Mele is an absolute treasure. She cared for my sister during her last two weeks of her life. She showed incredible respect and compassion for the patient as well as our family, and was extremely knowledgeable and competent. When she came to us, we were scared and uncertain, but she shepherded through the process. . She reassured us and taught us how to be present for a dying person. I recommend her wholeheartedly.

I am writing on behalf of Kathy who worked in our home as the Caregiver for my father until he passed away 3 weeks short of his 96th birthday. Kathy is reliable and caring, she formed a bond of trust with my Dad and was in tune with his needs. She took the initiative to prepare meals that were nutritious and to his liking, She helped with housework and was very respectful of our space. She did a great job managing his medications, taking him to doctor's appointments and all the care he needed with getting cleaned up and dressed each day. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly and as a physician I was very aware of how well she did her job and how honest and compassionate that she is.
