“We would like to express to you what an exceptional group of ladies you have working at your Carlisle location. The entire group goes above and beyond. We felt at home the first time we walked through the door. They are compassionate, caring, loving, patient, good listeners who give good advice… just very special ladies. I know when I dropped Aunt Sissie off that she was being taken care of the same way I cared for her at home.”
—Tammy & Ted G. (Family of Adult Day Client)
