ACTi-Kare was a true-life saver for us. The respite facility my 91-year-old mom was in asked us to hire a sitter with no notice. The sitter gave much better care to my mom than the respite care facility and Ricky is a pleasure to work with. Flexible and knowledgeable!

I had the pleasure working for this company for a short time before I moved out of town. The owner Ricky Keller is very caring. He does a meet and greet with every new client and new caregiver for the first visit to ensure the right fit. He makes himself available anytime to staff, clients, as well as their family with any questions and concerns regarding client condition, care, environment, etc. He goes out of his way to keep family updated and notified of any client changes. In my 12 plus years’ experience working for home companies you rarely see the owner themselves get involved and hire and oversee their own care staff. If you are looking for amazing care for yourself or a loved one or a rewarding career as a caregiver, Ricky is the person to call.
