    Testimonials

    Real people. Real changes.

    Patricia Charles

    New York, NY

    "I’ve had aides in the past, but it always ended badly. This is one of the best programs ever. I’m so happy that my niece is helping me. And our contact at FreedomCare is wonderful."

    Elizabeth Salley

    Brooklyn, NY

    "It was hard, because I didn’t want to leave my mom at home — I was scared she’d leave the stove on or get hurt. And you only get one mother. Now I get to have a job AND care for my mom at once. It’s literally PERFECT.”

    Richard Branker

    Long Island, NY

    “My mother had two strokes. We brought in a couple of aides, but I could tell she wasn’t happy. Now I get to care for Mom daily — and she’s smiling and laughing. I feel like it’s my destiny."
