"On behalf of dad and our family, I want to say thank you for the alost 3 1/2 years of “tender loving care” he received at PSC. We admire you so much for the work you do. Your jobs are not easy and are often challenging. It was a comfort to us knowing his needs were met and he was a part of a loving 'family'. Thank you for going above and beyond and for being such wonderful caregivers. In our eyes, you all deserve the 5–Star Award!"
