Some Mainers who depend on home health care report their workers never showed up, while other grievances include physical, sexual and verbal abuse. The federal government and the state are trying to take care of the problems associated with home health care agencies. Details; information on some of the Portland-area home care companies cited by the state for alleged misconduct, including Interim Healthcare Services, Olsten Health Services, Assisted Home Care, Healthsouth, Admiral Home Care Services and Visiting Nurses Association..
