Transitions are never easy, and the desire to age in place or move in with one’s children has become an increasing trend. Specialty Care Services is a home health care agency in Bethesda, MD that takes every client case personally, ensuring that each of our patients and families receives the individualized care and support they need.
“Executive Director Al Simons worked personally with us to ensure a seamless transition in care and to see that some of the same staff from my mother, Viola’s, hospital stay accompanied her home. Her caregivers have not only assisted her with the activities of daily living, including bathing and dressing, but they have also attended medical appointments with her.
We can’t speak highly enough about these caregivers with whom we have developed a strong bond. My mother has bonded especially with Hawa Coulibaly, who she has long talks with on every topic from their favorite television shows to current political events. I have noticed a difference in my mother’s mood as she looks forward to Hawa’s company and being able to share her thoughts, feelings and opinions. She really cherishes the relationship she has been able to establish.
This has made all the difference for me, as I can now rest assured knowing that my mother is being taken care of and has found new friends in the process. Our choice of home health care provider was obviously the right one!”

Home Hospice Care
“It is with utmost warmth that I wish to thank you for the outstanding nursing aide services provided over the last week for my father, A. McDonald, who passed away peacefully at home this morning.
In particular, I want to commend the nursing services of Nadine Milton, Nursing Assistant, who assisted my father and our family during this most trying time. Nadine was here for eight hours during most nights providing highly professional, but extremely sensitive and tender care for my father. We simply could not have made it through this week without her support. Nadine followed the guidelines of the hospice nurse and home care staff, but also used her own good judgment and experience in how to proceed as my dad’s situation changed during the nighttime hours. The hospice home care nurse in charge of my father’s care was very impressed with the meticulous information regarding medications and nurses’ notes on my father’s condition provided by Nadine each day before she left.
Please know that the care my father received made it easier for him and for us to make it through the final days of his life in as much comfort as possible.”

Live-in Nursing Care
“On short notice, Adwoa Wilson was assigned to provide live-in, nursing assistant care for my father during the final year of his life. It was a difficult assignment as my father had limited mobility and significant health issues. Adwoa provided this care in-home on a 24/7 basis.
Ms. Wilson demonstrated in short order that she could assume full and competent responsibility for daily patient planning needs including overseeing the administration of medications, ensuring meals were prepared and scheduled appropriately, and undertaking bathing and hygiene and all other activities of daily living. She cheerfully and ably assumed all her home care nursing duties and as a self-starter consistently sought more ways to improve upon the physical environment to provide greater home care for her patient.
Ms. Wilson is an extraordinary individual and my family was fortunate to have such a person of high performance standards. We appreciate her willingness to extend herself to not only support my father’s needs but for those of the entire family. She is a person who exudes personal integrity and who really cares for the patient in her care. She is an outstanding nurse who is a treasure for those fortunate enough to have her as their caregiver.
Without hesitation, I highly recommend Specialty Care Services and their staff and I am confident that they will be an important and contributing member of any household with similar nursing care needs. I assure you that Ms. Wilson will be greatly missed by my family.”
