It’s Ok To Complain – Your Feedback is Important

Have you ever been unhappy with a product or service and decided not to say anything? It’s natural for most people to feel a little uncomfortable when providing feedback, especially negative feedback. At Simply Helping, we like to hear about your experience. We view all complaints and suggestions as opportunities to improve. If you have concerns about any aspect of our service, please let us know. If you are especially pleased with any aspect of our service, we would love to hear about that too. We continually strive to provide the best in-home care service available. Your feedback is an important part of our ongoing improvement.

We welcome all feedback and want you to feel comfortable if you have a complaint. Complaints will be addressed fairly and promptly as we seek the right outcome with your best interest at heart.  Did you know that we maintain a register of comments, suggestions, compliments and complaints? We also maintain a separate and secure file for confidential complaints, so your privacy is protected. Rest assured that all complaints are recorded, and each outcome is reviewed for its effectiveness.
