Testimonials about our home care
I would highly recommend Our Family Friend to anyone whose loved one is in need of extra help or simply companionship. Brittany, who has been our local manager for this service, has shown great compassion, integrity and honesty in dealing with our situation. The aides she sent to help my father during the time he needed assistance have been very pleasant and very helpful in keeping us informed as to his abilities and needs. We will not hesitate to call Brittany at Our Family Friend when we need their help again!

"I live 5 hours away from my Dad and can only see him every six weeks. My dad has a phone but he very seldom answers the calls. But I am able to check on him two times a day because of the incredible line of communication we have with the Our Family Friend patient portal. There is not a day that goes by that I am not looking at the support team’s notes on the website.
My sister LaVerne and I call it a “life changer” in the care of our dad . Not only is the staff incredibly caring towards our dad but the updates are so important. I have the website on my phone at all times and I am checking on his progress. LaVerne and I do screenshots of the notes and text them to each other. It really has been a wonderful tool for us and we truly appreciate the site. Thank you.”
“I’ve been totally satisfied by the service and support that Our Family Friend provided my wife from beginning to end.”
"I’d like to start by saying that I’ve been totally satisfied by the service and support that Our Family Friend provided my wife from beginning to end. She received compassionate care and she truly enjoyed the interaction with all the caregivers. In addition, they went out of their way to keep my wife as active as possible and helped her with daily activities, meals, and personal hygiene.
Also important was that they were always on time for their assignments and were prompt on reporting their observations on the online portal. They communicated ahead of time if there were any changes in the schedule. The supervisor was excellent in directly communicating with me when I had questions or concerns!
Finally, I’d like to thank all the “Friends” that helped Dorothy through this difficult period of her Alzheimer’s disease! I know she’ll miss the companionship and care you provided her over the last few months.”
“You cannot find a better organization.”
Our Family Friend is an outstanding organization. Everyone from the owner to the outstanding aides has been superb. They have always met my needs and know what to do to make my life comfortable . I so look forward to seeing my aides as they make my life so comfortable with their caring ways. You cannot find a better organization.

“Our family will be forever grateful.”
Dear Dee, Beth and Monica,
Each one of you has truly become our family friend!
Our Family Friend was there when our mom and our family needed you. Each of you was compassionate, responsive, giving, and patient. Over the last six months of mom's life she transitioned from needing a casual companion to accompany her to the store or to a doctor’s appointment to needing someone to hold her hand and console her during her final weeks of life. Our family will be forever grateful for all you have done to make these last months, weeks, and days the very best for her.
You were also there in special ways for each of us kids, our wives, and mom's grandchildren. The following are some of the many services you provided for us:
-Becoming a valued companion
-Becoming genuine and trusted new friends with mom
-Driving mom on countless errands
-Accompanying mom to her many doctor’s appointments
-Briefing family members with timely, informative emails
-Bringing homemade soup and chocolate chip cookies
-Continuing to visit even when mom became an inpatient in the rehabilitation facility
-Attending and contributing to multi-discipline case conferences
-Bringing your therapy puppy to visit and make mom smile
-Stretching and growing your services to meet mom’s needs
-Knowing your limits and being seamless in the transition of mom's care
-Being responsible and true to your agency’s values
-Keeping your commitments to mom and to us
We extend our most sincere gratitude. We recommend you to our friends with the highest confidence.
May God’s blessings overtake you and yours! Scott, Chris, Sheryl, and Steve
"Words cannot say how much Our Family Friend did for our family."
We would like to thank Our Family Friend for the wonderful care they gave to my mother. For families, like ours, who want to keep their loved one in their own home, this is the number one company! Dee, Carol, and their wonderful staff were only a phone call away. Their staff was very caring and professional. They treated our mother like she was their own mother. During her hospital stays, the caregivers were some of the first visitors--bringing warm smiles and fresh flowers!
Because of the wonderful care our mother received, I was able to continue working, knowing mom was being cared for. They made her days bright. They also gave me and our family emotional support when times were challenging.
Words cannot say how much Our Family Friend did for our family. Our Family Friend is the right name for this company because they treated us like family!
