How We Made A Difference

  • review rating 5  I got attendent for my ailing mother thru care 24. The best service i got...if i need infuture i will definitely go for care24 only...they are the best

  • review rating 1  Worst experience ever! Have hired a caregiver and a nurse. The nurse arrives late repeatedly inspite of being told about how critical medication timings are, falls asleep during day duty, is clueless about timings and medications inspite of us having guided them and has no sound medical knowledge whatsoever. She insisted that a fever of 99.7 is normal and even tried feeding the patient through riles tube with the patient lieing down inspite of there being a recliner arrangement. Neither the nurse or the attendant knew the correct way of lifting a patient from the bed, it was all ignorant tug and pull. Any complaints made to the organisation made no difference as they need more than a day to arrange for a replacement and one needs to deal with the same incompetent staff for another day or risk having no caregiver coming over (as bluntly informed by the call center) at all. Furtheron, the same performance continued the next day. In fact, in the absence of the family members it was observed through a baby monitor that the attendant and the nurse were sitting and chatting away while the patient was trying to sleep and literally PASSING FOOD OVER TO EACH OTHER OVER THE PATIENT! If this wasnt bad enough, the attendant developed a cough and a fever and when a call was made to care 24 asking them to send a replacement on the next day at least as the patient has low immunity, the organisation again gave a choice, we could have the same attendant and risk the patient getting sick, or have no attendant for the next day as they didn't have anyone available. Do not fall for the sales pitch of the executives over the phone as their premium prices and promises of exceptionally well trained staff is nothing but marketing mumbo jumbo. The professionalism and training of the staff that comes to your door is as garbage as the service of the organisation. More importantly, do not trust this organisation with the health and well being of your loved ones as no one in the entire heirarchy of care 24 really 'cares'. You would be better off hiring someone from a local agency. Have had much better experiences with randomly contacted nurses and attendants through justdial. Even though they live far, they reach on time The local organisations are also promptly able to provide replacements if need be. P.S. The 1000 or so rupees registration charge they take from you initially, is essentially a financial clickbait as its money they've made off you after they have stressed you out, contributed to deterioration of the patient and compelled you to suspend their services.

  • 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

  • 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.
