Everything that the aides do is stuff that I don't have to do anymore, and that's a big relief. They have quality home help aides. They're high quality, caring, competent people.

They have provided care for my dad. We have not had a consistent aide. We would like someone who is consistent.

It's more the caregiver that the agency has provided us than anything. Lavine is her name. We trust her. The situation has to do with COVID. It's trouble having people fill during the pandemic.

I have not had a nervous breakdown since they sent Dashon. I know that my father is not lying on the ground or starving. I really like that they sent a good caregiver.

The services have given my dad the help he needs. He mostly needs help with mobility and the services have provided him with that help. We like the owner and the administration in the agency.

The caregivers are also able to drive the client places because he doesn't have a license, as well as offer him companionship. The caregivers take the client out to eat and have no shame ordering expensive meals for themselves. The agency was also billing me incorrectly and when I brought it to their attention, they corrected a couple of the days. I asked them to check the past month for inconsistencies and they didn't get back to me about it, which bugged me.

They did do her laundry but not much else. The biggest thing is she doesn't know when they are coming or they don't show up, now, she's isn't great with her phone so some of it may be on her.

It is really needed. I don't get out as much with COVID, and it gets lonely. So her being friendly really was a big help. They should train people. Not everyone know how to make a bed properly.

The caregiver vacuums and does what I ask of her. I would like them to explain to the caregivers the duties they need to do before they go to the clients homes.

We couldn't exist without the service. They're necessary, or I would have to move my wife to a facility. I'm trying to avoid that. They could have better back-up when people call out.

The most helpful part is just having someone come in and check in. We are still working out what services we require. We don't have that much experience with what they offer yet. As time goes on, I would probably rate them higher.

The care coordinator is the best asset they have. They could have a deeper staff level so that there is no lack of care. They need to have people ready to fill in.

They have helped me the most by making sure that I am clean and everything is straightened out. I would like them to improve on giving the caregiver more information about what the client needs.

The home helpers were very attentive to my mother. We had three generations in the household. It was important to have someone here that could focus on my mother. It really helped me and helped her to be engaged. It helped her mental health as well. I like the communication with the office.

The caregiver maybe could have given more personal attention to my father. She seemed to want to talk about herself rather than work or listen to my father. The first girl that the company sent to us was good. The last caregiver that we had wanted to talk to my father more than do the work.

My mother died several years ago. I don't think they've had an impact but I don't think anyone could have but they've made my life easier. The only issue we've had is with the billing. There have been discrepancies with the charge per hour. They've always straightened it out, though.

They were greatly needed and helped us. Out of all the people that they sent, only one was excellent. There was some confusion on what was expected from the home helper. They were responsive with getting people to come. At one point, we had two people everyday for the day and the evening hours. They gave us coverage.

My level of disability is such that even while doing as much as I can, I can't keep up with everything. She's able to do those things that I can't do that allow me to have a normal living environment. They're really consistent. I'm a disabled veteran and before this agency, I had a lot of other agencies and I would go weeks without service or they wouldn't do a good job. With Home Helpers I always have the same girl and she's always been consistent.

I have kept the caregiver mostly for running errands and carrying out things for me. We had Home Helpers for some time when my husband was well. When we needed someone other than the regular person, the substitutes they sent were mediocre or poor, or they wouldn't show up at all. My husband no longer receives services, but I wouldn't recommend Home Helpers because of the unreliability of their substitutions.

They made it easier by having someone there to help him get in and out of the bed. It helped having someone here who had the extra knowledge. Generally, when the regular caregiver hasn't been able to come, they seem to have trouble finding someone else.

The caregiver argues instead of helping my loved one. I get a lot of phone calls saying that the caregiver can't handle my loved one. They should not leave medications around the house, they should be locked up.

It is absolutely necessary. If we haven't had the services, the family would have had to drop everything and helps, it gives us a break. The caregivers are for the most part quite attentive which is nice. There a bit of a communication problem with the office with any arrangements that we make.

Home Helpers had a great caregiver. She did a really wonderful job while she was caring for both of my in-laws.

Home Helpers have to follow through with what they say they're going to do. The first caregiver that came out here had no clue what it was that was required. I didn't tell the person that came what it was that I wanted done, and Home Helpers hadn't communicated that either.
