I have worked at Clepper Manor for almost 7 years, I have worked with numerous Nurse Aid Graduates of Health Link Services, they are the most competent,reliable,compassionate staff I have seen in years. Thank You Health Link Services!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their end product, their nurse aids are top notch in my eyes.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

They could really make a difference in the geriatric population quality of care!
