I want to tell you the caregivers Katie, Bill, Joan and Sue were professional, dependable and very compassionate. Mike was in very good hands, and it is comforting to know how well cared for he was and what a blessing it was to have him home. I would not have been able to do it without their help.
AAHC has allowed me to work as much as I want without pressure, while always providing the opportunity to further my career.
This is the best company I’ve worked for. I am glad to have this opportunity
