"With my years in the academic field I bring a perspective to the operations of Neighbors Home Care that focuses on excellent teaching/training which leads to the provision of exceptional quality services. Neighbors trains almost all of its aides and provides supervision and in-service to all of them, therefore, we expect outstanding service from them and so should you."
