Testimonials

To Anchor Management,

Our nurse was very conscientious and willing to do extra things to help me.  She was always concerned about my well-being and made me feel very comfortable during my rehab.

"I wish to thank you and Anchor Home Health Services for the excellent physical therapy I have received after my recent Hip Replacement and Arthroscopy surgery on my left knee.

Irene is a First Class Therapist.  I would consider her one of the finest Therapists I have ever met, and my present good physical condition is in large part due to her exceptional talent."

With renewed thanks and best wishes,

"Anchor Home Health has been by far the most responsive, professional, skilled and compassionate agency.  Your nurses and aides plus community relations and office workers unhesitatingly provide the support my husband needs.  They also provide the support that I need as a caregiver who must continue to work outside of the home.

I cannot tell you how important your support is for families dealing with long-term health challenges.  There are many worries and much stress living in this challenging situation.  But my husband's care in your hands is something I know I can depend upon, which brings great peace of mind.

Please thank everyone in your employ and tell them that they play an invaluable role in the lives of families who truly need your unfailing support and care.

Choosing Anchor Home Health Services is the best decision my family has ever made!

"I had a total knee replacement...and referred to your home service.  I would have never made the progress I did without the encouragement they gave me.   I am about to go north for the summer and I feel that the progress I have made has given me a wonderful start to achieve my goal of returning to the tennis court when we return to FL next fall.  Your service is the most efficient I have seen and everyone involved was friendly and willing to help in any way they could."
