I used Comfort Keepers, and they did great. Although they're really the only ones I found in town that's more experienced in taking care of someone that was paralyzed from the chest down. The reason I needed them was because I was going to be out-of-town for 10 days. I am my daughter's caregiver, and I only use them when I can't do it or when I'm going to be out-of-town. For one thing, I had interviewed a couple of other services that ended up they couldn't do it because they didn't have someone who was qualified to do her BAL program, which involves putting her suppository in the morning, and they could. Basically, it's the dressing and getting her into the chair and the BAL program because there aren't a lot of people that know how to do the BAL program with someone who's paralyzed and can't do it themselves, and they did a good job at that. The reason I'm giving them a 4 is because she's had problems with some bladder infections since I was gone, and I don't know if it had to do with them not cleaning her up good enough or not. A lot of them out there make you pay a minimum four hours per day to come out, but they didn't do that. We only needed them for two hours a day, and they charged us three hours most of the time just because they were coming quite a long way. The person was from way southeast of Huntsville, and we live way north of Huntsville, but they did really well with working for lesser price too. We'll call them again when we need them.
