A Patient

“I am writing to let you know how wonderful my care provider from Georgetown Home Care was. She spent the last three nights with me following my extensive spine surgery.

I have had a number of care providers (nurses, home aides, OT, PT) in the last two weeks and this care provider stood out from all of them. Most importantly, she was caring and compassionate, always careful to make sure my safety and comfort were her priorities.

My care provider was excellent at following directions. I would provide instructions and she followed them to a tee.

I had peace of mind by knowing a task would be done right the first time, versus being annoyed with a job poorly done, or my having to try to fix a situation.

My care provider was keenly aware of keeping a small “footprint.” She moved around quietly, kept her things neatly together and tidied up each morning before departing.

She was punctual in her arrival (or was early), and she took care to be timely in reminding me to take my medicines. She was gracious each night as she escorted me to the bathroom on approximately an hourly basis.

I hope to have the opportunity to use this care provider again. In the meanwhile, I give her my highest recommendation.”
