I like that they have enough caregivers to always find someone to help me. They have more people available. I can get to my doctor's appointments, but it costs an awful lot.

Care Advantage's quality of service is not that good. I am disappointed on some things. I was once charged for a half an hour of service that I did not have. It's great because I get to get out. I can afford it, too.

The aides are very nice, helpful, and do what I ask them to do. They are congenial. They help with getting dressed. They also help to drive me to places and fix my meals. They will sit down and converse with me.

They are reliable and I know I will get a good driver to take me to where I need to go. When I need them, they are good about getting somebody for me and I like that they stay with me so they don't have to pick me up again.

They are very well aware of what they are doing, and they take good care of me. They do physical therapy and wound care.

The caregiver has really bonded with me. The caregiver knows my routine and does what needs to be done without being asked. She does the laundry without me asking. The caregivers know what my routine is, and they don't just sit down in a chair and give me advice. I don't mind taking suggestions.

They have always been there and have taken care of Marjorie. The aide takes her to the bathroom if she needs it, takes her to the doctor's office, and dresses her when she needs it.

I feel the nurses are top notch and very thorough. They help me work on my handwriting.

Unfortunately, after two months of trying to form a relationshihp with Care Advantage, I had to terminate my contract. This multi-branch agency in my community turned out to be an inconsistent provider of home health services. Care Advantage came highly recommended by our local hospital, so I felt confident they would be reliable and responsible. I needed someone to stay with my mother three mornings a week while I was at work, so the agency sent several individuals for me to interview. I chose a lady named ""Alice,"" who seemed to be bright, related well to my mother, and was willing to do more than just ""babysit"" during the 12-15 hours I needed her. ""Alice"" showed up on time the first day and was great. However, things went downhill from there, when the agency told me ""Alice"" was no longer available, since they had fired her. Care Advantage then proceeded to send me a selection of aides that did not measure up to the original person, ""Alice."" The next aide came 15 minutes late and smelled like cigarette smoke. Then they sent a woman who could not communicate in English. The CNA after that fell asleep while she was supposed to be looking out for my mother ... I found her snoring when I came home from work. After that, I had a young lady who felt that using my perfume, inviting her boyfriend over and talking on her cell phone was all appropriate. This agency did not do a good job screening their applicants, nor did they provide good training to the CNAs. After so many problem aides, I had no choice but to sever my relationship and look for another care provider. When you are paying almost $20 an hour for experienced healthcare support, you expect them to arrive on time, act professional and maintain good hygiene(physically and emotionally). I paid extra to have the aides I hired be able to monitor and dispense medications, but only one of the aides actually followed the care plan. The rest of the workers were content to sit and watch TV and raid my refrigerator. Care Advantage seems to have the ability to provide the basic care that individuals need who are not quite ready for a nursing home. If you are going to engage Care Advantage in a contract, please make sure that they release you go the right place.
