In home Care

This is a excellent service. They were able to help me get someone when needed. The care taker does arrive on time. We like that she does help with personal care and house keeping to help. My mom is happy with the assistance and we would recommend this service and the care taker for other families needing in home assistance for a good value

Nice tour!!

I have no complaints about the tour I had of this community for my loved one. The staff where on time to our appointment and made sure to answer any questions we had for them in detail. They had a clean facility with a lot of great amenities available to all of the residents as well as an open floor plan. They just did not have the care my mom would have needed for her medical needs.

A good service

The caregivers that come out to the house are friendly and have gone above and beyond. They do what is asked of them and take initiative to help in anyway they are able to. When we set up the service they explained everything upfront. I would recommend this home care agency.

We had a really good experience with them.

We had a really good experience with them. They were reliable, and knowledgeable, and friendly. The billing went really smooth. This was a great solution for us, it went really well.

Efficient and hands down the best caregiver we have had for my in-laws to date.

So far, they have provided good service.

Paying attention to detail is key!

Working with Advocates hasn't been the best experience although it hasn't been the worst either. When I originally reached out them they placed a caregiver that just was not the perfect fit. I don't feel that she was evaluated prior to being sent and I did ask for this particular caregiver to be replaced. Her replacement has been great and I really love her! I'm glad they got it right the second time around. I truly appreciate everything our current caregiver does!

I would highly recommend Advicates for the Independent. Sherrie Murray held our hand as we walked through the process of getting my dad home. From meeting with us - to going to the facility to meet Dad and get information - to numerous phone calls checking on things -- we felt that Sherrie was always there to help. So far, the 3 providers working with my Mom and Dad have been professional yet very caring. I am thankful that we are working with this company and appreciate all that has been done to help with my Dad.

So far it's been pretty good.

They did a great job

Good caregivers

Caregivers keeps changing, current one is fair. Supervisors are good and easy to work with. Good communication


She’s wonderful. We only had the one woman so far, but she’s been great. She tries to engage my loved one with activities. As far as care services, she just stays with my loved one when we have to go out. We’ve been very happy with this service.

They tried to be responsive to my needs

It was my first experience. When they knew they were going to miss, they did their best to make arrangements, but sometimes the absence happened at the last minute. They tried to be responsive to my needs and any changes.

I have been very happy with them so far.

I have been very happy with them so far. We have been able to have the same person come out. We may even expand our hours. I didn't do a whole lot of checking around but they seem to be on the less expensive side of things.

Nothing but good things to say!

Nothing but good things to say! The friendliness of the staff is one of the biggest pluses! We've had the same caretaker come since the beginning, and she's really great! When we had an issue regarding some bad weather, communication ended up reaolving the issue. They've done a really great job, and we are very impressed. We would recommend them to anyone who is looking for home care options!
