Why our patients love Americare

As my mother's primary caregiver, I struggled to juggle her needs after her debilitating stroke with my full-time job and young kids at home. Having Americare's compassionate nurses provide skilled care allowed mom to regain her strength and start caring for herself again. I'm so grateful for their expertise and warmth.

S. Thompson

My father cherished his independence, so when he needed more assistance in his 90s, he was reluctant to accept help. But Americare's home health aides quickly put him at ease with their friendly manner and patience. They not only kept him safe, but also brought joy to his days with art projects and puzzles. Dad looked forward to their visits.

James W.

Recovering from major surgery as a single woman with no family nearby was daunting. But Americare's skilled nurses helped with my medications, changed bandages, and assisted me with getting to the bathroom. Their thoughtful care gave me the support I required to get back on my feet again. I'll never forget their kindness.

Jessica

My wife's early onset dementia turned our golden years upside down. As her memory rapidly declined, she became frightened and agitated. Americare's specially trained staff took the time to get to know her likes and dislikes. Their gentle approach kept her calm and comforted during a difficult time. I'm forever grateful for their compassion.

M. Davis

Losing my young brother to cancer was devastating. When hospice care was recommended, Americare's nurses and aides became part of our family. They kept him comfortable and let him pass peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones and his belongings. I can't imagine going through it without their empathetic support.

Stephanie L.

As my wife's primary caregiver, I was burning out between medical appointments and household duties. Having an Americare aide stop by regularly gave me a necessary break so I could recharge. She kept my wife entertained while I ran errands or took a nap. Their service was a life-saver for both of us.

M. Chen

At 90 years old, I cherished my independence but needed some help at home after being hospitalized. My children had busy families and I didn't want to burden them. Americare's kind nurses helped me with my medications, meal prep and light housework allowing me to recover while giving my family peace of mind. I'm so thankful for their assistance.

Dorothy

Keeping up with the daily care needs of my wheelchair bound father at home became exhausting for our family. Americare's home health aides gave him the expert care he required while giving us an opportunity to recharge. We're so appreciative that we could keep Dad comfortable at home thanks to their amazing support.

N. Rodrigez

As a busy single mom, I had no way to care for my elderly mother after her bad fall. With Americare's skilled nurses stopping by, I knew mom would get the attentive care she deserved in spite of my hectic schedule. I'm extremely grateful they were there for her when I couldn't be.

Lisa Brown

After major surgery, my social butterfly wife felt isolated and alone at home. But Americare's thoughtful home health aides kept her company playing cards, doing crafts and enjoying friendly conversation. They helped her feel safe and secure during recovery. My wife looked forward to their uplifting visits.
