Testimonials

“Eldercare Specialists has been a godsend for my family. I live out of state and depend on them to provide the loving care I can’t.They oversee all aspects of my grandmother’s care, from taking her to medical appointments, coordinating caregivers, to arranging her hair cuts and personal shopping. When she needed to be moved from her independent apartment into assisted living, they were able to make all the arrangements. My grandmother feels very comfortable and cared for, and it makes her living situation close to perfect for her”
