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.
