I was in need of their help. One thing they did was they came by during the night to care for him, so I could get some sleep. I like how they were always willing to try to help me to find solutions to the client's problems.

She wants to stay in her home but can't do everything so they allow her to stay in her home and have some independence. I like that it's easy to communicate with them. If I have any concerns, they are on top of it.

They are very good, and I like the people coming here, but I think we just need to get to a point where we are familiar with the new caregiver too. We have only had them for a few weeks. One person is very good, and he does the best he can. They make an effort to find the right people. That was the biggest problem when we first started. We finally found two people we like.

Provider Response

Thank you, Prakash! We pride ourselves on finding the best matches, and work very hard until we have the best support in place for each of our clients particular situation.

They're very good with communication. They were very quick to reach out when I had a question. That was great. I like the quality of the assistance they provide.

Provider Response

We had the services a few hours a day and it worked out fine for what my mom needed at the time. It helped my mom transition to an assisted living. I feel comfortable with the services.

They could be a little more persuasive in getting my mom out and doing things. They are very responsive and they are very caring.

We were lucky. She was an RN and she was able to assess my husband's condition. She reassured me. They were very good at organizing things.

It's had a positive impact, I think they've been very responsive. He can be impossible to work with, it's the highest compliment to someone if he hasn't fired them. I think they've been very flexible. They seem to have nice people who work for them.

They are just right there to help, and they are wonderful people. They take into consideration all of your needs. They had a rough job since she was in quarantine, and they did an outstanding job.

They do perfectly well, but other providers provide the same package. There is nothing above and beyond they do compared to other agencies. I appreciate their willingness to be here early in the morning for me. They try really hard to keep me well informed about my care and who will be providing it. They try to provide people I am familiar with.

I think they could have a little bit more assertiveness in making sure she is always exceeding her physical needs and mobility. They can continue to encourage her with her fitness level. I like that they find a good match for my mom, and I do like that their caretakers are timely and responsive with the care.

Someone came out and assessed the situation, and he would always come with the new caregiver to introduce them and make sure that my mom was comfortable, which was nice. I liked that the owner of the branch was superb.

They were always there on time. If I had a question, there was always someone who could give me information. They were quick to get someone. It didn't take forever. They were efficient.
