"I have found the AMERICARE caregivers to be interested in not only learning about my care but in the type of person that I am. The caregivers have been extremely cooperative and understanding of my strengths as well as my limitations. They are insightful and compassionate of my unique personality, my physical care needs, and my challenges."
