My parents both have health issues and I have tried to engage attendants from a large firm which provides attendants. I got calls from six different people (two doing targeted sales, two in equpment, one in nursing, one in attendants), the attendants who showed up all wanted to recommend cheaper friends who were not with that company. The company charged me for 10 sesssions, sent a thank you and we are done after 5 sessions. The equipment was late and required six different receipts because some was rented, some was purchased and came from different vendors. Every time I contacted them to tell them of some problem, they would send me an SMS (a) not fixing the problem (b) not even with the usual and useless acknowledgement but (c) with a request for filling out a feedback form.Thank goodness I am in decent shape to tolerate all this. What if I were a 60 year old, asking for attendants for my 90 year old parents. This experience might cause a crisis if I had any kind of stress-related health issues!
