Dear Chris: I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the special care that was given to my mother, Evelyn DM during her stay in the month of February 2013. I want to thank you and your staff for the complete comfortable feeling I had while she was in your care. I wish all the patients that I got to know there were able to go home as well. Evelyn would like to go there to visit some of her acquaintances she made while she was there. She is doing remarkable, walking along with a cane. Whittier Home Health Care is providing their services to her. Again, thank you. Marion W. for Evelyn DM.
