“I really needed assistance. If you are half blind, a simple task like cutting your finger nails becomes very hard. That is why I am so thankful that I was able to get help from Pacific Homecare. They have set these principles like love, care and professionalism and my support workers implement them and put them all into practice. I really like that.” – Pacific Homecare client
