What Our Patients and Families Say About Us!
“I almost lost my voice to Parkinson’s. I resigned myself to believing there was no hope for me. I told you in the beginning that I missed singing. You took me through this journey. It was very intense. But I made it! I have my singing voice. People no longer tell me that they can’t hear me. How can I ever thank you!”
“The care you provided to my father was excellent and highly professional. We were consistently informed of his progress. Our family training sessions were thorough, the information was just right, not overwhelming. By the time our Dad was discharged, we were confident that we could care for him! Mahalo nui!”
“My daughter started out just saying a few sounds, and within a few months, she progressed to short phrases. She used to be a very frustrated little girl because she couldn’t speak, but now she’s happy. We never thought we’d ever say that she talks too much! But now she does! Thank you!”
