When it comes to trust, attention and quality care, both clients and caregivers agree that 5 Star Home Care is a company they want to work with.
"Coming here is the best decision I ever made," caregiver Kimberly Womack said in regards to the company. "This type of home care is more personal and just better all around."
The local state-licensed home care provider offers nonmedical personal care, assistance and companionship for clients to help them maintain their independence and be able to stay in their homes. Services offered include everything from meal preparation and errand running to laundry and personal care.
Sharon Brown, one of 5 Star Home Care's clients, agrees that choosing 5 Star has been a tremendous blessing.
"I wouldn't take a million dollars for the caregiver 5 Star Home Care sends," said Brown. "Their caregivers really do just about anything I need, and they are more professional and attentive than any others I've had."
Brown added she is thankful 5 Star not only matched her with someone who can assist with her personal care needs, but 5 Star also paid attention and sent someone who matches her personality as well.
The company matching her with Womack has been such a great fit that she now thinks of her as a daughter, she said.
We even tell each other we love each other when we come and go," said Brown. "She's been with me for about two years now, but it seems just like yesterday."
5 Star Home Care sends Womack to care for Brown seven days a week for a set number of hours each day. She does housework and helps Brown with her activities, but above all else she keeps her company and strives to build and maintain a quality relationship with her, per 5 Star's goals and standards.
"Home: There's no place quite like it," said 5 Star President Kenny Higdon, quoting the company's slogan. "That's the main reason why people choose us. No place offers comfort and peace of mind more than your own home."
Care levels offered by 5 Star range from having someone in the home for minor assistance and companionship a few hours a week to 24/7 care with more assistance from caregivers. 5 Star also has caregivers qualified to help clients with Alzheimer's, dementia and Parkinson's disease. Care plans are customized and tailored to each client's needs.
Higdon noted that continuous care by a specific caregiver is provided in all situations to maintain quality companionship and build solid relationships between clients and their caregiver.
"I sure would recommend 5 Star to anyone who needs this type of care," said Brown. "I really enjoy the companionship, and they do just a great job on everything."
