We were very pleased with our caregiver however the billing department staff was unprofessional. I would not recommend because of this. You do not want to have to deal with a threatening person after a loved one has died.

My family decided to use this in home service for my grandmother who was suffering from alzheimers. The staff was professional and courteous to me and family. They always went the extra mile to see that my grandmother was comfortable in our home. Our attendant became part of our family, she was wonderful and caring. She went above and beyond the call of duty with my grandmother including talking with her, playing board games , and even teaching her how to surf the net and look at pictures our her grandchildren through emails. She really became a friend to my grandmother. She always spoke very highly of her company and you could tell she took pride in her work and was cheerful and happy to do it. She was a ray of sunshine to an ailing older woman and her family that was devastated at her declining condition. We diffidently recommend this service to other families.
