Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Austin, TX
Average Rating: based on 1 Review
Many clients, at times, need support in their home to handle all the activities involved in daily living. When this need arose, for people in the Austin, Tx & surrounding area, I often referred them to Home Instead Senior Care.
Feedback from clients, regarding agency's services & caregiver staff, has all been positive. Many expressed much praise for the caregivers. One client said: "This group of helpers (caregiver staff) are the friendliest & hardiest workers I have ever seen, will do anything I need done & always smiling no matter what. They make my day, I don't worry anymore."
Most of the other client's comments were similar to the one above. It appears obvious that this support agency has a staff that goes above and beyond to provide superior assistance to their clients, which helps them with daily living tasks, makes life more enjoyable & enables them to remain in their home.
