When Simoni works with me in the pool, she not only works using her knowledge, she works from her heart. I’ve had chronic pain for many years, and although I know I won’t ever fully recover, I’ve been able to manage my pain to a point I am happy with. The team from Home Health Boutique has helped take the edge off my sickness.
I am also thankful to the nurse, Becki, who is always there when I need help with my medical issues.”Helena L.
