My father’s long working life was devoted to the unselfish service of others.
Your agency’s HHA’s, Juliette, Felicia, and Dawn, instinctively followed his example in caring for him during his last months of life. His passage from this life was made as comfortable as it could possibly be by their compassionate presence and understanding care. Your careful management of the HHAs’ services, and patience in enabling them to work in difficult circumstances, is also commendable. I am most grateful to Juliette for her help, not least for her staying three full days during Hurricane Sandy, but also for her wisdom and common-sense, for which I have the highest regard and respect.”
Dear All of You,
I’m sending you the following email that we sent to our friends and family about his passing; we mean every word about the support we got from all the home health aides, the nurses and consultants. Our home became a warm and safe place for him in his final days and we greatly appreciated the warmth and professionalism from all of those who helped us….”

The aide were very helpful, they were on time, and I received many extras. The aide found someone who would come to my house and cut my hair at a good price. They also found me a book I wanted. They were also on time. The office staff was very cheerful and helpful too. Many thanks.”

We have found SelectCare to be excellent, both in terms of the training, skills and compassion of their home health aides and nurses, and also in terms of the responsiveness of the administrative staff and managers in the office. Professional and caring: everything a good home care service should be.
Selectcare provides for a weekly visit by an RN for my mother. Karen is capable, compassionate and cheerful. She is in contact with the Drs. to coordinate care and has given me useful suggestions. I consider her a wonderful case manager.”
We’ve hired SelectCare to provide aides for my mother for the last 9 months, I guess. The aides are great. The agency, and its staff are conscientious and caring. I recommend them highly.”
The SelectCare agency provided help and support for my mother when she really needed it. The administrative staff was very thoughtful and immediately responsive, and the aides were kind and a great source of comfort to a stressed-out family.”
Ms. Holub and the staff at Selectcare helped me through a recent crisis concerning my very ill father. The were efficient, knowledgeable, sensitive, caring and thorough. I can’t think of any other organisation that would have lead us through our crisis better. Many thanks to them.”
Our child was getting married in Manhattan, and we live in CT. We wanted my mom, who has major mobility issues, to come to the wedding. It was going to be a weekend thing, with events spanning several days. Totally stressed, I spoke with Carla, explained the situation, and she told me that I didn’t have to worry any longer; she would find someone I could count on so that my mom, my husband and i could enjoy this important milestone. Carla came through with flying colors. The home health aide sent for my mom was competent, reliable and had a lovely personality. She took initiative when necessary, and was a pleasure to have in our midst. I had total confidence in her. She accompanied Mom to various events happening at the hotel and off-site, including into and out of a hired car service at midnight after the reception (while my husband and I remained at the reception). I will contact Carla again when we return to NYC for our next son’s wedding!”
I have now used Select Care twice to care for elderly friends and both times I was very satisfied. Most recently, an aide named Samantha Evans provided care and companionship for an 89-year-old dear friend of ours. We found her not only efficient and honest, but most of all, kind and compassionate. She is a delightful and intelligent young woman with excellent judgment and a sweet disposition. We cannot recommend her highly enough. Anybody would be blessed to have her as a care giver. Kudos to Select Care for providing an aide of this calibre.”
Laverne Brown has been working as an aide for my 95 year old husband. We love her and think she was born to be a nurse. Among the qualities she displays are calmness, competence, intelligence and caring. My husband, who usually displays anxiety when someone he’s not familiar with comes on the scene, responded immediately to Laverne. My own daughter is a nurse and I have met many in the course of various surgeries and illnesses and I heartily recommend Laverne for other clients.”
Someone in my dad’s community suggested that I contact SelectCare after having nightmarish experiences with two other home care agencies. It is hard to find the words to express the great relief and comfort their services provided over a period of seven years. Their professional and caring staff was my lifeline. Always responsive and helpful, they helped me to navigate all aspects of my father’s care, and during his last days, his home aide never left his side, guiding him through his final transition while tending to our family’s needs as well. I highly recommend SelectCare to anyone who needs reliable home care for their loved ones, and solid support in their own role as a caregiver. Carla, Edith, Janet, Kelly, Tameka and all of the staff, you have my deepest appreciation and respect.”

My sister has been severely handicapped for several years. Select Care is the second agency that we needed to use. The difference with the aides was unbelievable. The aides and nurse were so much more caring, professional, skilled, and interested in my sister’s getting more out of life than would have been possible without them. They were constantly in touch with me-so helpful as I did not live close. The first agency did not provide a visiting nurse. This turned out to be a blessing as she made several excellent recommendations. I give them my highest recommendation.”
