They are highly flexible. We appreciate that they accept VA benefits. And they're pretty conscientious. When they hire, there's a pretty thorough screening process. The owners are amazing. We've had just one caregiver the whole time. My loved one feels really comfortable with her. We've had some last-minute schedule changes, and she's been there for about 99% of them to help us out. She's pretty friendly and stays on top of things. My loved one doesn't need a high level care, but she's there to help with some of the things he does need.
