Home Care Reviews for Lifematters

October 27, 2017

By Betty W_2

I am a current client of this provider

I would recommend Lifematters because we have had the same caregiver for 10 years, and they have been an enormous help. Lifematters makes life easier because their caregiver has been here for 10 years, and has helped with home health care to wound care for my grandma. I wouldn't be able to care for her without them.

Lifematters had great people who had been attending to my loved one's needs, were very personable and attentive, and formed a good relationship with her in a very short amount of time. Lifematters was there to make sure that my mother didn't fall, until she was able to recover.

Lifematters is trained, efficient, and able to do their job well. It was confining to not be able to do anything, but having Lifematters around took some of my independence away.

The caregivers that Lifematters sends are always caring and they get along with my mom. I actually have recommended them to a number of people and would continue to do so. I really am impressed with this agency and I think it's the best in this area. Lifematters is wonderful! They can take my mom out shopping which gives her a feeling of independence. It's nice that she has another person who is checking up on her too.

I have been very pleased with Lifematters service. We have had very good coverage and for the most part, the team we have right now is wonderful and devoted to my mother and very reliable. If there is a scheduling conflict Lifematters steps in and makes sure that we are covered. It is a huge relief for me to know to know that my mother is taken care of. I have this team and all of their phone numbers and I get really good feedback and we communicate together about my mother's care. She does not live with me anymore.

Lifematters would be a good company to hire because they are very reliable, they communicate well, and they send quality caregivers. The services make the client's life easier because she couldn't have been released from the hospital if she didn't have the caregivers. The caregivers have worked with her and she has gotten better. They are able to execute doctor's orders which change regularly.

Lifematters sends out very good, and knowledgeable caregivers. They send other people out as needed such as a nurse if there is an issue. The nurse is very professional and helps the caregivers as needed. I have never had a problem getting a hold of Lifematters and never had a problem getting a substitute caregiver. I would not have a life at all if it were not for Lifematters. As the years have gone by with my mother-in-law, she has required more and more assistance.

If you want to risk your medical safety with CNAs who do not follow instructions including giving medications inaccurately and inappropriately be sure to use Life Matters. They arrogantly make their own rules. Administrative staff act as if their life matters more than the clients by covering for what they consider top notch caregivers. Beware, be careful, be diligent with following up on your loved ones' care.
Provider Response
