We are sorry you feel that you did not have a good experience with our services recently. We had many wonderful caregivers taking care of your mom for more than 2 years. Our CAREGivers are very aware of both their safety and our client’s safety and always do our best to confirm this is not compromised when our clients decline. I am sorry that you did not call me to discuss these concerns as this is not how we conduct our business. Know that I would be happy to discuss the matter with you at any time. Feel free to reach out to me at 508-778-8613. Sincerely, Denise Dever – Owner
