Our satisfied clients and family members say…
The best endorsement we can get is from our clients and their families. Here is a sampling of the kind words we have received:
"I have been extremely blessed and lucky to have met my PCA. Eight years ago he started working for me at my house and he has never disappointed me in any way.
My PCA is reliable beyond the definition of the word. In 8 years he's never missed a day of work. That's almost 3000 days! He always finds a way to get to me whether obstacles are in the way or not. There have been times that his vehicle wouldn't start or broke down and he would call a taxi.
One day his vehicle wouldn't start and he couldn't get a taxi. Instead of "throwing in the towel" he ran from his Burnsville apartment to my house in Lakeville. That's over 7 miles in the winter! I checked the mileage myself when I gave him a ride home later that day!
His courteousness when there are people at my house is more than I can ask for. He never enters my house or "personal space" without making sure it is ok to do so first. He respects the space of all people and if there is any question that he might "cross the line" he doesn't go without approval..
My PCA doesn't drink, he doesn't smoke, he doesn't bring any "baggage" to my life whatsoever. The need for a PCA isn't something anybody wants. We cannot live without one. We want to feel totally independent even though we are not. The way my PCA approaches his job of helping meis as close as I will get to feeling independent. "
"My PCA is the best PCA around; she is kind, pleasant and eager to do anything the client wants. She is so professional, she knows what I want to do and I do not have to tell her. She is lovable and works very hard. She is always on time, she takes care of me and my home like I was her mother and it was her home. I would like to adopt her. She is the greatest, believe me I have had quite a few PCAs and there is no one that comes up to her standards. And when she gives me a bath, a shower she is so caring and so careful and wants to do everything that makes me comfortable. When I get out of the shower I feel like a million bucks. She is just absolutely wonderful; never had a PCA that does what she does. When I am sick, she is by my side the whole time. There is nobody that will compare to her. "
""My son's PCA makes every day special and fun, and we think she has gone beyond the needs of care for our son. He has improved so much on all he does. Our PCA is great with my son and with his behaviors; he can be a handful. ""
" When you have a child with special needs, life is already complicated enough. So when you start admitting strangers into your home to care for your child, you want the very best. My sons' PCA is a soft-spoken woman that has every value an exceptional PCA should have. We tell everyone we wish we could clone her, because it is difficult to find quality people to care for our son.
When she first started with us, our son's PCA picked up on our son's schedule quickly and soon became expert at his cares. Currently when our son is having good days, she talks to him, plays with him and makes him laugh. She even patiently puts up with his sometimes very loud "happy sounds." On his bad days, she stands vigilant to his needs and cuddles him when he does not feel well.
Our son's PCA is kid and respectful to all persons she encounters. When personal issues arise for our family or when our son is having an emergency, she takes things in stride and remains professional, making sure our son's needs are met. She also takes initiative in getting things done so that if we forget to do something, she has already completed the task by the time we remember to do it.
Our son's PCA is on time for her shifts, hardly ever takes well-deserved vacation time, and is rarely gone due to illness. She is always flexible when asked to adjust her schedule due to our son's sudden health changes or if work or appointments run earlier or later than expected.
Our son's PCA is an amazing individual and we don't think she realizes how much of a contribution she makes to our family. Because of her, we are able to work, run errands, and get much-needed rest and life breaks that help replenish our family to do it all over again.
She will always have a special place in our hearts. "
"My PCA is not only my PCA and Homemaker, she is my best friend. She always finds a way to put a smile on my face. With my PCA's positive attitude I forget about any health problems I may have. She makes me feel better not only physically but mentally as well. I believe that my well-being is much better with my PCA around. She devotes herself to me, whenever I have a need and this is the greatest value for me. "
"My PCA is "family" and has turned out to be like a brother to me more than I thought possible. He is a very caring person! "
"My PCA always makes sure all of my needs are met. She is very flexible and caring to what I need! "
