''I brought my mother home to live with me following a massive stroke. I planned to return to work on Monday. When the service that I had arranged to use called on Saturday morning and told me they didn't have enough nursing staff and wouldn't be able to help me, in a panic, I called Home ''Carefree''. They came the next day to meet my mother and arrange for her care. That was 18 months ago and they have been here every day since! They are a lifesaver! They are consistent, reliable, and approachable! No matter what my needs - weekends, nights, flexed scheduling - they have been able to meet them. I feel so blessed to have them as the care provider for my mother. They are wonderful and I wouldn't use anyone else!" - Carol
