I have had the honor of working with Eileen and the incredible staff of Aquinas Home Health.  Not only do I find their care second to none but they also have compassion when giving that care. The Aquinas staff makes any transition seamless.  I would choose them for my family member and to me that is the highest recommendation you could ever give to any company.
