Real experiences from Rutland & Bennington County clients
“I just want all of you who came to my home and made things nicer for me to know that it is very much appreciated. You need to know how much easier both energy and comfort-wise it has been for me in my “eighties” to be able to stay alone in my own home for as long as possible.”
