She should change her name to Angel, because that is what she is. She cared for our 97 year old mother for the last 18 months of her life. During that time her responsibilities grew dramatically from companion care and light housekeeping to acute hospice care, By the time our mother passed away last week, she truly loved April, and there is no doubt that when April was near, our mom was not afraid. In the last three months of our mother's life, the caregiver role became very demanding and April really proved her worth. She is intelligent, proactive, absolutely trustworthy, and one of the most compassionate people our family has ever had the privilege of knowing.

If this review seems over the top, it's because honesty demands nothing less.
