Choosing a home care provider is a difficult task. When my father moved from Florida to live with us in 2014, we needed help a few hours each week. We started with one of the large, nationwide home care providers and found the services "just ok." Fortunately, we found out a year or two later that my father's VA benefits included some assistance with home care. The VA connected me with Cura Care, one of their approved third party providers. After a conversation with Frank, I knew this was the right provider. Frank spent a long time on the phone explaining all the ins and outs of VA benefits. He and his wife had actually started their Cura Care business because they had personal experience with the tangled web of finding the right caregivers and paying for home care for their own aging parents. They know the challenges!
Throughout the last few years, we have had several Cura Care caregivers for my dad, each very capable. Our last spent almost a year with us and almost became part of our family. She was reliable, compassionate, and considerate of both the needs of my dad and our own need for privacy. As my father's condition declined, we needed to add hours and supplement respite time in order to continue to keep him here at home. Cura Care was always able to fill in the gaps with extra coverage for anything we needed. In addition, Frank handled all the paperwork with the VA as far as invoices and reimbursements, and I can't imagine how much money he saved us over the years. Good care, reasonable pricing, and personal attention. Highly recommend.
