TESTIMONIALS:

"I contracted Shylo to provide in home 24 hour care for my mother from Dec 2007 to her death in November 2010. My mother had serious and complex health issues during this time but thanks to the extraordinary care by all members of the Shylo team my mother survived years longer than doctors predicted".  Mrs. M. M. 2011

Shylo Nursing has provided me with a sense of absolute care for my parent, knowing that she is well taken care of around the clock, 365 days a year, that her daily life and routines are met with compassion and understanding by the staff. I would without hesitation recommend Shylo Nursing to anyone who finds themselves in the need of their particular services, knowing full well that they will provide the best possible care for a loved one”. Mr. R. S. 2010
