Take Care Supports the American Cancer Society

Take Care Private Duty Home Health Care and Susanne S. Wise, RN, MBA, Take Care's owner and executive administrator, proudly sponsored the ACS's 10th Annual Cattle Baron's Ball. For nearly a century, the American Cancer Society has fought for every birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. By taking what we've learned through research and turning it into what we do, we have contributed to a 15 percent decrease in the overall cancer death rate between the early 1990s and 2005. That means that we helped avoid about 650,000 cancer deaths and created the potential for more birthday celebrations. Overall, 11 million cancer survivors in America will celebrate a birthday this year.

What Our Clients Have to Say

Sue contacted and vetted more than 20 care providers for my very important client and quickly weeded out those that were not up to par with the high standards set by Take Care. My client was very appreciative of the referrals shared and was equally impressed with our close community contacts who were willing to help us help our clients. This is yet another example of why so many of us feel comfortable working with and sharing our clients with Sue Wise and her company, Take Care.
