“The course content is encylopedic, concise and readily understandable. Insightful and valuable for anyone needing to understand more about dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.”
“This course was very helpful in increasing my knowledge of dementia and Alzheimer’s. It helped prepare me for what to expect and how to properly care for a loved one with dementia. I would recommend this course to anyone in the caregiving field or with aging loved ones–you will learn something new and be more empathetic and skilled in navigating this challenging condition.”

“Your services were outstanding. We have family to provide help for the summer months. I may need your services again in the fall and will definitely notify you.”
“Our family appreciates the professional and personal care that your staff provided our mother over the past 3 months.“
– Mark M.
“Aishling staff managers are very caring people, who went over and beyond to discern the particular “individual” needs of our family for care giving. They extended themselves, especially the owner, in areas beyond care giving, that supported the family during the time of uncertainty, anxiety and transition. The personal kindness and individualized attention, provided by Aishling Companion Home Care managers has been the outstanding characteristic of our relationship with Aishling“
– Patricia E.
“Thank you Aishling for providing my husband with kind, concerned and professional caregivers. Your understanding of my situation has helped me a great deal. A special thanks to Elena.“
– Barbara B.
“I had 3 caregivers who did an excellent job offering care in helping me clean my house and making my meals. Your people were on time each day and very professional with my care. I would recommend them for any level of personal care. Being clean and on time were very important to me, as was the companionship each day and being on time to AA meetings each day. Thank you for the professional help. The bottom line is – thank you for caring for me and my well being.“
“I hired Aishling to sit with my husband – a recovering alcoholic. When I first talked to Aishling, he had just been discharged after a 10 day stay in the hospital. His doctor wanted him in a nursing home, but that was just too expensive for me. Aishling first sent me Gina who came for 20 hours per week. My husband adored her. She got him moving, eating, took him to his AA meetings. He became rehabilitated enough that I was able to cut down to 12 hours per week. He has now been in recovery for almost 2 months. He has become an active part of our family again. I owe Gina, Cathy and Jasiman a big thank you for all they did. Besides their care, companionship and transportation to AA, they cleaned my house and made meals. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. I did something different by hiring Aishling and I am so pleased with the results.“
“You went beyond a business relationship and sent mom cards, flowers and checked on her through the phone calls. Thank you for the mass card. We felt the strength of prayer.“
– The Family of Clara Cuthbertson
“Aishling Companion Home Care has been a life saver for us. Our experience with your service has been nothing but good. Everyone has been very helpful, flexible, and has done everything we have asked as well as accommodated our every adjustment, change and at the same time, treating my mother’s needs as if she was their mother. We felt we were treated like we were the only clients. I can’t say thank you enough. Our caregiver has been wonderful. We can’t say enough about her. Not only did she take care of my mother, but she took the time to write us a letter every week with exactly what they did, what they ate, etc., which we all looked forward to reading.Â Thank You and we wish you all well.“
– Deirdre B.
“Mary was blessed to have such wonderful caregivers in her life. We would like to extend our humble gratitude to the Aishling Companion Home Care caregivers – how blessed we were to have you. No request was ever deemed too difficult. The everyday gentleness of the caregivers and the enduring question – Can I get you anything? – showed their constant vigilance. The personal touches will always be remembered.“
– The Taylor Family
“On behalf of Robert (Bob) Craig and his entire family, I would like to express our gratitude for the excellent care Bob received from your caregivers. They were all, to a person, professional in their hands-on-care. They completed each task with patience, keeping him looking and feeling his best at all times. With my varied work schedule, I would visit Bob at different times, morning and night. He was always in the best possible state when I visited. That was a huge source of comfort for the family.
More importantly, the individual caregivers seemed to express a loving feeling to Bob with all their tasks. They talked about his family members, his favorite teams and shared their own positive attitudes on a daily basis. They put a special emphasis on any aspect of his care that the family made mention of. The special music compilation and iPod custom-made by your company for Bob was a terrific relaxation tool. Finally, the overall guidance provided by Aishling Companion Home Care has proved invaluable to us in this important time. Thank you for your excellent service.“

“Perhaps you sent a lovely card or sat quietly in a chair.
Perhaps you sent a funeral spray. If so, we saw it there.
Perhaps you spoke the kindest words as any friend could say.
Perhaps you were not there at all, just thought of us that day.
Whatever you did to console our hearts, we thank you so much whatever the part.”
– By the Family of Marie Costello
“My family has been very blessed to have had ACHC for our parents. You worked with schedules that changed frequently and your office staff, Sharon, Shannon and Kathy were OUTSTANDING. Marguerite, Kayleigh, Anna, Sabrina and Shannon were our favorites. Thank You, Thank You! We would gladly refer family and friends to Aishling.”
– Teresa K.
“I want to take the time to Thank You for the care that your group was able to provide for my sister over the last months. I want to personally say thanks for your time, effort and consideration in helping Maggie deal with her cancer and her resulting physical limitations. The caregivers you provided handled the difficult conditions with which they were confronted with patience and understanding. They should all be commended.”
– Thomas G.
“As Thanksgiving draws near I wanted to take the opportunity to express my gratitude in writing for your incredible kindness to my mother Marian, and to our family. Mom never quite understood whey she “needed ” any help but she certainly was happy to have the company especially another “woman to talk to” and of course, to to drink coffee with. Therefore you can imagine how happy we were that familiar faces, Bola, Marguerite, Nancy, were with her in the last week and our gratitude also extends to Jasmine who took her for her last walk around town and Evelyn, for our conversations about our neighborhood. So much appreciation for the home visits, steady updates, and endless patience with the myriad of phone calls.”
– The Betty Bush Family
“Our family was in the midst of a crisis when we contacted Aishling Companion Home Care. We received personal care and service from Aishling that allowed us to ensure the peaceful and pain-free transition of our brother. I truly felt that when Aishling came to our home, God had sent an angel. The attention and support we received was above and beyond anything we could have hoped and prayed for – Aishling and her team will always be remembered by our family.”
– The Callahan Family

I would like to give a special shout out of gratitude to Jason M. as he had gone above and beyond at comforting and caring for my dad til he passed away on Jasons shift. You have a gift when you employ anyone with Jasons heart.”

I was walked through the whole process and felt very comfortable leaving my mom in their care. They thought of everything that needed to be done. I was given constant updates and suggestions throughout the process. My mom and I could not have been happier.”

My family has benefited immeasurably because of the care and peace of mind your services have provided. Regardless the task be it grocery shopping, a trip to the doctor’s or helping with daily chores, you are always there for them. Thank you.”
– Margaret S.
“One of the best decisions I ever made was employing Aishling Companion Home care, I am more relaxed because I know my wife is being better cared for than if I took care of her myself. Her caregiver makes her coffee, and lunch, she even cooks dinner for the both of us and leaves it ready for when I get home tired in the evenings. Our caretaker does the laundry, and anything around the house that she can do to help. She regularly takes my wife out for exercise and fresh air. We are very happy.”
– Joe B.
“Jerry and I have marveled over the last couple of weeks at Mike’s happy state of mind. It is due to the loving care and personal interest that you have given him since you came into his life in February of this year. Prior to your arrival, his home was barely livable and his life was somewhat chaotic. Now he is free of stress because you and Theresa spent untold hours cleaning out the trash that Mike accumulated over the decades and allowed to overrun his home. you event went so far as to acquire a commercial fell and broke a shoulder that needed surgery. My sisters and I were working full-time as the main income for our families, so having the comfort of Aishling and her company care for her was the perfect solution. Her team is background-checked and very caring. We found her company through word of mouth becayse their experience was so good.”
“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the live-in care your staff provided for our father. You and your staff were a blessing in all of our lives and we are so grateful.”
– The Climack Family
