They have given me a caring and willing caregiver. They keep my home clean and feed me and bring in groceries for me. I like that I had a very nice caregiver, and she was very helpful for me. They are very caring and knowledgeable, and I have been treated well by them.

If my mom did not have the care that she has she would be in skilled nursing and probably would not be alive. She couldn't stay where she is without the care she is getting. The ladies that are caring for my mother really like my mom. My mother is thrilled with all the care she is getting. She has 3 to 4 caregivers during the week.

He does my clothes washing and such as well. He is good at doing a wide variety of things. He should do things a little more often. I can always use more hours. With my home care helper, sometimes he forgets his keys or we have to remind him to develop a plan on things.

Physically, we cannot be there ourselves so we need it. They are there for us and helping her, they are more experienced in this environment than we are. I like that the staff has listened to us. It feels very personalized, based on our feedback. They have really adapted to our needs.

They can improve on the basics of housekeeping. I figure that they all cannot do everything. The caregiver I have is pretty good. There are a few areas where she can improve.

The services have been a high impact on my life because they help me with medical transportation. Without their help, I couldn't have gotten my treatment. I like that the caregivers at Home Helpers go out of their way to help their clients and that they are a can-do type of company.

I was extremely impressed with Home Helpers of SC Valley. Ketan, the owner of agency was extremely prompt in getting back to me with any concern. He worked with us to get the best possible fit for a caregiver and provide the services we needed to care for my father. The caregiver we used was unfailingly prompt, skilled, helpful, and easy to work with. I recommend this agency quite highly.

They arrive on time.,They come in with a positive attitude. They relate to us well and we get along with them well. It has been good to have such positive people. The people they sent to me are very willing to listen to me and do what I need them to do. They didn't question me and they do it all with a smile on their faces.

The gentlemen we have is like a family member. He takes care of my father and that takes a lot of burden off of me, because I have a business to run. We were very lucky to find the right help and the right kind of person.

I was very appreciative of the service this group provided to my mother daily. We needed the home helper to come in to watch mom take her prescription medicines. The home helpers were great and very pleasant to my mom. They made her smile. They were timely. Ketan the business owner was always available by phone to us, so if we had something come up or if a home helper was delayed with another customer (very rarely did that happen) he would send another girl out. He was able to work with us on a very short notice. So I have no hestition in recommending this fine company. I would definitely use these services again.

Home Helpers & its owner, Ketan, and their caregivers did an outstanding job supporting my father and me. Ketan has become a friend through it all as have the caregivers he provided. The caregivers were always on time, provided helpful ideas for my father's care. Dad developed a strong bond with his caregivers. Ketan was able to increase hours of support from the V.A. for my father at his own initiation. I highly recommend Home Helpers.

They help with transporting and care when we go out. We are both feeble. I use a walker and wheelchair. My husband needs a lot of help, too. They will do anything right away that is within their specification. They have very good contact with their patients, so they are very concerned. They do things right away. We have had some good people sent out.

I live on the east coast and my mother lives on the west coast, so the agency has been my eyes and ears. I couldn't imagine being comfortable without having these services. The quality of our caregivers is top notch. They're patient, even though my mother isn't easy to work with.

If I didn't have them, I don't know what I would do. It has a great impact. They are very helpful, and that is why they are called Home Helpers. They are always there when you need them, and that is the important thing.

It is a big help because my wife is always asking for things. I can't get anything done with that. With another person there, she can ask her and talk to her. That frees me up so that I can do things for myself. I really like working with them. At first, I didn't know anybody there, but I know them now.

I liked them helping out with some of the household chores. They gave me relief so that I wasn't on the job 24/7. I found that they were very helpful and supportive if somebody couldn't come. They were very good about sending people.

They have helped me the most by having someone reliable to be there for my mother, so I don't have to worry when I can't be there. I like the individual caregiver without a doubt. The quality of the caregivers makes a huge difference.

They didn't call to say they were running late. There was no communication. The gal in the office said she would be here at nine o'clock. She didn't show, but I already had an engagement scheduled. I had to leave. They didn't show up until eleven.

The caregivers were phenomenal because they actually interacted with my father, and they were very caring. I like how they had background checks for their employees and for my father's health. We didn't get that from another agency that we used.

They sent good people. The emotional and physical support helped me the most. I don't usually make recommendations, so it's not likely I would recommend them. They're also expensive and I don't really like their billing system, but other than that they're fine. The care was very good.

She would cut his nails and take him out to lunch. My caregiver is moving, so I need to get a new one. My caregiver was wonderful. She was great with my husband, and I am sorry to see her go.

My loved one is very independent, so we only use them when we need driving. It gives me time to rest. I like that the caregiver is very helpful.

I want a superb job, especially in cleaning. I want it very clean, but she doesn't do it very well. She is supposed to clean up the room that my husband occupies as well. I am not really satisfied with her performance.

The services have made a big change for me and have had a great impact on my life. The caregiver is great, but the company is not too great. I do not agree with the owner's practices.

They are only there one day a week but they were able to give the general caregiver respite care. They are always responsible when we have an issue.

They have saved my life and my sanity. They help with cooking, cleaning, and just being here and talking to them. They are helping the whole family by giving us a break. Everything is up front. They are not hiding everything. They first showed me their bond, and that put me at ease.

They should hire people that are on time, organized, and committed to doing whatever is necessary for the client. They need to get people that are more responsible and on time.

It has been really helpful because we have a reliable and kind helper assisting. Being reliable has been very great. The service has been really good. So far, we've had three assistants here and two out of the three have been wonderful.

They are helping me get some of my stuff put away and more organized. I had to put together a portable closet, and the caregiver just kept working on it, never gave up, and never complained.

The caregiver is very sweet to me and is prepared. They could lower the price a little. However, all caregiving agencies are really expensive. They are here when I need someone to take care of my parents, and they are very flexible.

I would be likely to recommend Home Helpers because someone in the office was really helpful, he gave me good advice, and made sure things were set up exactly the way they were supposed to be for me. These services had a significant impact on my life because I needed this to recover from my illness. The caregivers drove me to and from my care, and they stayed after to make sure I was okay. I would not be able to recover as well without the services from Home Helpers.

I would tell a friend that Home Helpers has provided a human element for me. The caregiver from Home Helpers takes me out to get my groceries and I appreciate that she is able to take her little truck and bring home plants for me.

We’re very happy with Home Helpers. They came out right away and helped me, so I’m glad that someone is working with my mom with a range of skills. The caregivers have good attitudes and are good listeners. They’re very quick to respond and have been helpful. My mom is in her 90s, and her short-term memory is going, so it’s helpful to have someone who doesn’t mind repeating information to her because she’ll ask the same question over and over. She needs someone to drive for her, so someone drives for her. They come on time and check 24 hours ahead to make sure that everything is fine. It’s a good value and a good consistent thing we can count on. They keep us informed by texting and e-mails.

Home Helpers is very good at communicating and at being very informative. Home Helpers makes my life easier through the flexibility they offer and how they can be here after one phone call. It makes my job easier knowing I can count on them.

They worked for my uncle who was very very sick until he passed away. They actually became like family to us given that we're really picky. Home Helpers is just exceptional. They're very caring, loyal, and loving. I feel safe with them. I can actually take a day off with no worries at all. They'll do anything I say. They're always so very willing. They're always there and always available. They're fantastic. There's nothing wrong I can say about them.
