Below are some testimonies from current clients:
"Spending time with Kay for my mom has been empowering and created some independence. She feels a sense of freedom – mom has a friend who is not also a family member. The time with Kay also gives her something to talk about and share with her family – again sort of a sense of freedom. She is her own person. Since the decline of her memory and increased reliance on her family – this shred of independence is important. Mom thoroughly enjoys the time that she is spending with Kay – and that is a lot as she is the truest of introverts. I’m so happy that we found your organization and keep doing the good work that you are doing." - Golden Care client
"As we approach the end of 2019, I wanted to take an opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for the assistance and support you and your organization, Golden Care of Frederick, Inc. have been able to afford to my father since the start of his home care services. There is such a disparity specific to home care options for seniors that are affordable, reliable and flexible. Golden Care of Frederick, Inc. has not only helped to fill that gap for my father but has gone above and beyond to ensure the home aide paired with my father was a good fit for his home care needs. Words cannot fully express the level of gratitude your services offer in helping to improve my father’s quality of life. We are thoroughly happy and beyond satisfied with the services Golden Care of Frederick, Inc. has provided." - Golden Care client
