What does it mean to be a Best of Home Care award-winning provider?
Best of Home Care award-winning providers have earned high satisfaction ratings from their clients and caregivers. Client and caregiver satisfaction ratings are gathered by Home Care Pulse, a third-party quality management firm. Home Care Pulse interviews at least 10% of their clients (or family members of clients) and/or caregivers each month. Based upon their ratings, Best of Home Care Awards are given to the home care providers who have met or exceeded benchmark satisfaction scores for their geographic region.
How often are the Best of Home Care awards presented?
Once a home care provider has been using the Home Care Pulse Quality Management Program for a minimum of six months, their business is evaluated for award consideration. Thereafter, home care providers are evaluated every January to measure their satisfaction levels for the prior calendar year.
Where do the reviews come from, and how can I be sure that they are from real clients?
All reviews are 100% verified, meaning we guarantee their authenticity. Home Care Pulse does not allow home care providers to manually enter reviews or to only select the reviews with the top ratings to be displayed. Instead, each home care provider selects a percentage of the interviews that Home Care Pulse conducts each month with the provider’s clients/family members of clients to be displayed on BestofHomeCare.com. Once this percentage is selected, the Home Care Pulse system randomly selects the reviews to display based upon the selected percentage. This process ensures that BestofHomeCare.com visitors see an accurate representation of actual client/family member experiences with the home care provider.
Do home care providers pay a fee to be listed on BestofHomeCare.com?
No. Home care providers are not able to purchase a listing on BestofHomeCare.com. They are also not able to pay to influence their rating or search ranking. Awards, reviews and ratings are all based upon actual client/family member and caregiver feedback. BestofHomeCare.com believes that the best way for an individual or family seeking home care is to learn from the experiences of other clients/family members.
Can I submit reviews about a home care agency to BestofHomeCare.com?
Not directly. All reviews are gathered from interviews between Home Care Pulse and the clients/families and caregivers of the home care agencies listed. If you are currently a client of one of these agencies, you may be contacted for a phone interview and that feedback may be randomly selected to be used as a review on BestofHomeCare.com. This system ensures that every review is 100% verified and authentic.
