Review submitted from a Website Submission by Z T (Nephew of Client) on Wednesday 24 August 2016. Relates to August 2016.
The carers are doing the best they can, but the service they provide is especially poor over the weekends. People in need, that the agency calls "clients", have to wait up to 4pm to get lunch or even worse - they could be missed out completely due to lack of staff. In such cases there is not even a courtesy phone call from the agency office to tell "clients" no one would come to help them.
The agency management disregards the need of elderly and ill people to have a regular daily meals or help as needed. I have seen the timetable the management makes for the carers. It is an impossible task. The management put one person on duty to serve 14 people in one day! No person can provide 14 lunches on 14 different addresses, all them on time!
Inadequate service aggravates the fragile conditions of elderly and people in needs. I personally tried to explain these problems to the management of the agency on several occasions but nothing has changed.
