Absolutely outstanding service provided by Seth Smothers and Kara Terry after my right knee total joint replacement. I could not have had more caring and competent people taking care of me after this experience. Thank you for everything. You two were the greatest!

The Alacare of Decatur has a wonderful group of people. I have always been an independent person, but my health has got me to a point that I have to have help. This really bothers me, I hate having to depend on others, I feel useless. I thought having to depend on them would make me feel even worse, like a nothing if you will. But their kindness, caring and the respectful way they treat me has the opposite effect. Thank-you for being there for those of us that need a little extra help. Your wonderful treatment of me and all you have done for me is very much appreciated and comes from the heart. If you don't know me by Diann, I'm Charlotte.
