They are a good service. We only use them four hours a day. It wasn't a major set up. They do basic work around the house and I wouldn't have a good idea to make it better.

I had an issue with the communication with some of the caregivers because of the language barrier. At the beginning when I talked to someone, I told him that I didn't want to deal with the language barrier. They have been helpful, but I think that if we didn't have the language barrier, it would be a lot easier.

The caregiver we have right now is wonderful. The people running the company are really good about trying to be available and getting good people. She helps my loved one in getting dressed, going to the bathroom, and transferring her from the wheelchair to the chair. She also helps to prepare food.

The positive experience is that we've had great caregivers, but it did take a while to get them. We interviewed numerous caregivers to get the best one. They've been taking care of my husband for me, who has Parkinson's and dementia.

I would say that I've been very happy with the service I've received. I've had the same young woman for the last two years now. It's just excellent. The caregiver is very much herself, she gets everything ready. We go shopping or go to the bank. She knows how to do everything.

I would tell a friend that Thera Home Care is dependable, polite, and flexible and that they provide awesome caregivers. The only problem with the service is my father. He's lived alone for a long time and he likes to be a loner. At one point we had three times of service, and he has cancelled afternoons and weekends.

Thera Home Care is thorough, professional, efficient, and they have delightful people to work with. The client is still getting used to all of the care.

The caregivers from Thera Home Care are well-trained, and they do a good job. There are certain things like getting dressed and taking a shower that I'm unable to do myself, and the caregiver can do that for me.

Thera Home Care does not have a consistently high quality of caregivers that are staying long-term. It seems that Thera Home Care has an incredibly high turnover. Any good caregivers just leave after a few months, and the not so good ones remain. Thera Home Care is worrying me rather than relaxing me. I do not feel comfortable leaving the client with their current caregiver, and yet the caregiver is supposed to be my respite.

TheraCare of Redwood City, CA was wonderful in helping the family in caring for our mom in the last stage of her life. They provided in home care that allowed us to care for mom in her home. TheraCare was extremely responsive when we needed the skill help that we no longer could perform.. Within 8 hours of contacting TheraCare, Jamie met with us and had Reni providing the skill care. Though out their engagement with us TheraCare never left us without help. When our mom needed extra help, TheraCare immediately responded and got the extra help we needed. They were there at the end to help us with hospice. We rate all the care givers "rock stars" .

I would recommend Thera Home Care because they screen and match their caregivers and clients based on similarities, such as language, and I like that. Twice a week, Thera Home Care does the things I cannot do, like washing the dishes and handling sharp objects.

We chose TheraCare because of the versatility and skill of their caregivers.. They were always so gracious as our needs constantly changed. Their caregivers were highly skilled, professional, on time, and joyful. We would highly recommend them.

After almost a year and a half of incredibly frustrating home-care and assisted living experiences, I found Thera Home Care. Few caregivers lasted longer than a week, and there were constant problems with caregivers showing up late or not showing up at all. I was astounded that, after I was told, caregiver after caregiver, that the options were limited, Greg assembled a great team of genuinely caring caregivers who could provide 24/7 care for my 87-year-old mother. She had suffered a severe stroke which resulted in pronounced language deficits, mobility and strength deficits, and some personality issues. On top of this, she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma. I had an opportunity to see all her caregivers in action and was astounded at the rapport that they developed with such an ornery, reluctant, and challenging client. They had to do virtually everything for her: bathroom and toiletry needs; all meal preparation and some feeding; bathing and clothing; keeping the house clean (and everything exactly in its place--to the millimeter); laundry; handling all phone communication, including making doctor appointments and driving her to them, ordering prescription refills, and leading her through therapy exercises. Greg and the caregivers communicated any concerns to me but didn't ever come to me with problems they couldn't handle. But the main thing they did was form a genuine caring relationship with someone who was so resistant. I wish only that we had found Thera Home care a year and a half earlier--it would have made my mother's last years so much nicer.

We used Thera Home Care before for my dad. They were very good. They were doing 24-hour in-home care like bathing, cooking, and all the necessities. He was able to adjust to the caregiver very well.

I'm happy to recommend Thera Homecare highly. They're a great group. They have been very good to my parents. I came across them because the owner is a graduate of our school, and my father found him quite a while ago even independent of me. My dad had long-term care insurance, and he was using Greg to manage that when he was doing 4 hours a day, 5 days a week and now he is doing 24/7. I've known him from my side, but my dad found him independent of any connection I have. The nature of the service is 24-hour home health care and there are home health workers who administer meds to my parents, get them to bed, wake them up, get them dressed, and so on. My dad has Parkinson's, so he doesn't walk very well. My mom has slight dementia and can barely walk. So in terms of the quality of the health care, it is generally very good and generally excellent. On occasions, we will get a healthcare worker who isn't quite to my parents' satisfaction and within a day, she is replaced, and someone else much better comes in, so Greg is very responsive to making sure my parents are happy. My parents are very happy with them.
