I can't use my legs, so I need extra help. When they come to the house, it looks like a dump. They don't clean. They could clean when they come.

Provider Response

Thank you for the kind words. It is our pleasure to help you.

They need to make sure they are billing properly and paying the caregivers properly. I have called them to make changes in scheduling and the billing is poor. They are underpaying the caregivers. When I told them about changing the hours, they were still charging us for the full hours.

Provider Response

We are so sorry that you did not have a stellar experience with our teams. We will be sure to communicate this dissatisfaction with our accounting office and leadership. Please feel free to email us if you need to speak with a member of leadership about your specific case. We hope to have your matter resolved professionally and accurately.

If the caregivers could just come in and do things well, everything would be good. They are okay. They notify me of things that are happening, and sometimes they don't.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review and we here you. If you have any concerns please call me and let me know how I can make us a 5 star review for you. Sincerely, Ginny Schwank

They should have listened to me as a patient and straightened things out with the agency. The nurse is friendly, but they can't adhere to my schedule. With that, I can't recommend them to anyone.

Provider Response

We are so sorry to read your review and very sorry this was your experience. As a company, we certainly understand that you depend on our caregivers for a specific service and you need consistency with schedules and staff. We will take this very valuable feedback to our teams to make sure they are aware and this breakdown in communication will be fixed. If you are not satisfied, please email us so we may engage our leadership to make this a better, more positive experience for you.

There are a lot of things that he can't do for himself so it is helpful to have someone there who can help him because we are not there to help during the daytime. We usually get help when we need it.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for the kind review. We are so honored to be able to assist your family. We appreciate your time to leave us positive feedback!

They make sure I have someone here with me. They try to send me caregivers compatible to me.

Provider Response

They help him. I'm still doing his care, but a caregiver comes. It helps me a lot because I don't have to bathe him every day. They could give us more time.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for leaving us a review. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know how we care for your loved one. We are happy to give you additional time or caregivers anytime you request as we have a large network of caregivers to call upon.

They have made things easier for me because they sit and talk to me. They try to help me. I like that the girls come here, and sometimes we talk.

Provider Response

We are so happy that you had a great experience. Thank you for leaving us this positive feedback.

They don't need any help doing anything because they know how to handle the patient well. They are prompt and on time.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your kind words! We appreciate that you took the time to give us a 5 star review!

They do what they do and it's alright. I like how caring they are of me and my home.

When they come, it's excellent. They have helped my uncle the most with the routine. Someone is there, someone helps him with his medicine, and someone makes sure he is stable. For some reason, we have been through three or four different people. I was hoping we could have the same people so we could get a routine. Nobody has come for a couple of days.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to provide this positive feedback. It is our pleasure to serve you, and we appreciate that opportunity.

The services have been good. They help me do things that I can't do. Some of the workers are better than others.

They could be providing transportation for me to go get groceries and things. They only provide service in the home. There are other places I have to go. When the nurses come to my home they don't tell me the date or time that they're coming. I like to set aside that time for them, but they don't give me a heads-up.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for taking the time to offer feedback. We unfortunately have requirements from certain payer sources that prohibit announced visits. We must do unannounced supervisory visits from time to time, but they will always be within your scheduled service dates and hours. The visits will typically fall around the same time every 90 days. From time to time you will have one scheduled, but they are primarily going to be unannounced. In addition, those same payer sources prevent us from providing transportation services. If there are services that you would like to add to your plan of care that may not be covered by the insurance, we can discuss other alternatives that may offer a solution. Please reach out to your servicing office to further discuss, and thanks again for reaching out.

They help me with my son and it gives me a break to do the things I need to do. Everything seems to be going alright. The aide does well.

Sometimes we don't have a nurse if the regular nurse isn't here. We need to know ahead of time that we don't have a nurse. When the regular nurse isn't here, they need to have someone fill in because that's not always happening.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to offer this feedback. Your satisfaction is our top priority, and we would like to immediately resolve your concerns. Please reach out to me directly so that we can ensure that going forward you can be completely satisfied with the services that you receive from Care Advantage. I can be reached at 804-323-9464.

The caregiver did his am care and was there to relive me. They came in so that I could get some things done.

Provider Response

They explained the new procedures to me and they went out of their way to show me how to do what was needed. They were prompt and they came on time.

They could have better accountability. Their responsibility and professionalism were poor. They could have looked at all the problems and fix something.

Provider Response

I am so sorry to hear that this was your experience. This is disappointing. We would very much like a chance to show you the true value of Care Advantage's services. If you do decide to give us another try in the future, please contact me directly at 804-323-9464 so that I may personally handle the arrangements.

Care Advantage sometimes doesn't have enough caregivers for me because if a caregiver calls off sick, they need to do better at getting a replacement for me. They have been a disaster because they can't always provide a caregiver for me.

Provider Response

I am sorry that you are experiencing this problem. I would love the opportunity to speak with you about your concerns and see if we can work together on a solution for that. Please give me a call when you can to discuss further. I can be reached at 804-520-5454 Thank you.

They have met all of my needs so far. I couldn't do all of the things I need done without them.

Provider Response

Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad that we have been able to meet your needs and make you happy. That is what we are here for.
