They could improve in getting her up and talk to her more when she is up. They could discuss things and be more open with her. They have continued to be on time, and we haven't had a problem with someone not being there.

My loved one is happy, so I'm happy. I know she's being provided care from someone who is very personalized to her and that's she's developed a relationship with. I like the very personal attention to the caregivers that's assigned. They come and do introductions so I know who is with my loved one.

He is doing so much better in his daily interactions. He's improved. I don't worry about him when I am at work. Its like having another wife in the home.

They are very accommodating. Consistency is important, so they try very hard to make sure that they're consistent with the scheduling. I like that it's small and personable. They are very attentive and they communicate with us well. We've been blessed with a caregiver that's very consistent with my mom.

I'm not sure I know what they are supposed to do. They need to make sure my mom walks and they are supposed to help her, but they don't. They only do what she wants, but that isn't always what she needs. The girls need to follow more directions. Over time, they are doing less and less.

They always keep in touch with me and stop in and check on how my loved one is doing. They have good follow up. I have already recommended a couple of people to them. They're very helpful, the staff is very accommodating, and I'm happy with the services they give my husband.

They are currently helping to take care of my grandmother, so it has been less stressful to know that they care for her weekly. I like how the person who recommended them to us is a close friend.

It frees me up for the hours I spend with my mom. It helps me to know that they help with the meals, laundry, and keep the house neat and tidy. They are a good company for my mom, too. I love everything about them. The owner is awesome and comes to visit. The caregivers work very well with my mother.

I can leave them with my son, and that helps me relax. They keep in touch with me and I appreciate that.

She can't drive anymore, so just having her know that someone is coming once a week to take her where she needs to go is helpful. They are really helpful and do what we are looking for my mother-in-law.

I can't do certain things myself since I have a poor rotator cuff. They take their time and explain what they do, what their goals are, and they meet those goals.

I was trying to do the care on my own. They go in and feed my aunt twice a day. They have done an amazing job helping out with that. There are many caregivers that are very helpful to my loved one. They are very polite and courteous.

They do so much for me so I can't even narrow it down. They are always on time, always dressed neatly, and if I need to be taken to an appointment or to a party, I get permission to go with them. Without them I would not be able to go anywhere. My caregiver is Cheryl Horner and she is really just a doll. I hope she never moves away. Anytime I have had any of the girls here, they have been just wonderful.

They have helped the most by just playing games with him. He is interacting much better. He didn't know who I was, but now he knows who I am. They take good care of him. He is getting much better, and he is doing things now that he wasn't able to do before.

They help clear the table, they wash the dishes, they vacuum or sweep the floor, and they make sure things are picked up and put away. I don't have to tell them everything. They go right ahead and know what I want done.

They are usually able to keep me with the same caregiver so that I'm able to have a bond with them. I like that I can get somebody 24/7 and that somebody is on call all the time. If I have an emergency in middle of the night, somebody will answer.

We couldn't function without a caregiver because I have a mother who needs 24 hour care, but it's is not possible for me and my sister to be there all the time. I always felt very comfortable with all the caregivers there. I like that they are very conscious of the caregiver they send out, they are a company with a lot integrity.

Shepherd's Staff In-home Care is kind, caring, complete, and accurate. They will do anything that you ask, and will treat you better than your mother did. My husband has Parkinson's, and it is so necessary that someone is patient enough to help him. He is at a stage where it is hard for him to walk and to be understood, and I am bed bound, so it is so meaningful to have this help.

I am impressed with Shepherd's Staff because of the attention that the caregivers give to my mom. They are always trying to engage mom in different things. The care that Shepherd's Staff offers has taken the burn and worry from us because we know that on a day-to-day basis, my mom is doing what she is supposed to be doing.

I would tell someone that my recommendation of Shepherd's Staff depends on the caregiver that they would be sent. I am so delighted to have my caregiver. My caregiver is very efficient, does her job well, and had become my good friend.

Shepard’s Staff provided quality care to my mom for several years as she went from relatively independent, to bedridden and dependent on others. Angela, the office staff, and all of the caregivers were professional, friendly, competent, and truly cared for my mom’s well-being. For my mom, cats are part of the family. My husband and I, the sole caregivers for my mom in our home, could not leave for the weekend if my mom wasn't cared for and if the cats weren't fed. Shephard’s Staff caregivers were willing to provide that extra assistance. With the support provided by Shephard’s Staff, my mom was able to stay at home until her passing. Without hesitation, I would recommend them.

We have Shepherd's Staff for my mother-in-law. The owner met me for interview at my mother-in-law’s home. She makes sure that every staff interviews with the client. She was very good. They have very personalized service. My mother-in-law is pleased with the caregiver.

We engaged the services of Shepherd's Staff for a brief time, following our father's discharge from a rehab facility after he had broken his hip. Our dad is very independent, so this was a difficult situation for him to have to adjust to (having someone do most things for him, needing supervision, etc, to maintain his safety). The staff member, William, was sensitive to this. While we did not require the services of Shepherd's Staff for very long (less than 10 occasions), our dad was well-treated, we felt that his safety was maintained as he gained back his strength, and that the agency ensured that someone trust-worthy was there to assist him. We hope that the need to use these services doesn't present again, but we would feel very comfortable selecting Shepherd's Staff again should the need arise. Thank you, Angela, for your assistance; we appreciate the quality!

When our aging Mother needed additional assistance, the family interviewed 3 different help services. We chose Shepherd’s Staff because their values most aligned with ours. That decision was over 2 years ago and we’ve been so pleased ever since. Each caregiver Mom has had has been specially selected by Shepherd’s Staff to best match her personality, values, and needs. Each one has treated Mom as a VIP with emphasis on the P. She feels valued as a person with individual interests, needs and changing moods. Whenever the family has requested special attention for her or an adjustment to the way services are delivered, the gracious, accommodating response made us feel they really do care. Every staff member relates to her professionally as well as being a friend. On more than one occasion, the staff has gone out of their way to stop in her room just to say ‘hi’ when they were in the area. They have come to special family events just to be part of the festivities. Angela and Becky, have been amazing. They’ve been such a part of her life and brought her such joy.
Provider Response

We try to hire only caregivers who share our view that every human life is of inestimable value, regardless of age or ability. Respect for human dignity is our number one company value. We are glad to know that our caregivers are showing that respect to our clients!

Shepherd’s Staff caregivers have been helping my mom for over two years – with the present caregiver helping for about a year. My mom is quite elderly, hard of hearing, and losing her eyesight. The current caregiver is exceedingly kind to my mom and we are most grateful to have her services. The caregiver takes mom shopping and helps with light housekeeping such as laundry, dishes, and cleaning. But mostly she is someone we trust to keep another eye on my mom and do some of the things we are unable to do for her because we live too far away. We have been most satisfied with Shepherd Staff.

i used Shepherds Staff when my 89 year old mother, who had Alzheimer's, came to live with us. The caregivers were so kind to my mother. I felt very comfortable leaving the house, knowing that my mom was in good hands. The scheduler tries to keep the same caregiver coming to the house so there is continuity of care. I went away on vacation with my family in the summer for five days, and the lady who was caregiver for my mom stayed at my house during that time. She cared for Mom as If she were a part of her family, taking her to the firehall for dinner one evening, to the store and bought her a pair of pants, cooked meals for her, kept her clean and even cleaned my house! I was worried that my mom would have a difficult time bein separated from us, but because of the caregiver's wonderful care, she did fine and enjoyed the company! I highly recommend Shepherd's Staff for in home care.
