Listen to our clients talk about
the quality of our care
“I have been impressed by the quality and the dedication of the women Integra has sent me.”
“I was listened to about my concerns and felt as though I was a person. I really like my caregiver as they are very willing to help me out.”
“There is nothing Integra and its staff won’t do to answer all questions and be friendly and polite. All visits have been professional and beneficial. It is always nice to call Integra and have my call answered by someone. A live, caring and professional person is 100% better than a voice mail or “option” selection. If I need to leave a message for someone, they always call back quickly and that day. This is important to me.”
“Our son’s caregiver is an amazing individual and we don’t think she realizes how much of a contribution she makes to our family. Because of her, we are able to work, run errands, and get much-needed rest and life breaks that help replenish our family to do it all over again. She will always have a special place in our hearts.”
“I have been extremely blessed and lucky to have met my caregiver. Eight years ago he started working for me at my house and he has never disappointed me in any way”
“My caregiver is “family” and has turned out to be like a brother to me more than I thought possible. He is a very caring person!”
“My caregiver is the best caregiver around; she is kind, pleasant, and eager to do anything the client wants. She is so professional, she knows what I want to do and I do not have to tell her. There is nobody that will compare to her.”
“My son’s caregiver makes every day special and fun, and we think she has gone beyond the needs of care for our son. He has improved so much on all he does. Our caregiver is great with my son and with his behaviors”
