Here are testimonials for Paulla Weddle and the Reliable Recover Team from happy clients.

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing this letter on behalf of Paulla Weddle, whom I had the pleasure of meeting following surgery earlier this year.

Although I had originally planned to care for myself, it was strongly recommended that I have someone, at least for the first couple of days, to assist with the ice packs, medication, etc. and as a safeguard “just in case”.

As I am a very independent person, I really thought that I could handle things on my own. I hate to admit it, but I am so glad that I had arranged with Paulla to help me out. It would have been nearly impossible for me to have done everything by myself.

She was waiting for me after surgery, drove me to a nearby Hotel and took me to my follow-up visit the next day. Hourly, throughout the entire night, she applied iced wash cloths to control swelling, made sure I kept hydrated and medicated. She escorted me to the restroom and on one trip, I was not real steady and almost passed out – I would hate to think what might have happened if I had and she hadn’t been there. I had no idea how vulnerable I was & it was pretty scary.

In addition to being very independent, I am also a very private person. Paulla somehow managed to completely respect my privacy, make me feel safe without being intrusive, knew exactly what to do & when to do it. The amazing thing is that I looked pretty ghastly, yet she was not the least bit taken aback and was as nurturing as anyone could possibly be (keep in mind, we had never met before this).

I know this will sound corny, but in my mind, Paulla is quite literally an Angel and I would gladly recommend her to anyone considering assistance after surgery.

Sincerely,

SB

P.S. Paulla did not tell me until after the fact, but agreed to care for me in the middle of her Birthday getaway in Palm Springs – she drove all the way to Coronado and back to Palm Springs! How many people do you know that would do that, let alone a total stranger!

It gives me great pleasure to write this letter of commendation to convey my complete satisfaction with Paulla Weddle, the caretaker who looked after me during my recent surgery. After scheduling my surgery date, I began the process of telephone interviews in hopes of finding an experienced caretaker to help me through my post-op recovery. As soon as I began talking to Paulla, my search ended. I intuitively knew I had found the right person. Ms. Weddle emitted warmth through her voice. I could sense her nurturing, her compassion and her genuine commitment to her role as caretaker. She even extended an offer to meet me in person prior to surgery if this would help me in the decision process. I declined her kind invitation, as I didn’t feel it necessary, though I truly respect and appreciate the extra ‘unpaid’ time she was willing to spend with me. The communication by phone was enough to squelch any anxieties I might have had in entrusting my care to someone I didn’t even know. Paulla was ‘genuine’ and I knew I had found the right person. In addition, her fees were very fair and competitive with other caretakers I had phoned.

Paulla was punctual with her transportations duties. She picked me up after my surgery, and also took me to and from the doctor’s office for my next day post-op appointment. Her demeanor was always uplifting, and I never saw her without a smile. I truly believe that this kind of ‘positive’ spirit is imperative for the healing process. She oversaw my taking of medication and prepared light meals as needed. She changed my ice packs consistently during the day and throughout the night, to keep the swelling in check. She was conscientious in keeping me well hydrated. It was such a comfort just to know that Paulla was in the next room ready to help me in any way necessary.

I would highly recommend the caretaking services provided by Paulla Weddle. I truly believe that having a feeling of peace and giving my trust over to Paulla is the reason why my recovery went so beautifully! And speaking of ‘beautiful’, Paulla is a beautiful lady both inside and out!

I am so very thankful that I had Paulla Weddle’s hand to hold on to.

Sincerely,

LR San Diego, CA

Having plastic surgery for any person is somewhat of a daring, yet scary, yet promising event. It is a huge, personal decision about important spiritual, emotional and physical parts of one’s life. Sometimes, as it happens, family members are so emotionally attached, that it becomes difficult to have them involved in the “intricacies” of the procedure.

This is where PAULLA WEDDLE comes in.!!!! Paulla is a “special” kind of human being to help one “over the hump” of getting all of these issues in carefully prepared order. She was with me from beginning to end. The comfort of knowing that an experienced, compassionate, person would be there was so reassuring. I would have her with me “in a minute” if I ever chose to do something like this again. It took a LOT of worry off my family also, to know that I was in such good care.

Thank you, Paulla JH Rancho Santa Fe, CA

I just wanted to drop a note to let you know how much I appreciate having Cheryl here after my surgery. I really had no idea how much I would need a nurse but after I got home it became clear. The first 24-48 hours are very rough. I would have just laid there and slept but Cheryl was vigilant about my meds and the icing.

She was very quiet and very nonintrusive while doing an outstanding job. I don’t plan on doing this again but I do understand that as Lanny and I age there can be intermittent need for home care and I would not hesitate to use your service again. I also would not hesitate to give a good recommendation regarding your company.

Again, thanks for the good care and for providing a person like Cheryl to give it.

Dear Paulla,

My post surgery care in Cheryl’s capable and caring hands was excellent. Cheryl stayed with me throughout my night, driving me to and from the clinic and remaining by my side, tending to my every need. What a wonderful, essential and caring way to begin my surgical recovery. I truly appreciate your services.

Best Regards, J

Hello Paulla,

I am writing to thank you for my care by Cheryl. She did an excellent job of nursing. She was a welcomed visitor as far as our pets were concerned. Our dog loved her pats. The cat was not scared (he is a scared “E” cat usually. Our cares about our pets not being allowed were non-existant. What a friendly and caring nurse/ I know that my husband was relieved by my needs being cared for. The transportation to and from the doctor’s office was pleasant with friendly conversation. What GREAT GAL!

Sincerely, MC

Dear Paulla,

I am writing in regards to the care that I received from Cheryl this past July 12. I was very nervous about the whole thing, every aspect from the surgery to the after care. I hate being fussed over and do not make a good patient. Cheryl put all my fears to rest as her care giving was non-intrusive, she did what was needed but did not stifle me. I was very grateful that she was with me and would highly recommend her services to anyone going through a surgical procedure.

Thank you Cheryl!!! You were awesome.

Hi Paulla, I feel more alert today, so I thought I would write to you and to Patti. Gregor and I were both overwhelmed the first night of the surgery, and didn’t quite know what to do. He called Patti, and she calmly directed and assured him. She need not have done that, as she was really due to come over only two days later. But we appreciated her calm and her directions. The day she came, she took charge. She took meticulous notes. And when Gregor asked her if she could stay an extra day, she readily agreed even though we did not really give her any notice. Being in a hotel, I was very anxious about having someone in the same room as me, as I am very claustrophobic and unused to company. But Patti was quiet and very respectful of my space. She even left the room to give me privacy while I talked to Gregor on the phone. She stepped in when I needed it, and helped when I asked, thereby giving me the space I needed. She is also very easy company, lifting my spirits with light hearted stories about her family. She also did a load of laundry for me, when I was running out of the garments I needed to wear. That was definitely above and beyond what she needed to do. Thank you so much for helping us when we needed it, and reassuring us when Gregor had to travel. I made a tough time less tough. I appreciate it greatly. G

 

Dear Paula,

I do not think anyone is ever quite prepared for surgical recovery. The best one can do is hope for a speedy recovery and be prepared. Reliable Recovery made a difference with the advance paperwork, preparation list and the exceptional care I received. Patti was right there administering to all my needs and gave me the reassurance I needed to just rest. I was glad she stayed with me for 2 days and nights, and I needed it. She thought of everything and was very attentive and kind. I am glad Dr. Humber required a caregiver following surgery and that it was your service. I would gladly recommend your service to anyone requiring post surgical care. Once again, Patti was awesome. Thanks for taking such good care of me and the attentive follow-up.

Hi Paulla,

Rita was very punctual and nice. She cared for me like a mother would and I highly recommend her. SHe even wrote down which pills to take after she left so I would not be confused. Thanks again for having a service like this, as some of us do not have dear ones to care for us when we need them.

I’ll pass on your name and it was nice doing business with you both.

Cheers,

P

Dear Paulla, I want you and Rita both to know how great it was to have her here taking care of me. She knew just what to do and when. Rita was patient and kind and thorough, reading through my post-op notes and highlighting important information for me for after she left. She also labeled all my meds on top, which made it helpful to my husband. I felt like I had a guardian angel with me, as I came home from surgery. I would highly recommend your services to anyone in need. Thank you so much! Marilyn P

To whom it may concern:

I am writing you this letter to let you know how pleased I am with Susan, the nurse who took care of me when I had surgery. I originally spoke with Paulla Weddle who is the Executive Director of Reliable Recovery, Inc. After talking with Paulla, I immediately had a lot of my anxiety level drop. I was extremely anxious about my surgery and not knowing was the hardest part for me. She put my fears to a minimum. She had a very calming voice when I talked to her on the phone. She called me the day before surgery to inform me that Susan would be taking care of me through my recovery.

The moment I came out of surgery, Susan was by my side comforting me and reassuring me that everything was going to be okay. The one thing I do remember about Susan was she told me I looked beautiful even though I looked and felt like I had been hit by a truck. She was very positive and upbeat, which is exactly what I needed in order to get through this ordeal. Susan was very compassionate, kind, loving and I can go on and on. She was by my side the full 48 hours and came to my every need. My 9 year old sone was very sad when she had to leave. He still talks about how nice she was to him.

I would highly recommend Susan to anyone who is considering having Reliable Recovery look after them.

Hi Paulla,

Susan did an excellent job! I did not have a worry in the world while she was here!

I would use your service again and recommend you to friends.

Thank you and Susan for your special care.

To Whom IT May Concern: I am writing this letter in regards to the services of Paulla Weddle. Her business, Reliable Recovery Inc., provides overnight nursing care for patients like myself traveling to undergo cosmetic procedures.

Susanne was my caregiver, and when I woke from surgery, I will never forget hearing her kind voice. She was such an amazingly sweet natured person to have watch over me when I so needed a pair of caring hands. She took me to a local Whole Foods to get the appropriate food/drink I needed while recovering in my hotel room and once we got back to my hotel, she cared for me like I was one of her own. I absolutely without a doubt could never have gone through this procedure without her. I thank Paulla and Susanne from the bottom of my heart for their caring spirits through this whole process.

For anyone considering traveling to undergo any sort of cosmetic procedure, I would highly recommend the caregivers of reliable Recovery! They are an invaluable part of the whole process. I would be happy to talk with anyone over the phone that might want a reference in person. If there were a Fodor’s for these services, these folks would definitely earn five plus stars!

Regards, MJ

To Whom It May Concern:

I came to San Diego from out of town for a Breast Augmentation. Needless to say, traveling alone to undergo any type of cosmetic surgery, especially more invasive surgeries can be a daunting process. But this was not the case under the care of the caregivers from Reliable Recovery. They were always there to answer my questions and calm and console any nerves I had prior to my travels. From the time I arrived in San Diego prior to surgery throughout my entire stay, they conducted themselves in a manner that was nothing less than perfect.
