SCHAS provided in home service to my father suffering from dementia in order for my mother to take some time away from her intense caregiver role. When my mother needed assistance a number of years later, I contacted SCHAS again. The loving care provided to my mother was helpful to her and reassuring to me. Because of my very positive experience with SCHAS, I currently serve on the board of directors. The dedication to our community as a not-for-profit and the commitment to provide well-trained in home services is unparalleled in our region.
