Rita and Howard SilverIn 1996 my mother was unable to properly take care of herself. After two years of trying to hire and work with full-time caregivers, a friend suggested I contact Alternative Care. This company has been an answer to my prayers. Their staff and caregivers have provided me with the peace of mind, always knowing my mother is receiving the best possible care. My mom fell at the age of 99 and broke her hip. She has recovered and is able to function as she did before the fall. Every day is a blessing for my mother and I am beholden to the great caregivers from Alternative Care.

Their wonderful personnel has been integral in meeting and exceeding our goals, providing the kind of support and hands-on care that truly makes a difference!

Dear Jeanne and Staff,
Thank you for honoring Corky and all the veterans on Veteran’s Day.  Your kindness brought a smile to his face as I am sure it did to many others.  We sincerely appreciate all you do to make these difficult days a little brighter.

Dear Friends,
Thank you for your thoughtful gifts.  The soup (received at Christmas) really hit the spot.  I will enjoy using the calendar as it contains useful information and I can record my own.  I appreciate your girls—they are wonderful.
