Everyone spent time with me and took care of me like I  was the only patient they had.  It made my wife feel good because I was being  taken care of.  I was very satisfied and would ask for Aquinas again.  I had had home health in the past and didn’t realize the other agency was just fair until Aquinas came.  Aquinas was so good and so thoughtful.
