"I find our nurse to be incredibly capable and a very hard worker. She is also a problem solver, an innovative thinker as well as being quite respectful with my 80-year-old father at his care center. I like our nurse to come to the quarterly care conferences at the care center because my 3 siblings live in different cities and they can receive a copy of her report on all we discussed at the conference. This saves me so much time and effort. She also can identify problem areas and discuss possible solutions during our meetings. That way she is also very helpful for the nursing staff! Any way you look at it, my dad gets better care because of Matrix."
