The following are comments from surveys sent to case managers and professionals:
My uncle has been in Progressive Residential Service care for several years. After working closely with the manager, Lucrecia, and her staff at Romeo I can’t say enough good things about the home atmosphere and activities they provide. Having been involved in the long term care field previously I can say by comparison PRS is top notch. The staff are caring and involved with the well being of each client. My uncle thrives in his home.
