(Excerpts from LivHOME clients/families)
I feel so lucky to have found LivHOME when we needed caregiving for my father. I have been amazed by the professionalism of your whole team and the flexibility and responsiveness you have shown in working with our specific situation and frequently changing needs. You have been there for us - even on short notice and weekends!!! Your staff spent extra time making sure the caregivers were oriented to dad's needs and they seemed well supported and supervised by your care managers. We have had wonderful, attentive caregivers that have really connected with my father. I would gladly recommend your services to anyone wanting in-home caregiving. As a registered nurse, I know quality care when I see it! A huge burden came off my shoulders when you came in to help us with dad. My heartfelt thanks to all of you!

After suffering a fall in late January of 2012, then hospitalization and rehabilitation, our uncle was faced with needing around-the-clock care. He has a beautiful home that he cherishes and was adamant about not going to an assisted living facility. We contacted LivHOME and were able to engage them immediately to provide around-the-clock care our uncle needed. We have been very impressed with the care he has received and have absolute trust in the decisions the professionals at LivHOME make on his behalf. Our uncle is healing well and consistently progressing. We feel that LivHOME has enriched his life and has been an ideal match for him.

Toni Maldonado and the caregivers at LivHOME were real life savers for me, in an incredible time of crisis in my life. My father took a very sudden, dramatic decline in his physical and mental health and I was in desperate need of in home care assistance, but more importantly, advice and guidance. Toni provided support and wise council, for which I am grateful beyond words! I cannot fathom how I would have survived the crisis without her knowledge of not only my pending needs, but my father’s. It was her hospital recommendation which resulted in my father receiving a corrected diagnosis and the resulting correct medications. This action saved his life, literally.
Toni and her staff are not just service providers ... they are truly caring people. This emanates from the top down, from Toni’s leadership. Toni set the standard for all caregivers. She went way beyond my expectations. She was available in the utmost sense of the word, putting in many, many hours, even giving my family and I a piece of her heart. In a very real way, she feels like an extended part of my family.
Please call Toni with your home care needs. She will do her BEST to help you find what services, or combination of services, are right for your family member ... and you!

When our mom needed 24/7 care at home, you were so responsive to our needs. Your professionalism, knowledge of what needed to be done, and availability really exceeded anything I could have expected. The caregivers themselves have all been top-notch – their compassion and patience have been wonderful to experience. Mom isn’t always easy to deal with, but the caregivers always knew how to help her and make her comfortable. Thank you for being there in so many ways for us. You have all made something that is difficult for our family much easier to manage. I wish you all the biggest success at LivHOME. You are the best!

My mom had a horrible life changing event back in February of 2012, which forever will affect her and her family; she experienced a hemorrhagic stroke. No warning signs, no risk factors. Her speech, her body and her spirits have all been deeply wounded. My faith in God and my love and respect for my mom has always been present, but grew exponentially stronger from the moment I found her that Sunday.
Since the stroke, I have been my mom's voice, her energy, and handled everything from love and support to financial and medical decisions, and being the best I can be, for her best recovery. Consequently I have a lot invested in her happiness, health + well being and sense of normalcy. She matters very much in my life but also very much in the lives of so many people she has befriended and supported over the years. Her life is very important clearly. She has received and continues to receive dozens and dozens of letters and cards supporting her recovery. It is a very slow but positive journey.Taking care of mom has been my pleasure and privilege, it has given me the perspective of life's journey, the realization of what matters and the reminder of how precious and important a smile and a laugh is. I look to her to know how to feel, and I am a millionaire in happiness dollars when she flashes a smile or makes me laugh.We made the realization that living at home was a real possibility only about a month and a half before her discharge date in June. No one guided me to think of this option, it happened because I thought and asked and learned about the choices. Thank God we chose this route because at first it seemed "aggressive" to do so, but now in hindsight it is a definite "no-brainer"; she is happy, healthy and is thriving -- especially with the care giving company we hired, LivHOME. Let me tell you why and how.LivHOME is a company dedicated to creating a environment which enables people to get their life back. Not only is there "no place like home", there is no place like LivHOME; the team approach they use is unique and very effective: first, LivHOME uses a holistic team of highly caring professionals, who each took the time to meet with mom and me (their nurse care manager, their social work care manager, as well as the agency owner and executive director), which was not only delightful, respectful and supportive but useful and practical. We got matched with a superb caregiver, who had not only been properly and thoroughly background-checked, but also was easy to work with mom, given the personality matching interview techniques that LivHOME uses; a very solid method.Our caregiver attends to my mom on a second's notice whenever needed. She is respectful of needed down time, and needed "up time". She is a fabulous cook. She is a caring and engaged therapist, who listens to the needed "rehab homework" (speech, physical and occupational therapies) and facilitates these activities daily. She is a friend and a girlfriend to mom. She cares and listens.In the end, I would choose to be the care giver mom needs if I could, but I can't due to my job and my need to work. LivHOME is the very next best thing to her having me by her side; the company shares my mom's and my goals for improvement, their caregivers support the needed "fight" and give the needed love, ...and make delicious meals (something which is up and beyond my area of expertise for sure!).LivHOME is EXACTLY what we need, what we expect, and who we plan on partnering with for years to come. Life is not ever going to be the same for my mom. But there will be joy and there will be new found happiness. We are thrilled she is able to be at home with LivHOME.
