This is by far the worst company to work for. There is no management. They can't keep a director if nursing because due to lack of pay. Company financially unstable.

I was recently released from the hospital and was in need of physical therapy and insulin injections 3 times a day. The discharge planner had trouble finding an agency who could accomadate so much nursing and services and had found LS Professional comfort homes willing and able to accept me and my needs. I was so pleased that the admission nurse had come out to see me right away after i was discharged and a therapist was starting to take care of me that very next day.I am very pleases with the care, promptness and compassion thta i have recieved. i would definiatly recomend this company to anyone

My mother had recently come home from the hospital and needed homecare services.I had contacted LS Professional and the Supervisor was extremely helpful in expaining all my health care options.My mother was coming home on a ventilator and I found that this was the only agency in town who could provide this care.I had recieved 24hr care that was set up within a day prior to my mom coming home.I cant thank LS Professional Comfort homes as much for the sincere loving care that was provided to me and my mom.I am so glad that the staffing was worked out so my mom didnt have to go into a nursing home.I would reccomend this company to anyone.We have had other agencys in the past but this one is more caring and knowledgable than any other agency that I had dealt with in the past.

We have a family member with Alzheimer's who needed around the clock care. LS Professional helped us throughout the entire process. They helped us find an apartment. The company even provided the furnishings including appliances and bed linens. The owner personally came out the the residence to make sure our cousin was comfortable. The staff frequently prepared home cooked meals. They made sure he took his medication and helped him with all of his person needs(ie bathing, bathroom, ect.)Our cousin was an animal lover and one of the staff members would on occation bring her dog over to visit witch he enjoyed very much. I would highly recommend this agency for anyone who wants to ensure proper care of a loved one.

THIS COMPANY IS STRICTLY ABOUT THE FUNDS. THE STAFF SHOW NO COMPASSION FOR THE CLIENTS. IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUES WITH THE SERVICE OF CARE, YOU WON'T BE ALLOW TO ADDRESS YOUR ISSUES WITH NO SUPERVISOR. THIS COMPANY IS JUST BAD NEWS AND IF I WAS YOU I WOULD AVOID THIS COMPANY ALL TOGETHER. I WISH I WOULD'VE RESEARCH THIS COMPANY FIRST.
