They could maybe have a little bit better communication with me regarding my loved ones or when there is a change in the aide so when I call over, I won't be surprised. Sometimes it's not easy to care for my loved ones. They are helpful directly to my loved ones because the aide gives my them their day.

I am happy with the quality of care that is being provided. The caregiver does a great job. She is proactive about doing things and has a great demeanor with my loved one. They have freed up some of my time to allow me to do the things I need to.

I only have two hours with them. I would like more like three than two hours with them. They allow me to do things that I can't do for myself, like bathing.

The girl that I have coming to see me is wonderful. I have to have someone give me my medication and my caregiver does that for me. She also helps me with housekeeping and goes with me up to a clubhouse to exercise with me.

They are convenient and all the caregivers are certified. There are times that I've had to call at the last minute and the CNA wasn't able to stay, so we found someone else who fit our criteria. Home Care Assistance employs trustworthy people.

They are very reliable because the person shows up on time when they are supposed to. They provide companionship with my father and assistance for his health care needs in the early morning.

They're efficient and I've had no problem with her being late and I'm very happy with their service. She is always here ready to help me. She does anything I need. When she comes in the door, she would ask if she can dust or clean for me.

I would tell a friend that Home Care Assistance is very reliable. They have helped with my loved one's daily needs, like showering and that kind of thing.

All the people they've sent are reliable, professional, and caring. I think their training program is quite good. My husband has Parkinson's and is prone to falls so someone has to be with him all the time.

They have reliable people. They have certainly helped a lot. When they started the first week or two, they assume that's as much as I want done. Sometimes things pop up that seem to be extra to them.

They are very caring, they are on time most of the time, I can count on them, and they call me when they aren't coming. They are doing the best that they can do. I don't have to do things myself and I am not able to do everything that I used to do.

There was one instance that was very upsetting. Our caver giver thought they knew better than me when I was in the shower. We had a shouting match. They have helped keep my husband clean and functioning.

So far, I have had wonderful care from Home Care Assistance. I appreciate that they come and care for me with no questions asked. I like the way they do their work. They mean so much to me, as I can't do much for myself. They do really important things for me.

I am a current client of this provider

They're very prompt, and they're very nice. They talk to me to try to figure out what I want to do. I have been so independent and so it's kind of hard for me to accept services. My caregiver has done a really good job and has tried really hard.

By Sally D_2

I think they have grown too fast without staffing adequately. Their schedulers are overwhelmed, and the aides are not well-screened. The fact that there is someone there to help my mom with what she needs done is so helpful.

By Jean S_6

I am a current client of this provider

Home Care Assistance does what I want, not what they want, and they are completely honest. I can go out and do things with the caregiver. I am not afraid to fall when I go out because the caregiver is there to catch me.

They could provide some English speaking caregivers. Most of the people struggle with the language. I have to shout for them to understand. Most of the caregivers would just sit and watch me and that did not help me.

Home Care Assistance was relatively okay, but I can't make a comparison between other agencies. The services of Home Care Assistance provided me with help to get the grocery store.

At this point in time, I would not recommend Home Care Assistance. We have been unhappy with them because we haven't had consistency with caregivers. The agency we were with previously left us a form telling us what they had done and what needs to be taken care of. Home Care Assistance doesn't do this, and to my knowledge they have not left any record of the care they have provided. We have only had Home Care Assistance for a month and I don't know what care has been provided because they leave no record of what is done. I have been terribly disappointed with Home Care Assistance because they are not providing the same quality services we previously received.

The Home Care Assistance office is great and Home Care Assistance is great at getting caregivers out to our home to care for my mother. When the Home Care Assistance caregiver is here, I can go and work or be out in town doing the things I need to do.

I would not refer others to Home Care Assistance because the caregivers are very lazy and have limited capacity to work with my mother. Home Care Assistance has had a tremendously positive impact on my life.

Home Care Assistance has never let me down. Home Care Assistance makes my life easier for because they take care of me; the caregiver is nice and does anything that I ask her to do.

I would recommend Home Care Assistance because my caregiver is awfully sweet. Home Care Assistance makes my life easier because it allows me to do things which I cannot do myself due to my Alzheimer's and cataract's. I wouldn't be able to do things right without them.

I would recommend Home Care Assistance because I like how they have good staff for my loved one. They are well trained and professional. I live far away from my loved one, and they get the assistance from Home Care Assistance about three times a week and it makes it easy because someone is there to help with their needs.

Home Care Assistance keeps on top of things. I don't hear from them very often though. Home Care Assistance is reliable and they are there when we need them.

I would say that Home Care Assistance has worked out well with my father. He has received good services. Home Care Assistance has made life better by having a person that comes out as early as 6 a.m. so that my loved one is not just sitting there waiting in the morning.

Home Care Assistance has well-trained caregivers who are very reliable. If not for Home Care Assistance, my loved one would be in a nursing home.

I would tell someone that everyone who came from Home Care Assistance was really responsive to what we needed and they tailored the care to us. My dad was pretty functional when we started the care with Home Care Assistance so we didn't need much.

By Craig S

I am a past client of this provider

I would not recommend Home Care Assistance because the caregiver was late everyday and very strange. The services could have helped us more if the caregiver was interactive, proactive and engaged. She just sat in a chair.

First and foremost, my caregiver is excellent! Home Care Assistance totally seems to have its act together! They provide all the best services while being responsive and accommodating. They help you to make a game plan for your needs in general. I really couldn't get through the day without the kind of support that Home Care Assistance is giving me! Whether it's medical related or transportation needs, they are there.

By Brian A_2

I am a past client of this provider

I would refer Home Care Assistance to others because they've been responsive, and the caregiver was very attentive and nice. They got along well with the patient. The services with Home Care Assistance could have provided longer hours, but the cost would have been too high.

Home Care Assistance is excellent because of the feedback they give me, their professionalism, and their caring attitude. Home Care Assistance has made life easier by providing last minute coverage for my mom, which was amazing.

By John B_8

In the beginning, some caregivers were neglecting and inexperienced. The current caregiver that we have is excellent. In the past, caregivers didn't show up to work or call the office. On the weekends, it was very hard to find a replacement. Now to avoid problems, we use Home Care Assistance and another company for the care of my loved one. My loved one is very limited in her mobility so the caregivers dress her and feed her. They are good at getting her to eat. If there's a medical problem, they know to call the right people.

Home Care Assistance is pretty reliable. Home Care Assistance could have variability in their hours. That may be helpful if I need more help one day than the other.

Home Care Assistance is very good about supplying caregivers, and if one can't make it they are very good about finding a substitute. They monitor their caregivers to make sure they are doing what they are supposed to do. The caregivers come take care of my mom so I can go to work and not worry about my mom too much. I know that she is getting fed and getting her medicine.

Home Care Assistance could have more consistency in the caregivers showing up. They are also showing up very late sometimes. The caregivers help the client with just about everything in the home. They assist with daily living activities because she is limited in her mobility.

I would recommend Home Care Assistance to others because the caretakers have been great. We have round-the-clock care, but we are having problems with the agency providing the right paperwork to the insurance agency so that I can be reimbursed. I love the caretakers, but it's the billing that is not working right now, and it may even be the insurance's fault. Home Care Assistance takes away some of the pressure of taking care of my parents.

I have had a very good experience working with this company. I feel very comfortable in discussing any problems ( which have been very few) I might have and they address them very quickly. I have been very pleased with the aides they have sent. They are professional and compassionate with my clients. The nursing supervisory staff has gone above and beyond their duties to help me in an emergency. I would highly recommend this group for their services.

We had a very good experience with using Home Care Assistance. They are very professional and prompt in responding to our questions/ requests. The two caretakers were also very easy to deal with the made our recovery easy. One of the best things about using this service is that you don't have to go through the hassle of screening caretakers as this company does it in advance.

Not once did HCA not provide a caregiver to my sister even if the original caregiver called in sick. The staff were consistently professional and responsive to my sister's needs.

We were thrilled that Home Care Assistance was able to help get Patricia into our parents home to work with mom and our lives. From the start Crystal arranged for us to interview three caregivers who were great with memory care patients - and on short notice! My brothers and I were so grateful for the follow-up, ideas,on how to handle mom, home visits and of course our caregiver Patricia. We could not have done without them so when we realized dad needed help we called them again! We have also recommend them to friends and family who need dedicated caregivers. Thank you Home Care Assistance!!!!
