Delivering Personalized and Comprehensive Home Care to Seniors

Client Reviews on caring.com

"I chose Living well because I felt like they had a much more personal and more caring approach to taking care of my mom. Tessa was my main contact initially. She has such an in depth knowledge and understanding about elder care and elders and the challenges that they face as well as the challenges of the family faces. I just felt that they were really knowledgeable. They're very caring and they had a very personalized approach. They chose their caregivers really carefully. They're very selective about their caregivers. Their caregivers are very caring. It's not like just the mechanics of taking care of someone. They actually care about the people they are taking care of. The caregivers really did everything from taking her shopping to cooking and cleaning the house. They took her to outings like to get her hair done or little errands and things so that she would be able to get out of the house. They helped her go to the bathroom because she had some problems with that. They helped her shower and get dressed."

 

"I had a fall and was diagnosed with macular degeneration, I thought the only option was to goto a horrible rehabilitation home. My kids live in the East Coast, so I was afraid.

A friend who was using the people from Living Well told me about their comprehensive services... I am back on my feet, with little supervision and they did it all, home visits by nurses to assure I was doing well, driving, cooking, and my personal care plus all the coordination was needed for all my appointments. My kids and I are very satisfied with their services. they are real professionals not another home care company. "

 

"I've known Living Well through word of mouth. It was actually from a person that we knew who helped us with our long term care insurance. They knew about Doris and Living Well. They recommended that we talk to her and so we made an appointment and met her. We liked her very much right away.

Whenever we need their help, from the very beginning, they've always been available. If we had to leave a message, we would always get a callback. They're very responsive and really knowledgeable. They know a lot of things that I don't know about that I have to do for the elderly and so I'm grateful for their knowledge. They not only know the type of care that my parents need but also about what the insurance policy covers. They understood the business side of it very well too. They don't push any solution or mandate. They're also really kind towards my mother. We're very pleased with them.

One of the caregivers was too attentive to my mother and she wanted to be more independent. So she changed and we got somebody who worked out better. There was really nothing wrong with the initial caregiver it's just that it wasn't a match."

Living Well listened to the needs and preferences of older adults planning for their futures and created a model of care that puts the senior in the driving seat by creating opportunities for lifelong learning and access to quality care for those who may need support as they age in place.
