I’m very happy with the care given by First Call Home Health. We have a resident who just had a stroke and I requested that the PT-OT be from First Call. The doctor said, “Oh sure”, and I was thrilled.


I have been working with Cynthia and First Call Home Health for quite some time and we are pleased to continue to do business with them. We appreciate First Call’s willingness to learn our organization and how we prefer to operate. They take it one step further by aligning themselves with our vision to become a seamless extension of our operation. This extra effort makes the difference with our families and resources.

Thank you to all the caregivers from First Call Home Health, especially Laurie. Laurie is so kind and always gives me a boost in spirits when she comes around.

Kathy and Janelle are very nice. They were very patient in showing me the exercises and then they stayed with me until I clearly understood the PT directions. I am very pleased with the care from First Call Home Health and would highly recommend this company to my friends and family.

My husband and I are very pleased with Eric and his help with me during physical therapy. I am stronger now and walking again, two times daily to the dining room. I am able again to be socially active. I am very pleased with how Eric worked with me.


I have nothing but high praise for those from First Call who are coming out to see me. They are great and I’m getting better!

July 2010

First Call Home Health has taken care of my parents at various times. They are very professional. It has always been a positive experience for my parents and myself.

Teri R.

They are great.

Wayne M.

I recently told my doctor that if I needed home health, DO NOT send anyone unless they have a purple folder and are from First Call Home Health. Otherwise, I will not let them in the door. First Call Home Health does a great job and I have been impressed with everyone that they send out to help me.

Luella T.

Everyone at First Call is professional and caring – willing to go the extra mile. My husband has shown progress and is able to do more for himself which frees me up to do my things. I would highly recommend this service to everyone.

Rayoline C.

John, PT, was outstanding. He took an extra step forward to help out. I would recommend him for a raise. When he smiles at you he means it.

Mark L.

All of your staff were very professional, on-time and very knowledgeable.  We truly appreciated all they did for Dorothy. Especially coming into the home when Dorothy was not able to go to the office. Eric was especially great!  Very caring, knowledgeable and a great sense of humor. We miss Eric and did not want him to stop coming over. However, his wonderful care mad that unnecessary. Eric is the greatest!


I have enjoyed all the staff who have worked with me. I have gained invaluable information for taking responsible care of myself. Thank you all.


Eric is just fantastic, top of the field in my opinion. I feel that First Call is very fortunate to have such a talented therapist. First Call is very knowledgeable, good presentation and instructing, very encouraging. They are firm but gentle push when needed and fantastic personality and cheerful.
