Our Family Friend is just that; from the first moment of contact with Dee Petry, we have always been treated as if we were family and not just another client. I didn’t know what to expect when I first started searching for in-home care/help for my elderly father, but I knew I had made the right choice in calling “Our Family Friend” after my first phone conversation with Dee.

The professionalism, caring demeanor, and help provided from the crew at Our Family Friend the last year has truly been a “God Send” and has brought a breath of fresh air to my father’s life as well as mine!

Thank you Dee!


Our Family Friend came into our lives via the recommendation of an outstanding group of Occupational Therapists. We couldn’t be more grateful for Dee Petry and her team. Our needs involved finding qualified, caring rehabilitation team members for a family member who had tragically suffered a severe traumatic brain injury.

Our team needed talented, smart women who could commit to the intensity of aggressive rehab goals. One of Dee’s professional starting places is finding the ‘right’ employees. Our Family Friend is a company with a business philosophy so sorely needed in our culture. She puts people first.

We are beginning our second year with Dee and couldn’t feel more at peace and cared for. Not only have her team members provided us with fabulous rehab team members, but she sincerely cares about me (as the core caregiver).

Professional, attentive and sincere. We are more than happy to “spread the word” about Our Family Friend!


Each one of you has truly become our family friend!

You were there when our mom and our family needed you. Each of you was compassionate, responsive, giving and patient. Over the last 6 months of Ida’s life she transitioned from needing a casual companion to accompany her to the card store or a doctor’s appointment to holding her hand and console her during the last few weeks when she was declining and dying.

Our family will forever be grateful for all you have done to make these last months, weeks and days the very best for Ida. You were also there in special ways for each of us kids, our wives and Ida’s grandchildren.

Our most sincere gratitude. We recommend you to our friends with the highest confidence.
May God’s blessings overtake you and yours!
