I have utilzed HISC for 2 years now and am well pleased with their services and caregivers. I have met them all and since I live 150 miles away, rely heavily on them, trust them to get things done. (And they do!) Any concern I have they take care of and have gone the distance for me and my mom. I feel better that they are there for us.
