Reviews from Our Clients
I think they were polite, and they knew what to do. They did the things that I wasn't able to do when I first got home from rehab.
The owner at Assisting Hands does everything she can to provide the service and meet our needs. They have made life easier for my husband who is severely handicapped. We have had great caregivers who can communicate with my husband and take care of his needs.
They were here when they were expected and very careful about the care they were doing. They were preparing one meal a day for me. They also assisted me on the stairway.
I think it’s just the people that I have. I have two different caregivers and they are just really good, so I like the quality of them. If one is sick, I don’t have to worry about it because I know they’ll find someone to take over the case. I am able to work and run errands. They’ve also helped with my loved one’s exercises, so they are very dedicated to doing those with him.
