Liz Romero was an excellent care giver for my father. She also supported my mother with her kindness and compassion. We could not have asked for a more competent, kind and caring person. As the only living child of Margaret and John Biles, the quality of the care provided was a blessing to the family. ...John B.August 16, 2014
