They see what needs to be done and do it. They are very friendly and eager to do chores around the house. He likes the workers a lot.

The lady I have now is great. I'm confined to a chair, so they really help me get around. I can't clean my house, so they do it, and they do a good job. They are very helpful, and they're very busy too. They do everything that needs to be done.

My family worked with Home Helpers for a period of one year, from April 2017-18, when we retained their services to care for our father, who was in the latter stages of Parkinson's Disease. I cannot say enough about them; from the first day until the last (our father passed away in April), the owner, her management team and all caregivers were terrific to work with. We utilized a large group of caregivers, who provided everything from meal prep and feeding to hygiene needs, transfers to/from bed to wheelchair, administration of meds, walking and getting fresh air, and companionship. The staff was uniformly courteous and respectful, caring and attentive, always prompt, honest and detail-oriented. They all spoke English (which was a concern for my father and his wife, both hard of hearing), and they were engaged and talkative with my father but gave the family privacy and space when it was needed. The agency bent over backwards to accommodate our needs and sometimes-last-minute schedule changes, and they worked very well with the hospice team, which was reassuring to us. They provided the best-fit caregivers for our father. Every one of them was kind and considerate. We were never worried when we knew a Home Helpers caregiver was with our father; they were true professionals and a God-send to our family. Home Helpers began with care about 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, and ultimately were there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The caregivers and the Home Helpers management team became like extended family. Now that our father has passed, we miss them all! Home Helpers was a true partner with my family in providing the best possible care for our father during his final journey. They made sure he was comfortable, safe and well-cared-for. We will never be able to thank them enough, and I recommend them without hesitation.

This agency could not have been more helpful, compassionate and attentive to my father who was a patient/client over the last year. Before his passing, he was always happy to see the care-givers arrive at his home. They were engaging and attentive to his needs and wishes. They were punctual and often stayed longer than required because they felt it would make my dads life better. They improved the final stages of his life by their devotion and friendships. My family could not be any happier or more thankful for the assistance and dedication that this agency provided. It made our lives alot easier and my dads more tolerable and enjoyable. Thank you to all the Home Helpers personnel who helped and cared for my father. You are Angels in disguise!!!

They are very responsive to our needs, and they try very hard, even if they don't succeed. They have provided some very skilled helpers in our home to take care of my loved one.

The people they hire are really good and I would say that they tend to the needs of their clients based on exactly what their clients needs. My brother has dementia, so getting someone to help me helps a lot in getting him up in the morning. I can leave in the morning that my brother will be taken care of. I don't have to worry.

It's quite unique because I really feel neighborly instead of just professional. I like to know how my neighbors are and if I can do anything to help. They anticipate what I might need and they don't question me. It's a very nice, neighborly way of asking what I need. They make my life more enjoyable now.

Home Helpers was really good. They were there to answer the phone, and they called back right away. The people were very dependable. I had them for the last few weeks my father lived, and I had them for at least two weeks. Their supervisors were very good and always on top of everything. They were there to answer questions and inform you of everything that they were going to do. I like them. They had home health aides, nurses, and people who would actually do house cleaning. They were there to do what you wanted them to do, and even when my father was passing away and they came in, if there wasn't much for them to do, they said they would actually also do light house cleaning and maybe a little shopping.

I would tell others that every single person or caregiver who comes to us has a great personality is and is hard working. The services of Home Helpers have enabled my mother to be in her home.

Home Helpers has really good people, they are able to show up and they are kind to my mother. Home Helpers helps us not to have the rest of the family not to have to be there all the time to take care of my loved one.

Home Helpers caregivers is very nice and pleasant to have around, however, some of them are better than others. We have our caregivers over the weekend, and they have been excellent. However, some of our caregivers seem to use their Iphones a lot. As soon as they have a break, they are on their phones a lot. I don't mind if they use them briefly, but that doesn't happen.

I would recommend Home Helpers because the employees are great and they set me up with a gentleman who fits in with our family very well. The caregiver is a hard worker and he is like family now. He is a pleasure to have around. Having Home Helpers has made life easier because I have a bad back, and my husband can't walk, so I can't do things for him. The caregiver picks up that slack.

Home Helpers is very thorough, and they come when asked. Home Helpers could make the caregivers more available to their clients.

I would tell someone that there's too many starches. I've gained weight since being here I was 160 pounds, but now I've gotten myself down to 140 pounds. The caregivers are fantastic.
