Home Care Reviews for Home Helpers of Mequon

I am a current client of this provider

She had one caregiver for four days and it was scheduled. On the third day they told them they would change to someone else and during the next week they had different caregivers each day. No one has been back since because of staffing and COVID and now she has no one. They need consistency with care, they need more mature caregivers, and better follow up.

We have had in home care for my Mom since August 2020. Consistent, caring and responsive are what comes to mind. Dementia is a horrible disease and the compassionate treatment of my mom has been so helpful to all of our family.

My mother only has one caregiver and she has worked out very well. If our family member is happy, we are happy. It is a company that is local. If there is an issue, it would be nice to have an office nearby.

The caregiver was friendly and was helping her take showers to make sure she is safe. I liked the caring and dedicated caregivers.

When I was living on my own, the caregivers at Home Helpers helped me with my housework and things I can't reach. In my facility, they helped with my packing when I moved over. I have had trouble in the past with Home Helpers where they don't send a caregiver when they are supposed to be there, or they send a caregiver when they aren't supposed to. It's a communication issue.

They could have been here 24 hours instead of 12. The caregivers that we have are good and they are kind.

She is able to stay within the home and get 24 hour care. I like that they have a registered nurse as part of the team.

They assist her with helping her clean and vacuum where she can't vacuum anymore. They are able to adapt to anything for the person they are caring for. There are differences in needs for the person.

They come once a week, mainly for his bath. The lady that comes does a wonderful job with that. I haven't gotten out a lot so they give me time to do that. They've been very responsive. I've had periods of time when I haven't needed them and they've been on the spot with coming back.

They've been compassionate with my mom and dad during this time. They help her stay in the home, which is her main wish. They have a great team. We transitioned my mom into hospice care and they've been helpful with going through the entire process.

They could have been a little bit more attentive and done some more things around the house. Sometimes she didn't always do everything I thought she should have. She would do dishes or laundry and she would put things away in places I wouldn't put them, which caused me to hunt around for an object. She had a couple of physical issues. They helped me with my daily tasks. They were always prompt, rarely late, and never missed a day.

I have a list for her each day. She does everything I ask her to do, as well as some things I don't ask her to do. They're very thorough and hands-on.

I like them being there and being supportive. They have been very consistent. We both feel secure. I like that the office people are always available and I like how there is a nurse. Our aide is fantastic, and there is a good consistency.

I wasn't over there, but I have a disability myself so I didn't get over to the house as much. In the two and a half weeks I didn't make it over about once or twice. From what I was told she was well taken care of. She spoke highly of two or three of the people. We had two people from the company plus the initial head person who came in. We were really pleased with two or three of the people. We had some issues with fill-ins, but most of it was good.

They did not have a positive impact. They need to do better about sending the right person to the right place. I think they could have been better about communicating with me.

I thought I was going to have a nervous breakdown when I opened the door and it was someone different. I would recommend them if they kept their word and sent fewer people.

It gave me the comfort since I couldn't stay there 24/7. I've done it twice. They worked with me because my mom was stubborn and didn't think she needed the service, so they worked around her.

When I'm no longer able to do things and I don't have someone else to help, they are there. I don't need a nursing home because of them. They call up once in a while to see if I'm satisfied. They are always available.

It allows me to head back to Arizona with fairly peace of mind that things are being taken care of back there. They are here two hours per a day, and we need someone here for four. The person just sits around and doesn't know what to do, and that seems to be a little unnecessary. It's not the caregiver's fault because the owner changed.

They do not wait to be told what to do, and they come up with things to do for me. I like that their personal interest.

It helped me that I didn't have to go over there everyday. To be honest, when I interviewed, I told them our needs with cooking. She was malnourished, and they needed to make sure she ate. Everyone just listened to her when she said she wasn't hungry. They wouldn't feed her. Her nutritional status did not improve. They did whatever she asked, but they didn't do what the family wanted.

Some of the caregivers that we had were not appropriate for my loved one's needs. They would just let him sit in front of the TV instead of engaging with him. I should have been more vocal when the caregiver was not working for us.

I would have been all alone and have to take care of him. He was very sick, and I had to go tour and do chores. The girls were very nice. We had no problems. They know my son, and they were very nice. I liked them, and the girls were good.

Our current caregiver is outstanding. We've had a few different caregivers. They could make sure the training is consistent through the caregivers. It comes down to the personalities of the caregivers. It's really individual. Not all caregivers are the same, and some are better than others. It's a matter of finding the fit caregiver wise.

I think they should give their caregivers hygiene classes because one of the caregivers that I rode with in their car was very dirty, I did not feel very comfortable. I wouldn't recommend them but the last two people they sent were very dirty.

They could keep people more steady so that we could have the same people. They seem to change people very often. We have been with them for two years, and we have had five different caregivers.

They have been quite helpful because they are here to provide extra help to my daughter, who provides care for my husband and me. When my daughter has to get the children ready for school, they are here to help us. I like that they do whatever I ask them to do.

Most of the caregivers are fantastic. They allow my mom to stay in Milwaukee, and it allows me to keep my life in Minnesota. Otherwise, I'd have to be there with her, and it's hard to keep a job from that distance. There has been one issue. There were a large number of caregivers sent to my loved one and that freaked her out. She has memory issues, and she was constantly waking up to a new stranger.

They are helping me a lot. Since I don't drive they take me places I have to go. When we get home from shopping they get everything put away for me in a very orderly way. They are polite, efficient, very friendly, they do everything you want them to do and are there when you need them.

They regularly check up on my mom. Without that, we would have to make drastic changes. They have also been remarkable and made many recommendations to increase her care. My mom has been nasty, and these poor people at Home Helpers are trying to help.

They could reduce the amount of turnover for staffing. The facility he is at requires that he receives extra care. The care allowed us to avoid a disruptive incident. My dad has dementia, so he needs more steady care than a lot of turnover.

One of their caregivers goes above and beyond. They are reliable. They help take care of my loved one. They have enabled my loved one to stay in assisted living as opposed to being in full nursing care.

Home Helpers is a good agency because they listen to what I say and correct things that don't work immediately. The services are helpful because I am not physically able to do everything my husband's care requires, so the caregivers do it.

Sometimes the caregivers are good, and sometimes they are not. You have to keep in communication with the office to find a replacement and let them know what is going on. The service does not have much of an impact because Home Helpers comes when my mom is sleeping. They may give her a drink or snack.

My folks moved to an Assisted Living Community and been there since October 2011. My folks have two different situations going on. My mom has dementia and is physically fine. My dad is 35 mentally but physically he can not walk 10 steps without losing his breath. Around summer, we knew we needed a greater level of support in their Assisted Living Community. Home Helpers sends in a caregiver 7 days a week, 12 hours a day to help my parents maintain their apartment, companionship, personal support such as dressing and showering and create different levels of activities for them. They all do such a great job in helping them get through their day and we have become very dependent on them very quickly. They provide just the right caregivers and that isn't always easy scheduling as we do need them 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. We did interview several agencies in the area but what made our decision is having Tim and Laura. Tim is extremely dedicated and provides just the right customer experience and Laura is a register nurse and Laura provides another perspective to my parents care. We are treated like we are part of their family and they are there for us every step of the way. The level of service exceeds our expectations!

I have Tammy and I'm well satisfied with her. She does very good work. She goes right ahead and I don't have to tell her what to do. She knows what are things to be done. My cardiologist suggested I might like Home Helpers and thought I'd give them a try. At the time, they were just starting their business. Tammy comes to my place twice a week and helps me around with cleaning and laundry. She's been with me ever since I came out from rehab last April of this year. She represents the company very well.

They were recommended to us by the minister of our church. I have been incredibly impressed with Home Helpers company. They have some wonderful caregivers. They really improved the quality of my mom and dad's lives. My mom is 90 and my dad is 95. Dad is in mid-stage Alzheimer's disease. My mother has many physical problems. She fell and broke her legs a year ago or so with a spinal fracture. Since then she had a lot of mobility problems. The caregivers take care of my mom and dad from 9 in the evening until 9 in the morning. They provide them exercise in the morning.

I know the Bireley family. I have known them for years, so I was very comfortable using their service. I just know how they work and raise a family and did other businesses. I felt more comfortable using somebody I know than another firm which may have been in business longer than Home Helpers. My parents had no complaints at all with them. It worked out real fine between the caregivers and my parents. I have them in the morning 5 days a week. They make sure my parents are up and have breakfast. I've set out their morning pills and the caregivers make sure they are taken. They take care of their lunch. I am very happy and very comfortable having them. I don't worry about being away from home. We have been with them since they started the company in April.
