In my work I run into many “caretakers” and my experience with the Salus personnel has renewed my admiration and gratefulness for all that you do. I met three of the care-takers for my client and have nothing but good things to say. They were gentle, attentive, kind and with good senses of humor. Never did I see any of the three become impatient and for the most part they went out of the way to make sure she had all she needed.

I recently moved my client to an Assisted Living Facility and one of them accompanied us on the move and was of great assistance in orienting our mutual client to her new surroundings. I called the facility this morning and my client is doing great. Thank you for all that you do and you can be sure I will be using Salus again when I find the need.

Our Case Manager is a wonderful, young woman. Very compassionate and very on hands without being intrusive. Thanks again.
