They are an average company. I've been through 12 different companies, and this one isn't any different. They aren't really involved.

It helps having a backup and someone around to make sure everything is okay. We like out particular caregiver. She knows when to push and when to back off.

If we had any questions or needed help, we could ask them. They had very good team work. They were easy to talk to and made the care special.

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.

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.

When my wife was alive, I needed them more. Now I don't need them as much living alone, and I am in good shape. I had Rose for a long time and when I needed help, it was around the clock. When I had one problem with a caregiver, they replaced her right away.

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 could send me the same caregiver like before. I would have recommended them more a few months back, but I don't like how it's being handled. They need to do as they did before. I could get an aide and they could stay with me for years if necessary. I would say it would be improved if they went back to the old system where a person can have an aide for as long as they please.

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.

We had two favorite nurses. They were very loving and qualified and became part of our family. We trusted them. They have excellent caregivers, and they were always willing to provide fill-ins. They were flexible for me

The aide is outstanding. I feel at ease when she is there and I am not. Some of the replacement aides that we have had aren't that good.

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.

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.
