I Am A Current Client Of This Provider
We're happy with the people that we have coming from Home Instead and they're doing their job. We are satisfied with the service we're getting. We need to fine tune it a little bit more to meet our needs and I think they have the capability to do that for us. The caregiver comes in on a 5-day basis during a 4-hour period each day for my brother. The schedule is relatively effective and if you get a last minute cancellation, they do their best to give you the coverage that you need. We haven't had any major problems with that either.
