These people really cared and stayed with the problem until they got my family help. They found a quality person who came into my aunt's home every day to help her with activities of daily living. That freed up my cousin to be able to keep her job. Otherwise she would have had to quit to care for her mother.

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

When the first caregiver ran into a personality clash with my aunt, JEVS worked with us to find someone who met our family's needs.
