    Visiting Nurses Home Care
    Visiting Nurses Home Care was very good. They helped with my disabled sister. They were very professional. They were awesome all the way around.

    Benjamin D. Eckman Esq - Paramus
    Great. Ben guided us through the myriad of Medicare, Medicaid, probate + other laws that keep changing every year. He helped us find a legitimate way to protect the little bit of money left after my father died so we could use it for my mother's care as well as whatever she may pass on to us (her children.) Ben is a gentle, sympathetic man and I would recommend him and his associates to anyone needing help navigating the scary area of Elder Law, healthcare, estate planning, etc.

    Nationwide Lifts Inc
    The lift is wonderful; it really is amazing. I am in a wheelchair and it is very accommodating for me. They have been very willing to come back without charging me to come back adjustments.

    Howard Orthotics & Prosthetics LLC
    After my visit with an orthopedic doctor who recommended the brace I was able to be seen by Sara Gallagher who helped me become familiar with my new brace. She was knowledgeable and attentive and made me feel very comfortable both with my new appliance and with her level of skill. Each member of the staff, from my first phone call to filling out forms right through paying the bill, was a pleasure to deal with. We're very fortunate to have these fine examples of professionalism and skill in Watertown, NY.

    Visiting Nurse Association
    They have 2 options, a visiting nurse or companion. I decided on the companion, they told me they had someone in mind but they needed to train her. Apparently there is alot of red tape to get through. The last time I talked to them she needed to go for a physical examine. I called them back, they didn't know what was going on and would have to have the manager call me back. The manager has never called me back. I'm not very impressed with this company. The companion care is on their website but it doesn't seem to be very well developed, if at all. I probably won't end up using them based their communication and companion department that's under developed.

    The carefamily set-up is such that either candidates can contact job providers or vice versa.  A provider can surf by entering how much an hour they can afford to pay and the candidates willing to accept that amount turn up in the listing.  Part of the total hourly amount is a charge by carefamily that is supposed to cover taxes and other costs associated with hiring a caregiver.  For example, if you can afford to hire a caregiver for $15/hour,  you may find caregivers listed that are willing to accept $12 with an additional $3 fee attached.  What is not made clear is that that fee does not actually cover the taxes the family must pay... that amount is on top of the $15.  The $3/hour fee covers the bond worker's comp insurance provides for the candidates, alleged background and work history checks on each candidate and the cost of having a 'case manager' for each job provider... not to mention quite a hefty profit when you consider that the cost of a bond and workman's comp insurance are not very pricey and for a full-time person, carefamily in the above scenario would already bring in $120/week, which is $480/month, which is $2,820/year... and the family still has to cover their share of the employment tax.  And again, none of this is made clear on the website... it seems as though the $3 is to pay the taxes as well. A person from carefamily contacted me a couple of weeks after joining, after I had already contacted one of the potential candidates I found interesting.  She gently chastised me for not going through her (although I had not noticed anywhere forbidding the contact AND the message I sent was directly through the messaging service.)  She asked lots of questions, assured me that each candidate was well-vetted and said she may have other candidates I might want to speak to.  The person I interviewed seemed great at first glance and a vet on top of it (I quite liked the idea of giving a vet some work) but in the face-to-face interview, there were a number of things said that just didn't sound right to me.  A resume and references were provided and I asked for details of the person's service including years of service and conditions of discharge.  She claimed one thing in the beginning of the interview and the story swayed the next time we spoke on the phone.  She claimed ER experience and told tales of the most memorable cases (all of which sounded familiar to me... and turned out to be plot lines for Grey's Anatomy and one of the medical reality TV shows.)  She said could provide her discharge papers and they stated yet another un-mentioned reason for her leaving the service.  Needless to say, I did not pursue this candidate further, and of course no longer had faith in the veracity of 'vetting' by the team.   I would not reccomend this service, but if a person really wants to, just read all of the fine print and make sure you do your own vetting... just use this as a glorified registry that comes at a steep cost. Additionally, despite having requested via phone to discontinue this service, it still tried to continue charging my credit card.

    Hospicare Inc
    The owner, Mark, is the most arrogant and rude man I have ever encountered. When you're sick and need supplies, he is the LAST person you want to see. His service is sloppy and no one should have to put up with his rudeness and unethical practices. My husband and I asked him about providing a wheelchair ramp for our home. My Comp carrier was to review his recommendations and decide whether or not his suggestion would be accepted. As it turned out, the carrier denied his services and went with another company. When we needed a copy of an offer that he made for a ramp, he screamed and shouted and stated that it would cost us $25 to get a copy of his one sentence recommendation, because we didn't buy it from him!!! It was not even our decision whether or not to purchase from him. It was entirely up to my insurance carrier at that time. This guy needs a psychiatrist and needs to sell cow dung instead of medical equipment to sick and dying people. Please Note: This wasn't the only problem we had with him. The service was abrupt, rude, and inconsistent with good standards of doing business with the public.
