We couldn't have asked for better care
Your review:
Mum's carer was exactly what we would have hoped for. She identified a number of improvements to her care regime that we were happy to act on and they were successful. It is just a shame that mum had to be hospitalised and we no longer needed the service. We would contact them in a trice if we need them again.

Early days but good so far
Your review:
Not a big choice of providers or caters, but one found for the start date we wanted. So far the carer fits well but we have not had a replacement to give our carer time off. This survey should be sent out after several months not a couple of weeks. Prices marginally higher than advised on website so argument that it is more cost effective than a home is probably incorrect.

I needed to find a home quickly and COVID makes that very challenging, I was able to call to enquire, do a visit and pre-assessment the following day, he was then able to live in the home 2 days later and only had to self isolate for about 24 hours until the PCR test came back

Poor administration with minimal quality control
Your review:
No evidence during four years of use that the Agency ever reviewed the standard of service provided by their self employed Carers. One face to face meeting to resolve a particular compliant. We moved to another Agency not on your list, Able Care. During the first month of service they have operated professionally and appear to appoint Carers only after face to face interviews. Too soon to give them a reliable rating.

I didn't get a carer
Your review:
Because the person I care for was partly mobile I was told he didn't need live in care, what about the carers? it's a hard job. Maybe they need help so I found it unhelpful and a bit insensitive that he said that. Young carers should get more care and shouldn't be charged their life savings to recieve the tiniest but of help. It's rediculous. I wasn't please with the prices or service at all extortionate prices insensitive advice.

Good Value Live-In Care
Your review:
The level of care has been excellent, Care workers are all Polish. They are self employed but are managed and trained by Promedica24. . Carers typically travel from Poland to undertake assignments of 6-8 weeks. The company's administration and structure of management has been difficult to understand but it works. Because carers are independent contractors Promedica24 cannot guarantee continuity of service using the same carers.

The care provider got our home address wrong on several occasions when sending the carer and in a subsequent office visit (despite clear records on file). Overall, an expensive, agency, and in my view this could not be justified, or re-negotiated. From an agency perspective, it should have been worth keeping a good paying self-funding client.

Extremely efficient company. From the onset Elder took a genuine interest to determine the right carer for an elderly lady. They completely took the stress out of a stressful situation. As a client you receive a dedicated family support manager, there is no breakdown of communication, they actually DO what they say they’ll do! Very professional, very friendly and deliver what you need. I would highly recommend them.

Chances upon the advert on Facebook one Sunday evening. An Elder Care person phoned the following morning. After filling out a detailed form about our needs, which was swiftly followed up with a 15 minute phone interview, the Elder coordinator sent two video profiles of Carers she thought would suit. We chose one, and she proved excellent. Can’t rate Elder highly enough! My Dad enjoyed a fortnight’s care and companionship while I had a break. Will use Elder again as soon as I can!
