Esther our Aide was just what my mother needed. Always helpful, sweet and caring. She reminded my mother to do her exercises, when her doctors' appointments were scheduled, and when it was time to take her medication (she did not dispense). Esther was a frequent communicator to the family through text messages. My mother will miss having her coffee brought to her each morning by Esther. Esther was instrumental in returning my mother to independence. Thank you, Esther and Aquinas!
I was very pleased by the services provided by all the staff at Aquinas Healthcare. My mom was well cared for by Josephine. She treated her like her own grandmother. It gave me peace of mind that my mom was safe, loved and that her every need was taken care of. When Josephine needed some time off, Florence also did a great job.
We were looking for an aide for my father who was in the early stage of Alzheimer's. Aquinas was recommended to us. We interviewed many companies, After meeting with the owners and nurse Karen, we chose Aquinas. The best decision we ever made. The owners were very knowledgeable about the healthcare field and the billing end of it. They picked up the phone every time I called. Their rates were reasonable especially due to the service we were receiving. Josephine was our live in aide & spent three years with us. If Josephine had time off, Aquinas never failed to find us a replacement aide. All of which were lovely and attentive. To sum it up... I am including a quote from my son's speech at my Dad's funeral. Josephine, there are no words to describe how much you meant to me and my family, As a matter of fact, you became part of the family. You had one of the hardest jobs in the world. And you never complained one time. I don’t know how many times I can say thank you as it will never be enough. I hope we can keep in touch. My Dad was treated like a Prince and was thriving. I always had peace of mind that he was safe (even through the pandemic) and well cared for. Josephine thoroughly enjoyed her time with him. They took walks, watched game shows, did puzzles, played games and did his PT exercises with him. He was always engaged and I truly believe that that helped slow the progression of the disease. Josephine knew how to motivate him to do things which was not easy. She did it with a smile. Aquinas is a top notch agency. I HIGHLY recommend them to care for your loved one and believe me, I have high standards when it comes to my family. Wendy

In addition to dealing with Aquinas Healthcare professionally, I’m currently using them to care for my parents & couldn’t be more pleased. - Linda
I have always had a great experience with Aquinas. They have helped in many short notice situation and management is very hands on. T.S from Livingston
Management does everything they can for you! They are honest and trustworthy! Each caregiver is different and they have a great staff! - John C. from Chatham
John and the team at Aquinas Get my highest recommendation for personalized service, 24/7 and very fast response to calls and emails and highly qualified caring and supportive aids. Our mom had a heart attack and needed 24/7 support while in the hospital, in rehab, at home and ultimately in hospice. The team from Aquinas was there to support us each step of the way and was there holding my mothers hand at the end when we couldn’t be there. We found great comfort in their care and support and I am sure you will too. Thank you Eric Spiel.

My Dad had sudden onset Dementia. I was looking at the best Assisted Living Communities for him. I found a wonderful one near my house..but needed something until a room was available. Someone recommended a home healthcare company called Aquinas. I planned on using them for a few weeks…that was MONTHS ago. I have changed my mind after my experience with Aquinas. Keeping my Dad in his home was definitely the right decision. Josephine lives with my Dad 24/7. If I had a sister , she probably would not be as good as Josephine. My Dad is thriving! He has gained some well-needed weight and is very content. He was easily agitated before. Josephine has created a perfect routine with him and that seems to be helping him a lot. I spoke to my Dad last night and asked him what he did. He said” Josephine made a nice dinner, and we did my word puzzles and are now watching the Yankees” She takes him for daily walks and listens to his stories from the past. She makes him smile and laugh. I can’t even begin to tell you the comfort that Aquinas has given me. John and Matt have given me a lot of guidance. Nurse Karen has been very involved with my Dad’s care. Trust me, I am not easy to please… My Dad deserves the best and that is what he is getting!!!!!

We have been using Aquinas Healthcare for almost a year. Their caregivers are professional and have been very supportive for my wife’s needs. The caregivers are reliable, even in bad weather they are here. The RN often checks in to monitor the care and services we are receiving. Aquinas’ rates were the cheapest we found for an agency who’s employees were licensed and fully insured. – Jack
