What our customers say.

My mother came home from the hospital and needed arrangements for hot meals. ICare set this up very quickly, the food was terrific, my mother was very happy with the selection and the helpful drivers. She looks forward to their visit, they are so friendly and it took the pressure off us to be there to prepare her meals.
