the right shifts.
That’s what my daughter Keri and I thought. Thought you should know.
In closing, let me say that your service exceeded our expectations. I’ll definitely recommend your firm to anyone that I hear needs help.

- Thanks again, M.R.
