How We Made A Difference

  • review rating 2  I used Care24 services for 7 months duration in 2019-20. Carers they provide are a mixed bag. Some are really good while others lack even basic service skills. You got to be very very lucky to get one and same carer over long time as carers often go on leave. When regular carer is on leave, every time they will send new carer. So family members need to repeat everything, right from home address, directions to patient's routine, medicines etc. Do not expect that Care24 will provide any heads-up or patient routine information to new carer who is visiting. Over the 6 months of Mumbai-based care services I used from Care24, there were over 15 instances where new carers were late more than 2 to 3 hours. Care24 support team is very lethargic, there were times when support team assumed that carer has reached home when he had not even started from his place. Support team is unaware of carers being late to customer's place. Then came in so called, the technology upgrade, Jan-Feb 2020, they had a new IT system and there were numerous issues with billing, sending invoices and payment receipts to customers (as told by support team themselves). Support staff told me at least 10 times over phone and email that there are system issues in billing and payment, I had to calculate amount manually on my own and then Pay them. With new system, accounts were on toss, no invoices were sent to customers (in spite of the fact that payment policy says payment needs to be made after receiving invoice.) I had 20-25 emails following up for invoice and payment receipts, but their support team in Mumbai did not care to respond. I found their behavior very unprofessional and not good over these 2-3 months. If you are outside for work (or overseas) and not staying with the patient or your parents, I strongly suggest DO NOT USE CARE24, as they do not respond to your emails and phone in time. They do not bother even when the patient is without care because of their delays in operations and carer issues. They need to improve basic operations first, give timely and consistent services to customers, and then worry about Apps, Digital Assistants and other tech-stuff. .My genuine advice to them--- You are dealing with patient healthcare services, where patient family is relying on you. This is not a courier service business where you are sending people to move boxes and you would't care much when service is delayed !!

  • review rating 2  My father had a hip bone surgery in January. I have been using Care24 services ever since. The attendants that cane were good in the beginning. However their services have become good to bad to worse to worst in the last 15 days. They changed the night attendant without informing me personally just 6 hours before the time. My father had just settled down with the last attendant and now they were sending a replacement tonight. To add to my frustration the guy didn’t turn up and did not answer the calls. When I called their call centre - they said they can’t help me at this hour. Well- I can’t help but call them CARELESS CARE24.

  • review rating 1  If there was an option of negative stars then I would have choosen it. They offered me a package of₹ 5950/- for 10 days and after 2 days updated me on new package of ₹5700/- for 7 days without my consent. Even deposited my earlier cheque and then I had to follow up for the balance for about 10 days explaining my issue everyday to the new person on their helpline. They don't acknowledge emails too. Worst experience and definitely not recommended
