A friend is dealing with the chronic illness of an elderly parent. Currently, insurance is paying for a home health aide to come in four hours a day during the week, but the family really needs to have some help on weekends, too.

They are looking for a private care agency to hire someone for a few hours during the weekend. Due to the insurance arrangement, they can't hire anyone from a city agency. We've been able to find lists of agencies in NYC, but would really appreciate personal recommendations or warnings about specific agencies, or other advice on hiring someone. They live on the Upper West Side.
