Our family would use them on a random basis and not a weekly basis, and they have a 4hr minimum per shift which really worked out for us.

Originally we started out needing someone during the day a few days a week. Then I needed someone in the evening a couple days a week as well. They weren't as able to take care of the evening shift. A couple of the people who were supposed to come didn't show. But Options as a company are very responsive. They really tried to work out that evening shift for us, but I ended up having to go to another agency for the evening shift. For the most part, my needs were satisfied with Options. It was only when I added an additional requirement that they couldn't accommodate, but it wasn't for lack of them trying. And I'm very satisfied with them. I kept them for the day shift. I've had two different caretakers. The first one was very good and stayed with us a long time. I considered her a family member. She was great with my loved one, she cooked, and she tried to get us on a healthy diet. It was good fit. The second person is very good as well, just different. Each person has different types of things they focus on. She calls us sir and ma'am. If she sees me going to the laundry, she says no sir, I'll take care of that. They've both been very good but have different skill sets.

I think I chose the best agency with Everyeady. Others I looked at had attitude problems. This one does not. They've been very nice. Our caregiver is excellent. I called around to several agencies, and Eveready's pricing is the most reasonable. They work along with you and just provide excellent service. My husband loves them. He asked for a gentleman caregiver, and that's exactly what they sent. I would tell anyone looking for home care that Eveready is the best.
