It’s always gratifying to hear how our services are improving people’s lives. Here’s what people are saying about Cura…means care.
CURA MEANS CARE
My Mom and I were so appreciative of your time and consideration today, and so happy to meet you. The spectrum of Cura services and your care approach are both aligned with the help we were hoping to find, in particular the companion services and scaleable support for possible future needs. Also, your ethos which is focused on helping my Mom live her life on her terms and enabling her to engage in the activities that bring her joy are key. I’m in the process of completing the paperwork, and we are looking forward to becoming a client.
FROM A NEW FRIEND
CURA MEANS TRAINING
I would like to thank Cura For Care for the great new staff orientation training. We reviewed research and ways of speaking and helping people living with memory loss.
Having worked in the CNA field for years, I learned and tried some of new things. WOW, they were very helpful. Our way of helping clients helps our clients feel better about themselves and makes our time together FUN.
Everything in the training class with Mr. Moises was very informative and understandable. It was also great meeting new people and being able to relate.
CURA MEANS CARE
Cura provided my grandparents with the support they needed and took care of them like they were their own grandparents. I couldn't be more thankful for how Cura was able to support my family, and I know we are all fortunate that Cura's special care and expertise exists in our community.
CURA MEANS DEDICATION
I have had the pleasure to work with The Cura for Care staff for the last six years. They are a joy to work with and care very deeply about providing the best possible service to all of their clients. You can count on Cura for professionalism, dedication, and kindness, whether it be for yourself or a loved one. I highly recommend Cura for Care.
CURA MEANS RELATIONSHIPS
When I first began this job I wasn’t really sure I was cut out for caregiving. I wasn’t sure I had what it takes. Within the first few days of taking care of my client I was hooked! I began to develop a relationship with them and found that I absolutely love it! I have never had a job as rewarding as this. You fall in love with your clients and they fall in love with you. Thank you, Cura, for this life-changing opportunity!
FROM A CARE PARTNER
CURA MEANS EXCELLENCE
I just wanted to let you know about two of your care partners that I think are outstanding! Sharolyn and Tanya are both wonderful. They are so patient with the residents and both do an excellent job. I would like to request them for as many shifts as they can pick up. Thanks!

CURA MEANS RESPONSIVENESS
Mom in law needed assistance following surgery, it was fairly short notice. Cura was very responsive and was there when we needed them. At first more hours and then less hours to accommodate our wishes and our budget. They brought professional staff and 3 weeks later mom was great and we thanked them.
FROM A SON-IN-LAW
CURA MEANS THE SECOND MILE
Our family members, L & N recently moved closer to us so we could look after them better. They live in an independent living apartment in a building that includes assisted living and memory care. It was incredibly important to them that they retain their independence. N was struggling with ambulation and L was afraid to leave him alone at all so they spent every moment together.
N had a nasty fall followed by a 1 week hospital admission including a few nights in the ICU and then a transfer to a rehab hospital for an additional 2 weeks. L verbalized that she was unable to take care of him in his current state.
We have known Moises Paz for years in a non-professional role and we trust him so we called him to inquire about Cura for Care. Moises and a care provider from Cura for Care met us at the rehab hospital prior to N’s discharge, watched N work with his therapists and assessed the level of care he needed at that time. Moises had helpful advice, like having the rehab hospital order the durable medical equipment that was covered by Medicare, while N was still in the rehab hospital. It was much easier to do then than to play phone tag for days. He advised us to discuss which shower chair to get with the OT and which briefs N was using in the rehab hospital so I could order the same things at home before N arrived back home. Moises did a safety assessment of their apartment while N was still in the hospital. He advised us to raise the head of the bed, change out their very tall boxspring for a very short one and to get a bedrail. In fact, he helped install the bedrail when I wasn’t able to figure it out. Those changes made big impacts on reducing some of L and N’s challenges.
The day of discharge we had to pick N up at the rehab hospital and drive him to VUMC for a long awaited appointment with a very difficult to get into specialist. Moises lent us a transport wheelchair which was a life saver! He let us use that for several days, until the one I ordered arrived.
By the time we finished with the discharge and the specialist visit, we were all exhausted! Moises was waiting for us at the apartment lobby and came out and got N out of the car and into the wheelchair while I parked the car. I never had to leave N alone at all. Moises helped us get N settled in the apartment after being gone for 3 weeks and coming back with more challenges than when he was last home. Moises worked with L to make sure she was comfortable with all of the new changes to the apartment and to their new reality. He was very careful not to step on her toes!
At first, Cura for Care provided round the clock care which was incredibly helpful because my husband and I both got very sick while N was in the hospital and we were absolutely exhausted and 3 weeks behind with work. Cura took care of L&N for several days until we all determined that they could gradually space out the care visits more and more. Now that L & N are settled into their new routine, Cura comes a few times a week for a few hours so that L can go to pick up groceries, run errands and also go to a wellness class specifically fit for her needs. It is a night and day difference for L because she doesn’t have to worry that N is not looked after while she looks after herself for a little while.
My husband and I couldn’t feel any more gratitude to Moises and Cura for Care for looking after my husband’s parents and giving them a little bit of healthy space from each other. I don’t know what we would do without Cura for Care!
CURA MEANS CONNECTION
Cura for Care provides a wide range of services. I currently do not have family close by and Cura for Care provided transportation to and from my surgery as well as transportation to doctor's appointments. While I was at home recovering from my surgery I was in constant pain and Cura for Care staff went and got my medication for me since I was unable to drive. The caregivers at Cura for Care are very compassionate and I highly recommend them for your health care needs.
FROM A CLIENT
CURA MEANS PROFESSIONALISM
The team at Cura for Care have been a blessing in a critical time of home health needs within our family. The CEO Moises and all of his team have treated us as if we were family while always being courteous, caring, compassionate, and punctual in all of their interactions with our family. I would highly recommend Cura for Care.
CURA MEANS HELP
I was at home trying to recover from my surgery and I was in constant pain. I prayed to Jesus that God would heal me. Cura for Care was an answer to my prayers.
Cura staff went to get my medication for me since I was unable to drive. I was in such pain and they helped me in my time of need. There is a need out there for people who do not have family around to help them. I am very grateful that Cura was there for me.
CURA MEANS RELATIONSHIPS
"We are so happy with the development of the relationship between Mom and [her care partner] Rhonda. They have bonded so well and we see a great trust relationship built, which makes the family comfortable with the care Mom is receiving."
FROM A CLIENT'S DAUGHTER
CURA MEANS ASSISTANCE
I think Cura knows what I need more than I do right now. You are all angels...I can't find the words. This is truly leaving me speechless...and that's rare!
DAUGHTER OF A CLIENT
CURA MEANS VIGILANCE
Thank you for noting the problem with my father's blood pressure medication following his recent hospital stay. You were alert in noticing a significant change in dosage on a prescription and immediately brought it to the doctor's attention. No telling what complications were avoided by your actions. Thank You.
FROM A CLIENT'S SON
CURA MEANS INCLUSION
Thank you for the care you provided for our mother last weekend. Salisha was amazing and we never had a worry knowing she was there. I think the highlight was Salisha bringing mom out on to the dance floor at the reception to "dance" with the family. Absolutely priceless. I can't thank you enough for everything.
FROM A FAMILY MEMBER
CURA MEANS ACCOMMODATION
Thank you for accommodating our difficult scheduling situation. You are the only care agency who accommodated our need for no minimum hours and flexible schedules. Both caregivers use their common sense and generally see for themselves what needs doing and then do it. It’s a relief for me to know that my wife is receiving quality care.
FROM A GRATEFUL HUSBAND
CURA MEANS ATTENTION
Moises, I would like to thank you for your care and concern for my father during his illness. The time you spent with him gave him immeasurable pleasure. You paid attention to every detail of his care and made sure the nurses attended to his every need. Our constant phone calls to you day and night did not overwhelm you, and you always responded and answered every question. To say thank you would never be enough. Your concern and love is appreciated more than you know.
FROM A CLIENT'S DAUGHTER
CURA MEANS EXTRA
"I spoke with my mother; she thinks so highly of you. I know you are doing and giving much more than we are paying you for, and I want you to know how much I appreciate that you care!"
