Lisa Glover ★★★★★ in the last week
I had multiple disciplines visiting my home to care for my mother. The workers who came gave me conflicting advise. I asked questions of the nurses who never got back to me with answers. Some answers were just quesses and I knew them to be wrong. I was accused of not answering calls that my phone shows no evidence were ever made. My equipment provider says Phycisians Choice did not return their calls. When I called to clarify things with a supervisor it was revealed that they do not meet as a multidisciplinary team. All records are kept on paper so one professional does not have access to what the others are doing. My mom is fortunate that i have a lot of experience with homecare. If you do not have time or knowledge to sort the care/insurance of your loved one they could land you in a real bind! Best wishes to all who are searching for quality home care! I hope you find my eeview helpful.

If I could leave negative stars, I would. Please DO YOUR RESEARCH before entrusting the well being of your loved ones (& often in the last period of their life at that)with this company. There's a lot of public information available, from them switching names while keeping the same cold ownership & ethics (or lack there of) to them getting sued by an employee calling them out on a their malpractices&them losing in court! Simply put, they put money& attempted notoriety ahead of people's safety&well being! As that former employee, I can tell you the judge ruled in my favor on the basis of blatant&dangerous lies on behalf of this company to both its employees&it's paying clients. I don't know honestly if it's 100% compromised of members of my old team (as advertised, their old alias is Encompass Senior Solutions) but I do know they are involved under the umbrella of this company. There's a reason they switched names and it's not because of good practices. I can provide proof of all facts afore mentioned but again court records are public information. Please PLEASE look at all options for in home healthcare before using a company correlated with awful intentions and ownership. There are so many options locally, allowing you to avoid a company who doesn't respect you or your loved ones! WOWT still has their story online regarding their loss in court and them calling putting me through serious (avoidable) health issues & my holding them accountable as "frivolous." Perfect example of their lack of basic empathy&accountability. I'm not a bitter ex employee, I'm an advocate for the sick & elderly and feel it's my duty to step forward again with the ugly truth that is this company!
