She was able to tell me what was going on when I wasn't there. They were really good. I really liked the caregivers they sent over.

They could display the scheduling and have it be more flexible to my time table. I like that they are very flexible and accommodate me.

They provided nursing assistance right away to help care for her. The most helpful part was their presence. It's helpful to have someone there to steer her in the right direction and keep under control and in the house without wandering. They were quick to respond to my needs and requests for assistance.

It's improved considerably. I'm in good health for my age, but I did fall last year, and Rose is a great help. They are reliable, and if I ever need some extra assistance, I know it's available. Right now, I don't need very much, but the person that helped me with my wife did an outstanding job. My wife passed away about 18 months ago. Other than Rose, my interactions with the other people have been good.

They were professional kind, and they knew what they were doing. They knew routes and traffic patterns to the hospital, which is helpful in Virginia. I liked the professionalism and the kindness. My wife had get chemotherapy at the hospital, and I had an injury.

When I was coming home and knew I needed some help, I didn't really know what I needed. The minimum was 4 hours, and I don't really have 4 hours that work. I am down to a few days a week, and soon will be down to even less. Some of the aides don't follow instructions very well. There is a couple of them I have had, and one of them I asked not to send anymore.

They had a good impact on my life, but having to call and make arrangements was very complicated. They always come through with somebody, and their CNAs are fantastic.

I did not expect to have someone doing things in my home, but she has become such a good companion more than just helping. I don't know much about the company, but the lady we have is a pretty good caregiver. She has come to be a good companion and helps me a lot.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for taking the time to rate us 5 stars! We are honored to be able to help you and we look forward to continually providing superior customer service.

Without the caregivers, she would be in a nursing home. I deal with two really special people in the office.

The young lady took care of my wife when I wasn't there. In my case, the person that was providing care for my wife lived so far away, and it was difficult for her to get her, so if she lived closer it would have been excellent.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for the kind review. We are so honored to be able to assist your family. Please know that we have the ability to draw on a large network of caregivers, so working with our staffing department can help alleviate some of the concerns you have.

I was able to sleep for the first time in a week. The best thing about it was how the manger really worked with me to get here as quickly as possible, and he was extremely caring and sensitive to my issues.

One of the tasks was light cooking, and it would have been nice if that food was a little healthier, not just frozen or fast food. I liked the care. Everyone was very professional to work with.

I had no help before so having the help when he is totally dependent on it is important. We have had trouble finding staff that could take his case on. The administration cared about what happened and they are diligently trying to keep up with it.

I am a past client of this provider

The caregiver was very proactive. They would come in the morning and have breakfast started when my loved one woke up. They were very patient with my loved one. They would sit with my loved one for hours playing games. They never made it feel like it was too much to ask. They never minded if we asked them to do things. We know that they cared. They need to have truth and accountability.

Provider Response

Thank you for the 5 star review and the kind words! We are thrilled to hear that our services are meeting your needs.

They can find better caregivers and have better training. They can improve in finding good caregivers.

Provider Response

We are so sorry to read your very important review. We will be sure to alert the Ready Hands office to know that your experience with a caregiver was not positive which is typically an anomaly with our Alexandria location. Please know that we also have the ability to send you a different caregiver with our large network of caregivers available to us. We are happy to allow you to interview a caregiver before they start work to be sure they are a great fit inside your home. Thank you for taking the time to leave your valuable feedback.

They could offer more companionship. We like the personal contact we get from the representatives.

Obviously, it had a tremendous impact. If she hadn't had an aide, she would be a disaster because she can't get out of bed by herself. Without an aide, she can't function. I liked the two aides from Ready Hands and I think they were responsible. The main reason she switched was purely financial. The second aide wasn't as personable. They could be more personable.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to leave us the very valuable review. We will certainly take this feedback directly to our staffing team. We hope that we can someday earn that 5th star.

I go early to a Bible study on Tuesday mornings and she always comes thirty minutes earlier to accommodate our need. She is careful with our drugs so that they are always ready for us to take in the morning. She checks everything to be sure that we do things correctly. She does the laundry and drives us places. Our caregiver is always on time and has a whole process she follows every day, that we are looking for.

Having people that show up to take good care of my mom makes my life easier. I think they need to communicate better with their employees. It would also be nice if they could call back when I call.

The caregiver has been dependable. She takes care of her needs and she keeps me informed, even though I'm not local. She has a good way of keeping me involved. I would tell a friend about the consistent, warm, and friendly staff.

She was able to do what she needed to and it was good. There was not that big of an impact due to the minimal time. We really liked the people, mostly our day caregiver.

They have made my life easier because the services I get from them. The extra help is a lot of help but I could survive without them. I have had a very good experience with them because I have had a really good relationship with the caregiver.

It gave all of us a needed rest. It gave him someone that was there for him. It was good that we had someone there just him. We're just so grateful. They were very easy to contact. Michael Young was able to help us. We always had coverage for what we needed. They were there when we needed them.

Ready Hands has provided 24-hours, live-in care for my elderly Mother for 4 years. Their service has been outstanding from the initial interview to the continuing home monitoring visits. The caregiver provided is licensed, experienced and has become a valued member of our family. Ready Hands administrative staff are professional, accommodating and handle all insurance billing. The Directors include a doctor and nurse.

Ready Hands was referred to us. I have had an excellent experience with them. They have always sent really well prepared aides to take care of my father. At this point, my father is in total bed care. Before that he had to be helped to walk to the bathroom and back to his chair. They help him with shower. They've always been kind and gentle. We haven't had any problems with them. I can't say anything but wonderful things about everyone they sent. We had quite a few caregivers for the past two and a half years that we've been with them.

I am a current client of this provider

We had a different provider before and the aides were not suitable at all. They were not professional. They were rude and untrained. So we called Ready Hands and they've been wonderful. The quality of the nurses have been much better. We have 24-hour care. We needed extra aid so they provided 2 more, a night time aid and another day time aide. So at that point we had 3 caregivers. The aides so far that we have from them are all long term. We have 2 caregivers now who are with with us for more than a year. We had one prior to them who stayed for a year. We have yet another one who's been with us for more than 6 months. They're all professional and provided much better care. We just never had a problem. This is the 3rd year that we are with Ready Hands. I'm absolutely satisfied with their service.
