The members of the Right Choice team are fantastic! The scheduling, billing, and, most importantly, caregiver training... are all excellent. My parents have been able to stay in their own home thanks to the caregivers' attentiveness. When it comes to meals, bathing, physical therapy and medicine reminders, my parents receive assistance as needed. In addition to that, I've been able to keep track of daily activities and have had no problems with billing. Thank you, Right Choice, for giving me peace of mind knowing that my parents are receiving high-quality care while still being able to keep their more

A care giver from Right Choice (I won’t mention her name because I don’t want to embarrass her) was there with my mom... up until she passed on. She thought highly of her and looked forward to the times she was there. You were so kind to her and for that we all consider you family. Thank you for being there.
