Video Testimonial Overview
Well, here a while back a lady come and wanted to know who I could get to take care of me.
I fell in the bathroom a couple of times. It’s ain’t good to fall. Oh, I have to have care, I mean my son makes sure that I don’t fall. But I have to be careful, I have to use a walker.
My son takes me out, we went to like a ball game the other night. They take me to the store, take me places sometimes we went to the movie a couple times.
The nurse, the one that was here, does my vitals. She trims my fingernails and my toenails. She also does the prescriptions. The other nurse is as good as her. Chris and Amy, they take care of me, they make sure I’m okay. They check on me every once in a while. She works quite a bit and he does too. She cleans the house, mops it, vacuums the rug, makes my bed and everything.
It’s real important to have you know people you know.
My caregivers are my family.
