We are looking at this community for a family member now and we like it a lot. The staff are very good at what they do. The biggest complaint i have was some of the things that we were promised were never delivered and my mother - in law- just went without the beginning introductions.

Realize that they're a broker actually. The home aides they refer don't work directly for them. They just provide background checks and verifications. And the billing is through a different company. They're taking a decent cut of the total cost, but I appreciated that they negotiated the price with me so I could make sure the aide was getting paid enough. The one aide we've had has been very good. I like her a lot. She knows her stuff and seems to be good with people with memory issues. She keeps looking for things to do, and is totally prompt. She's been flexible when I've had to adjust the hours. I like the way she tries to engage my wife with activities and conversations, even though my wife has shown some opposition.

They were great and I had no problems with them. The caregiver was always quick to respond, if we ran into something she would find someone else for me and was very professional and receptive to any concerns that we had. I would recommend them.

I would tell others to make sure that the caregivers are actually doing what they are supposed to do on their evaluation sheet that they turn into the supervisors. I would recommend to others looking.
