My father has been using Unity 1 Home Health Care's services for about two years now. They are so wonderful with him. He has really liked all the care-givers that have come to see him. They are very knowledgeable and friendly. Everything is fantastic!

Maybe we had bad aids or maybe caught them with staffing issues or something. We had issues with aids calling and canceling not sending replacements. We had issues with a particular aid and had to have a nurse come in to advocate for my mom that the care she was receiving was not up to par to say it nicely. My mother had to cancel several important medical appointments due to aids not showing up or on time. It was like the company just didnt know what to do wwith my mom who is pretty much total assistantance. They would send aid wothout basic knowledge of what they were getting into or training on how to do things correctly. The worst thing is many family members would complain about service and they made us feel like we were lying. It was a horrible situation for my motherit really made her feel hopeless

My mother is now gone and I work full-time so it's hard for me to get over and help out my aging father. But, the people at Unity I Home Healthcare are amazing. They so often go out of their way to ensure that my father has what he needs, as they also did for my mother. These women from Unity could never be compensated enough for what they have given my family. There is no limit to the value of the love and compassion they have willingly given. They are a gift and I thank God for them everyday.

Unity 1 Home Health Care sent wonderful care givers to my parent's home. They were such wonderful people and added to my mother's life more than they could ever know. Many of the care givers visited us at mom's funeral to say one last goodbye.
