I am a current client of this provider

My big, huge extended family are so thankful to Donna and her exceptional staff of Chris, Kaitlyn and Linda for the care, and friendship, that they show to my two elderly aunts and two elderly uncles. From the time Donna walked in the house to do a needs assessment for the group, we have known that this was the correct step to take in providing excellent home health care, as well as activities of daily living for these folks. They have been accepting of the entire extended family as we try to provide feedback and some insight into their needs. I hear nothing but positive comments from my aunts and uncles with the care that they are receiving. The only additional thoughts that we have concerning the present care is that we would like to increase the number of hours per day that we will have staff coming in as we all believe that the crew would benefit from this. My thanks to Home Help Companions.

I spoke with about 3 different companies and Home Help Companions seemed the most willing to work with me. They're very kind and compassionate. I was unable to walk and my husband has just gotten a job in Florida and is leaving the next day. I was scared to death. I could not be left alone. We're self paying. They were able to handle my needs. They were here with me about 12 hours. They would come in at 8:00 in the morning. They help me with my bathroom needs, fix me breakfast, and stay with me during the day. She might leave for a little while and then I have another caregiver come in from like 3:00 pm or 4:00 pm until 12:00 midnight at first. They were just so kind. They take really good care of their clients. They make you feel like family. They've been taking care of me now since March and they've just been wonderful. They also take me to my doctor's appointments because I can't drive. They work with me with whatever I need. They just make you feel cared for and that you're not just a number. They make you feel that they really care about you and your welfare. They make you feel like family.

A lot of things they provide are exactly what we needed for my grandfather. Some of the other agencies don't provide everything that Home Help Companions do. They're very professional. They have people that can be counted on. They fill in the times that I can't do. They basically do whatever he needs like fix meals for him. It's been a really good experience with them.

I am a past client of this provider

I went out on Google and typed in Home Help for the local area and they came up. I clicked on something that let them know that I had clicked on it and they called me. I was very impressed with Donna who owns the company. I enjoyed talking with her. She's a little bit younger than I am and she's running her own business and everything. She explained to me why she started it, because of a situation when her father was in his later stage of life and the troubles that she had with home health companies.

My mother in law is 93 years old and today I had to put her in a nursing home. We only had their services for probably less than a month. For 3 days a week, my mother in-law agreed to have a young woman come in the mornings and in the evenings. She would help her get up and fix breakfast and come back in the evenings to help her fix something to eat and help put her to bed. My mother in-law is only willing to do it 3 times a week. She's still one of those feisty 93-year olds that does not want help.

We had to take her to the emergency room yesterday and she finally realized that she needs more help than what she can afford. Anyway, I do not interact with the caregiver, Rachel, personally. My mother in-law did. She found that she's attentive and did everything she ask. I liked Chris, their administrator or case manager person. Both he and Donna made us all feel comfortable as far as whatever my mother in-law wanted and they're always there. We just appreciate all their attention. They didn't overlook her because she's 93 and she's feeble. They have respect for her which is what my husband and I appreciated.

Home Help Companions is just close by to the area where we live. They had different caregivers come in on schedule and we settled on one who's name is Sarah. She's very concerned about my mom. She takes very good care of her. She has a daily log that she keeps on mom's blood pressure and sugar and her vital signs. She takes care of her personal needs too. We're very pleased with her. We've had Home Help Companions since July and I'm really happy having them around.
