"I’ve been extremely pleased with every aspect of CHCServices. Even though I am a medical professional, I had no idea how to manage my husband's medical problems and rehabilitation needs following a severe stroke. I made one call to CHCServices when my husband was ready to come home, and we had a team of professional therapists (PT, OT and Speech) and Care Specialists, coordinated by a very capable, involved and reassuring Clinical Supervisor. The Care Specialists are delightful companions and mindful caregivers. In addition to assisting with personal and medical care, they help implement speech and physical therapy plans on a day-to-day basis. My husband's progress has been extraordinary, thanks to the coordinated efforts of the staff from CHCServices. He and I have a very full and satisfying life with help from these skilled and supportive individuals."
