Client Suellen: "Ms. Lashell Tate-Woodson is the best caregiver I have ever known. This includes the many caregivers I have had experience with, through my father’s final illness, my husband’s two knee replacements, and my seven major surgeries (two spinal fusions, two knee replacements, one hip replacement, and two shoulder replacements).
A FEW WORDS ABOUT STEPHANIE FROM AN APPRECIATIVE CLIENT:
Lashell has been the senior caregiver through my time with BrightStar Care, and has trained all of the other caregivers who have provided the rest of my 24-hours of care through my last two joint replacements, making sure that they understand my care needs and the functioning of my household. She has thus ensured that my care through these last 10 months has been of excellent quality and smoothly executed.
Lashell is very knowledgeable, experienced, and responsible. She is also extremely caring.
She understands what I need, and provides it, before I can even ask. To Lashell, being a caregiver is not just a job—it is a calling. I am extremely blessed that she is my loving caregiver, my friend, and my Sister-in Christ."
