Why people love Alska
“The 867 care notes we created speak volumes for how wonderful our family was in posting information on their visits to Mom for those of us that were not able to be there throughout this process.”
“We were looking for the best of care for our aging mother at a price we could afford. älska filled the bill by keeping the lines of communication open and flowing on a day-to-day basis.”
“alska was the best means of keeping our family unified and on the same page information wise, whether we were in the same city, out of state or, in some cases, out of the country!”
“The value we received from alska was priceless. It was a gift to be able to keep everyone in the loop and see any patterns of behavior and care. We could catch changes or issues faster because we were tracking care each day.”
“The images were such a joy for me, and the documents page with Mom's advanced directive was wonderful. It helped knowing who her choice was for making medical decisions.”
