Home Health Services

“The PMC Home Health staff provided my mother-in-law, Judi, with the highest quality and professional care during her battle with cancer. More importantly they provided her with a sense of security and support that allowed her to remain independent and at home during her illness. Our community is so fortunate to have this service. It was a blessing for Judi and our family.” –Trina, Meeker Resident
