Why Choose Us? Just See What Our Patients Are Saying…
Georgia Home Health Services is the best. Employees are well trained and are so patient, kind, courteous, and caring of the elderly. Their attitude is very commendable and reflects greatly on their training. No job is too big or too small. Good management starts with a great supervisor, followed by a wonderful staff of skilled nurses and speech therapists. There is not enough words in the English language to express our gratitude for all their assistance during my husband’s illness.
Barbara Daniels, Wife of a patient, 2018
Over a three year period I under went numerous cancer operations at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL. After each procedure I returned home to the very capable hands of the nurses of Georgia Home Health. They treated me like family and did a commendable job of communicating with my doctors at Mayo. The transition between Mayo and home care was almost seamless and each nurse displayed a professional and caring approach to my needs.
I was almost sad to see the care end as my health improved. I can highly recommend Georgia Home Health to anyone in need of professional health care.
