“We have been most pleased with the services provided by Windward Life Care. We not only have a Care Health Manager, but a companion care gal as well, both provided by Windward. I moved out of state and the rest of my family are many miles away, so having some personal attention to our 97 yr old aunt was imperative! They have been responsive to our requests and have gone above and beyond the call of duty in some instances. We couldn’t be more pleased with the personnel assigned to overseeing our Aunt and feel most comfortable that she is getting the attention she needs. I would highly recommend this company.” – L.R.
