Kimberly and her staff are the best! the name says it all. They should be your 1st Choice! My mom was in Hospice in my home and the nurses from 1st Choice were EXCELLENT. They treated my mom like she was their mother. They not only took care of her but me too. They were so kind, caring, experienced, knowledgeable about Hospice and what she needed. Mom fell in love with them, as did I. I had 1st Choice 12 hrs a day/ 7 days a week.
When mom's memory began to impact her daily living, I engaged 1st Choice after evaluating several groups in the area. Janet (owner) knows how to care for our loved ones and to hire a team that make that happen. Mom and I partnered with her and her resources for 1.5 years while mom was still independent, helping with dressing, redirection and panic. We brought mom home during COVID and for the past two years these ladies have poured their care and wisdom into our lives as the ravages of Alzheimer's left her much more physically dependent. I am forever grateful for this group. No one is perfect (as people are not) but if you are willing to walk along side of them to get to the care your loved one needs, you won't regret the choice.
My experience with 1st Choice Home Care has been exceptional. It is so hard to watch a loved one, especially my mom, suffer with the ills of aging. As my energies grew less the professionals with 1st Home care eased my anxieties while providing loving and professional care to her. I would not have made it without the gifted staff and the love and care they showed. Thank you thank you thank you! Kim Berry
A great company to work for. Amazing leaders and mentors. They have taught me a lot and given me valuable life experiences I will forever cherish. Still growing and learning each day. Thank you all for everything!!
