Outstanding professionalism

I was in a real pinch to find the right care giver and "home manager" for my parents. Mom suffers from dementia and suddenly Dad, her main caregiver, had a stroke. Almost overnight, we needed immediate support for their daily routines so Mom and Dad could continue to live at home. What to do? Enter [name removed] and Grandma Joan. Within three weeks [name removed] presented four qualified candidates. One is now a new member of the family. [Name removed] provided kind, professional and immediate support from start to finish. In every interaction he showed genuine warmth and compassion while meeting or exceeding every expectation he set. He expertly managed the process of identifying, vetting and guiding us on interviewing candidates as well as providing all the background documentation, guidelines and introductions to support services we needed to make an offer, set up payroll services and more.

Review of Grandma Joan's

I don’t see how I could have managed without the services of Grandma Joan's. He explained the entire process to me and my 3 children. In particular, he explained what parts that he could supply and what additional areas needed to be covered. At our request, he also recommended experts in these other areas. The most important step was to find a qualified live-in caregiver. After carefully assessing our needs, he located three excellent candidates for us to interview. The one we engaged has turned out to be a real gem. Under Grandma Joan's care, my wife has been improving daily and, what is more important, she is happy. Grandma Joan's was/is always available to answer questions and advise us; his advice has always been excellent. It is always a pleasure to work with him. I have no hesitation in highly recommending him. In fact, I have just done that for a dear friend who is just now facing the same situation.

A comprehensive referral service

Grandma Joan's provided me with a very easy to use platform to find and employ a live-in caregiver for my 104-year-old dad. All the administrative details which would have been very hard for me to find out and deal with were included in the step-by-step guidance provided. On one hand the service is pricey but on the other, not easy to find a comprehensive package that would have resulted in such a trustworthy arrangement, which was the overarching criterion. California has stricter rules about payment to caregivers than other states so cost is simply higher but given that as an unavoidable feature, this was still a more viable set up than I could otherwise find. All in all, I am very glad that I was referred to David and his service which has so far had a good outcome.

Grandma Joan

Grandma Joan has been a tremendous help to our family. I had posted ads elsewhere and searched for nurses to help our mother and came up empty handed. An elder care advisor in our area recommended Grandma Joan so I gave [name removed] a call. He listened to our needs and explained how Live-in care works. We interviewed candidates he provided and selected one for a one week trial. Covid lockdowns began soon after she arrived and she agreed to just stay without returning to get her car or additional personal items. She has been caring for our Mom for 7 months and we couldn’t be happier. [name removed] listened carefully to our needs and preferences and provided candidates who were trustworthy and experienced. Moms caregiver continues to be a great fit for our family. I highly recommend Grandma Joan to any family seeking live-in care.

They Make It Easy

Our family has had two experiences with [name removed] and Grandma Joan's. We highly recommend them for finding the right live-in caregiver. As for many families who realize that they need a live-in caregiver, we have no experience in this area. From the start, [name removed] walked us through the details, and has always been pleasantly available for questions. He's incredibly easy to talk with, and does what he promises to do. He helps us complete the task, including payroll suggestions and Worker's Comp suggestions. The complete deal. We've been able to interview excellent candidates, choosing one each time, and have been no less than delighted with our choices. We've been able to provide care at home, which makes all the difference. Our whole live-in caregiver situation was made much easier than we anticipated, largely due to [name removed] and Grandma Joan's.

Grandma Joan's service was exactly what we needed.; I started my search for a service for my husband before he went to the hospital for an extended stay. We were hoping to have him back at home and I found [name removed]. He was helping me plan for that hope. My husband then needed 24 hour nursing care and a local facility met that need. Two months later, I had a fall and spent time in the hospital and rehab. I then needed the help that [name removed] and I had started to develop. He got me over the humps, found a companion that I needed and solved problems that I met. My companion allows me to stay at home, letting me do what I can and want to do, providing assistance with all my other needs. In our case, she has helped me with the daily medical needs, driving me to appointments, the grocery store, even the farmer's market. When needed, she does the “go-for” jobs herself. I would be in a very different situation if not for Grandma Joan. Everyone's needs are different and everyone's solutions need someone like [name removed].

Never alone with Grandma Joan's

We are very pleased with Grandma Joan's services. Our Brother suffered a stroke in 2012 that left him paralyzed (left side), and unable to care for himself. Grandma Joan's was a conduit for finding the right match for our in home caregiving needs. The vetting and interview process made us feel comfortable with the candidates we met and selected. Grandma Joan's was always a phone call away with any guidance we needed over the eight years that our Brother required 24/7 live in care. These caregivers were a Godsend to our Family, and true friends to our Brother. Beyond that, Grandma Joan's saved us hundreds of thousands of dollars compared with other agencies available. Our Brother lived and passed away in his Home with dignity thanks to the compassionate people we met through Grandma Joan's.

Invaluable service when most needed!

[Name removed] and his organization, Grandma Joan, were a lifesaver for me and my husband. My mother, diagnosed with Parkinson’s and dementia, was living with us in her last years. As her health deteriorated with more frequent falls, we realized that she needed 24/7 care. We wanted very much to keep her at home. Grandma Joan became an invaluable resource in locating a wonderful live-in caregiver. It was such a huge transition for all of us but Grandma Joan provided excellent support throughout the process. [Name removed] was always incredibly responsive and knowledgeable! I truly believe he cares deeply about the service he provides to families like mine. He was professional and competent, and at a time that we were under great duress, I found his services invaluable. I would recommend him and his organization without reservation!

Accolades for Grandma Joan

[Name removed] North Carolina My wife and I lived alone until the progress of her dementia increased, and a series of accidents resulted in her being in various facilities. However, I wanted her home. Inasmuch as I could not provide her needed care, On the recommendation of a friend, I reached out to Grandma Joan to help find a 24-hour caregiver. Within days, Grandma Joan provided me with a written profile of a recommended caregiver who I subsequently hired. The caregiver moved in with us, and became part of the family. My relief at having my wife home with me during her last years, cannot be measured. The written profile, and the recommendation provided by Grandma Joan were quite accurate and can be trusted. I highly recommend the use of their service.

Our personal experience with Grandma Joan's

When my husband came down with a debilitating illness (giant cell arteritis) he had every bad reaction possible to the medication. It resulted in an athletic man becoming a total invalid. The nursing home was not a good option for him so I brought him home so he could really recover. I contacted Grandma Joan's who sent an incredible man to care for my husband. In three months my husband was able to walk, get into the car so we could go places. He still needed help but with [name removed]'s care he was able to recover. What I especially appreciate is that when Grandma Joan's sends someone, that person has been thoroughly vetted and comes with a "guarantee." If the client and caregiver are incompatible for any reason, [name removed] will find another person to come in. I did not need the guarantee because [name removed] had already found the right person.

Grandma Joan's was the best

I called a place for Mom in Ocala and spoke to [name removed] about either a live in caretaker or assisted living places. One of the recommendations was Grandma Joan and [name removed] called me. He was so easy to talk with and always was available. After filling out the questionnaire [name removed] went to work and found two excellent candidates for us to interview. We could not go wrong with either but my Mom just fell for [name removed]. She was available and started the next week. We provided her a room and told her it included board but she would pay for food she knew was not for Mom and I told her not to do that and let us pay. She never took advantage of her living arrangement. She cared so much for my Mom and took extraordinary care of her. She was so hurt when my Mom passed she feels like family. I hope to keep [name removed] in our lives in the future.

Your solution for live in care

Hiring live in help for our parents was not something we were looking forward to. Not only do they live in a very rural area, but they absolutely did not want any help at all. [Name removed] from Grandma Joan's turned this impossible task into a wonderful process with an incredible outcome. Every person we interviewed was a great candidate. The person we hired has made all the difference in the world to both my parents and to our entire family. Seven months after we hired our caregiver, I called [name removed] to ask a question. He not only answered my questions but he also remembered my family! [Name removed] is personal without being intrusive. He is responsive, resourceful, and respectful. We highly recommend him.

No perfect scenario

Difficult to have someone living in your home. Cultural differences, and the cost is also very high, we even feed this person! Still deciding about best way forward.

Response from Grandma Joan's Live-In Care Staffing Nationwide

November 15, 2018

Deb, Im sorry to hear that you are no longer satisfied. Its never perfect but usually the pros far outweigh the cons, especially when compared to the other options. Full-time custodial care is expensive. According to Genworth LTC, the average nursing home in the US cost 97k per year, and that is for a 10' x 10' room, no other private space, and having one CNA for every 12-24 residents to share. Call me and lets see if we can figure out a solution.

Don't know what we would have done without Grandma Joan's

I would just like to say how pleased we are that we found Grandma Joan’s. My wife’s uncle had a severe stroke and we are his only family. We live in Los Angeles and he lives outside a small town in Montana. We knew that we really wanted to find a way to get him back to his home as that was where he was happiest, but how to provide the care that would be needed was something that we were struggling to figure out. Once we found Grandma Joan’s the process became so much easier. [Name removed], the owner of Grandma Joan’s, helped us talk through how the process of finding a live-in caregiver would work. One of the big difficulties to overcome was that we were doubtful that he would be open to a female caregiver living with him, so [name removed] worked hard to find males for us to interview. We interviewed all three top candidates by phone, then did a video interview with our uncle on the top two, and from there made an offer to the person we considered as the best for the job. He is now living with our uncle, taking care of his needs (and our uncle can be a handful at times), watching out for the house, making meals, and contacting us to give reports. It has been incredibly wonderful to find someone that we feel that we could take into our family to care for uncle as we cannot be there. It is amazing to reflect on this and realize that we live in California, worked with [name removed] who is in New Jersey, to find a qualified and thoughtful caregiver who was living in Colorado, to move to Montana to care for our uncle. Now our trips to Montana are much happier occasions about seeing our uncle, the progress he is making, and how well he and his caregiver are doing together.

Unparalleled Service

The task of searching and hiring a full time, live-in caregiver is overwhelming with respect to its gravity and difficulty. [name removed] and Grandma [name removed]s made this task efficient and pleasant. The quality of the candidates presented to me was of the highest caliber, so high that the choice between the candidates was the most difficult part of the process. I offer many thanks for all of your efforts with one of the most important decisions a child will make for his/her parent.
