Willie Peterson II can't say enough good things about the home health care services he receives, or about Lynn Adams, the registered nurse who visits a few times a week to care for him at his Decatur, Ga., home. "If not for them, I'd be up the creek without a paddle," he said. Or in a nursing home. Peterson, 62, was paralyzed from the waist down by a falling tree in 1998 and needs regular skilled medical attention. Now he has personalized care that keeps him out of the hospital and feeling independent.
