I miss all my nurses who cared so much for me. I miss whistling and singing teacher “Sal”. I miss my therapists which I call my “pushers” because if it wasn’t for them pushing me to do my exercises and walking I wouldn’t be as far as I am today. I miss Jayson who is a wonderful cook and Maribel. Whoever started Care Meridian did a good thing and the people who run it sure know how to hire the right people.

I wish to express my gratitude to you for the work and service you and your staff at CareMeridian [Las Vegas] provide for my daughter everyday. I visit her at least once a week, and I have never seen her unhappy or unkempt. I know she is well cared for and attended to (someone really does great work with her hair). You have a fine group of people working there.
