Lynn Goehner and her team of specialists have provided exceptional guidance, nursing care and compassion for us during the past few years. She is able to see the whole picture and then help us put together the intricate levels of care needed as my husband’s condition changes. She is a great communicator and excellent liaison with physicians and other service providers. Her team is equally skilled at solving problems and providing support. Because of Eldercare Specialists, I am able to provide the highest level of care for my husband at home.
