HT, Washington DC

“Spoke with the client’s Doctor, she stated the weekend care went very well with aide Phylicia Moore. She was impressed with the knowledge and the experience the aide had, she stated she didn’t need to do any training on how to care for her dad. She stated aide did a great job with her dad and she would certainly continue to use Prestige services.”
