"I feel soo fortunate that we found them"
"My 90-year-old mom was stuck in a nursing home in Manhattan in 2021 and we were finally able to get her back to her apartment with Elmy's providing 24-hour care. The women they have sent have all been very caring and respectful. Especially Annette and Aretha who we really consider like family now. They are extremely professional and many have worked in nursing homes so they know how to deal with dementia and other age related issues. I feel soo fortunate that we found them and I can't recommend them enough."
