Testimonials

I want to thank PSS Circle of Care Consultant Chidi Chizor for always going above and beyond and such a big help when it comes to care of my elderly father who suffers with dementia.

Christine B.
Caregiver

PSS Circle of Care has been a life saver. The care consultant’s professionalism and responsiveness is unmatched. I called and she leaped into action. Out of all of the people I called, Circle of Care was the one which was really there to provide relief for my family, and I no longer have to worry. I tell everyone about the services and how great the organization is. It’s really been a blessing.

Parniece R.
Caregiver

PSS has assisted me and my care giving duties in a fashion no other support group has! Via PSS I was provided invaluable information for the care of my mother via NHTD program and how to refer her case, home security camera for my Mother’s place gifted to me for keeping an eye on her and her care, monthly outings with Mother to Piece-of-Cake at Memory Cafe and an insightful rejuvenating outing just for me and other caregivers for a day of Reiki healing and meditation at local library. I enjoy and welcome most of all the genuine caring attitudes of all the staff members with whom I have interacted from the first call I made to PSS!

Angelita R.
Caregiver

I hope I can fully express my gratitude to Care Consultant Naa Dei Nikoi Amasa for the time she gave me. Heartfelt thanks for enriching my life by bringing the home health care aide into it.

Love and regards, Diane F.

Care Receiver

The Circle of Care support group has helped me to have a greater understanding of what it means to be a caregiver. We come in different shapes and sizes. We all have a different story to tell and a need to be heard by our fellow sufferers. From sharing and caring I have been able to find my calling in becoming a life, motivational, and inspirational coach. I hope to be able to help others and assist them in their journey through this thing we call life.
