We hired St Joseph’s recently for my Grandmother’s hospice care. Originally, we chose this company because the medical director was already my grandmother’s doctor and made home visits (which he no longer provides.) Also, the company was willing to work with our already established routine. Our grandmother is in end stages of Alzheimer’s and became bedridden after breaking her second hip. We have prevented UTI’s and bedsores which is directly attributed to the personal family care we provide and the great attention we take in keeping her schedule. It should be mentioned that my father is a M.D. and has extensive knowledge in how to prevent bed bound patients from getting very ill, as he deals with bedsores and wounds almost on a daily basis. We also have a private CNA to make sure my Grandmother is never left alone. We requested to have a CNA at the house promptly at 8:30 each morning. The first CNA that was assigned to us was very nice but as she had another family before my grandmother and was unable to get there promptly at 8:30am and could not come every day. The second one assigned to us immediately came in to the house not wanting to do anything and giving orders about “how we should” care for my grandmother. Apparently, as my family is fortunate to have additional help, the CNA’s assigned to us thought that meant that our private nurse should do everything and they didn’t have to be there on time, let alone help bathe or feed my Grandmother. The 2nd CNA was continually late each morning and excuses ranged from being out late the night before to simply stating that there was no reason for her to be there that early as our CNA was getting my grandmother out of bed anyways. When she was informed that being prompt was necessary she took it out on my grandmother. It resulted in her scratching my grandmother and causing a 2 inch gash down her arm from her fake nails. In the 6 months my grandmother has been bedridden, our family and private nurse has not once scratched our grandmother and this “trained” hospice CNA did. Against our better judgement, we did not immediately fire St. Joseph’s and we were assigned a new CNA. They assured us nothing like this would ever happen again and a CNA would be there every morning promptly at 8:30. The new CNA was on time and helpful for 2 weeks. The 3rd week she showed up late every day and started sitting in her car for up to 30 minutes before even coming in. When we contacted the administrative staff at St. Joseph they had no reply for the unprofessional nature of their staff or the lack of organization and stated that they would no longer be honoring their commitment to have a CNA at our house promptly at 8:30. They also implied that we should be grateful someone was even coming to our house. It should also be noted that there was no consistency in the RNs that were assigned to our grandmother, which meant we had to go through the entire history each time a new one showed up. We did everything we could to work with this hospice as we loved one of the nurses who came out and the Chaplin who visited. IF your loved one requires “intense” care (bathing, feeding, and administration of medication) do not hire this company. The CNA’s you are assigned will do the bare minimum in terms of care. We encourage you to take the bad reviews seriously and go with another company.
Yummy I could eat the lo mein egg rolls and krab rangoon everyday and the general tso chicken hot and sour soup and and and its just all good my next try is the (curry)mei fun..maybe tomorrow. its close to my house and prices are really...I could eat there everyday priced.
There was a mistake in shipping, but the owner David took care of it quickly. Honest and professional.
looking for hard to find shower diverter valve insert and they had it! Saved me a bunch of money on buying a whole new shower faucet.
If I could give them no stars, I would! This is the only location in our entire county that does license testing! Even though I arrived at 8am, I was still turned around because they were not giving out anymore numbers! So I have to try again tomorrow! They tell me that making an appointment would be my best option but there aren't any available appointments until the end of May! The issue being my son has to have his learner's permit before Monday! This is just rediculous! They should have more then one location that does the testing! I don't understand why they make it so difficult for ppl who have jobs to get their license needs taken care of!

the whole purpose of a cab company is to transport someone to their destination of choice and do so in a timely manner. This was not done whatsoever by A-1. I am a U.S Marine and in the interest of making sure I would make it to my early morning flights home called ahead the night before to arrange a ride to the airport from my hotel, about a 15 minute drive. The company answered, took my information and was very cordial about it. The next morning I'm waiting outside right when the cab is supposed to be there, with all of my luggage. Five minutes past the time I call to see if I still had a ride. The driver I had arranged with did not answer my 7 phone calls nor my multiple txt messages. I was not rude nor was I irate even though I was going to miss my flight home to see my family. The driver I was attempting to call at one point even hung up the phone on me. So I knew he was aware of my deserate pleas to just get to the Airport and make my flight. He did not care, that even though he made an arrangement with me and is a man doing a job that requires punctuality that I was late.
Wonderful!!!! There are no words for the great work!! Tam is great to deal with, delivers on time and on budget.
He didn't correct the problem, took the money and ran, as soon as the next day when the problem returned, he could not be reached and no longer even has the same phone number. Found out after inquiring, he has no business license or insurance.
