I am a past client of this provider

Our mother was a client for many years with this organization. Her caregiver was like a member of our family and provided outstanding care. She gave us peace of mind when we were not available and provided mom with the most wonderful care, even in the final days of her life. While mom is no longer with us, we still keep her memory alive by staying in touch with the caregiver.

This would have been a lower rating except for the care provider they gave us one night. She was so good that we hired her as a live-in for two months. She cheered my husband up all the time, was meticulous about medications, dedicated to seeing his needs were met, never complained, and was totally trustworthy and competent. I think she extended my husband's life span! Those who came before her were very uneven in quality. Some fell asleep, some were on the phone all the time, some didn't know what to do for him. In general I would not recommend this service. They were good at making sure there were people when needed. Often people were late or did not show up and they would get someone there fairly quickly.
