My parents need constant attention, and I'm not able to give it. They benefit because they get that constant attention, and I benefit because I can keep my job. They correct mistakes quickly with staffing and other things.

The current caregiver is very good, but there shouldn't be such a significant drop off in the quality of service. It should be more consistent. The reason I rate them lower is because there seems to be a broad fluctuation in the quality of the caregivers they send. The one that I have now is good, but there is a significant drop off in some of the other ones I have had.

I just know that I can rely on the transition from one aide to the next. I like that they make sure that my mother is covered.

The services help my loved one by them just being here. When she is here, she helps get meals, helps them get around, and takes them to the doctor and the store. I like the agency because the caregivers come on time, and they do what they are asked to do.

I have a fractured hip so I can't do stuff around the house. It has helped us tremendously to be able to get the things done. They have done well. They picked a person that has a little bit of an accent, but I have no difficulty understanding her. She is extremely nice and does everything without a complaint and always has a smile.

If I didn't have my nurses I wouldn't even be able to put on my bra. It impacts my daily life hugely. I truly need my CNAs. I wouldn't be able to survive. Whenever they have anyone that needs recommendations I always recommend them. They have quality staff and caregivers.

They are very helpful at getting me ready in the mornings. The caregiver we have is very good at getting me up in the morning and getting me dressed, but then after that, they tend to go to sleep or talk on the phone a lot.

I don't have to worry about anything anymore. My mom was kind of a handful, and I was getting a lot of calls from the facility. Now, I get fewer calls. The caregivers I have right now is outstanding. The scheduling and support is outstanding. I had a couple caregivers that I wasn't happy with, and the scheduling people switched them out immediately. I like their responsiveness and the quality they have.

I wish I could have someone here more often, it would make my life much better if someone could come here every day. They are nice people and are very pleasant. They have compassion. This agency is pretty open minded and listens to what I have to say.

They feed her, change her, sit with her, and talk to her. Right now I have 5 people on the 24 hour care team. Not only do they do the required tasks, but they are also very nurturing and caring.

The caregiver we have right now is an excellent listener. She is very good at interacting with Eleonore. Up until we got the caregiver we have now, we had some caregivers who were less satisfactory. They didn't interact with Eleonore the way we'd have preferred them to.

I don't have to worry about things, and I know they're going to communicate with me if there are any problems. Their communication is very strong. We've been really happy with both the staff members they've provided and how responsive they are whenever we need anything.

There is only one caregiver that I trust because they really care and do the job. I don't like everyone and they don't meet my needs. I particularly like one caregiver though, since her job is to take care of me and she cares. I have had caregivers that make me uneasy, though.

His care is excellent Monday through Friday mornings. The evenings are okay and the weekends are rough. It would be easier if there was a steady caregiver for the weekends. At this point, his home care during the week is good. The weekends are tough to get a steady person. He never knows who is coming.

They make his life easier by taking care of his every need from bathing to dressing. They also help with grooming, walking, eating and every day personal care. It is a huge impact. I like that they're very good at making sure there are back up people in case the regular people cannot come. My husband gets excellent care during the week and during the weekend.

My mother doesn't interact that much, but I think it is comforting to have someone there. I think our caregiver is really good and she is the reason I have given such great ratings.

The caregiver can provide a wide variety of duties that we're appreciative of. The first few caregivers were less than satisfactory, but the current caregiver is excellent because she's extremely thorough and she sees things that have to be done.

I think she needs to be more punctual. They could be more punctual, because every time I have used them, the providers haven't been timely.

I really need her when it comes time to take a shower. I need someone. I'm getting stronger and I've cut down on some hours but I still need someone to help me, though. I'm very pleased with the caregiver I have right now. She's wonderful and does things without being told. She does things that helps out in many ways.

The most helpful things they do are prepare my meals, walk with me, and wash my clothes. I liked that one of the caregivers drove me to a meeting today.

It is somewhat frustrating because there are times where they can't find people for Saturdays or Sundays. The caregiver we have had for over a year now works 6 days a week. It is their choice, but they need some freedom. I asked for a specific gender in the first place, but have never had one. I didn't get to interview the caregivers like I wanted to. I think that their price is very high for seniors when we have to have it. I think $26 an hour is outrageous. A lot of the time the caregiver is just "babysitting." Their price is horribly high for seniors. I can understand why people are changing to private care.

They help me dress, shower, and fix my meals. They know a lot about my medications. The aide I have right now is wonderful, but the ones I had before were not. I have a terrible time with the billing. The accounting is nothing but bad news and a mess.

I'm the one that has to be taken care of and I want caregivers that are closer to my culture. They don't do a good job of matching them with me based on that. I had a caregiver that came twice a week, but I lost her to a case that was five days a week. I would like it if they would match me with a caregiver that wants to only work once or twice a week on my case so that I have the same caregiver.

The best! I can't say enough good things about this agency. We have used several different companies for the care of my parent, but Home Care Assistance is extraordinary. The personalized attention of the office staff, particularly Jamaya, is incredible. She is my hero! The caregivers are patient and professional in a job that can at times be a challenge, particularly 'L' who works during the day. Her dedication is amazing! My parent is comfortable at home and I don't worry when the caregivers are there. Thank you so much!

My employee is so easy to get along with, works almost constantly, and really does a good job keeping the house looking clean. She will occasionally take advantage of her hour to rest, but I have to tell her to go lie down. She will not let me do any work. They are always here and never complain, are never sick, and are never hurt. They just keep the house so clean.

I haven't been with Home Care Assistance for very long however I have found they have very good nurses.

Home Care Assistance assigns caregivers that are fabulous, she did a wonderful job in taking very little time to get a routine down. She's been so close to us, I had hired her to visit the patient in the nursing home, but Home Care Assistance can't reach her. Home Care Assistance provided aid in caring for the patient who wasn't letting me feed her, shower and bathe her, clothe her, and help her exercise.
