The company is accommodating and individualized for each patient's unique needs. The company is committed to ensuring the right fit with client and caregiver. Compassion, Christian, trustworthy, caring, comforting and supportive. I felt I could leave my parents in capable hands. The stress and burden of caring for my loved one was eased. We all felt safe. They truly are the gold standard!

I tried several other agencies before I found Home Instead. I have never been happier -- dealing with the office and the caregivers has been a great experience. They are very professional and I have recommended them to many friends.

Susan, Terry and Robyn have all been wonderful! We are completely happy with Robyn. I promised my wife we wouldn't put her in a facility, but she never got well enough to come home. We loved Home Instead while she was at home.

Jerry was a chauffer, helper, took care of my walker, helped me shopping at Aces, he carried things for me when they got heavy, he was a careful driver, and I enjoyed his company.

The caregivers are very calm, soft voiced, efficient and willing to do whatever I ask. They do the laundry.

Sheila was just fabulous. She offered to do things without me even asking! She even went back home while I was see the doctor to get the flowers I had forgotten to bring to give to the doctor.

Robyn cares for my father, but when mother had a fall this past week, Robyn called me so I could take her to the hospital and have stitches put in. Robyn is very good. She helps with cleaning and is always asking what else she can do.

Whatever concerns arise in caring for my mother are always addressed together. They are always on top of everything...if one person couldn't get to it, it was usually the GM, and we got everything straightened out.

Pattie does a great job, and I would give her five stars, but we haven't had her here enough times to know if I would call her 'excellent.'. She is very kind and I enjoy her company.

My mom is using Home Instead. They do a pretty good job. I liked the little extras they do like paint my mom's fingernails and all the other fun things they do for her and they give her someone to talk to.

Some of their employees though aren't just that reliable. But the company itself is really good at replacing someone if that person can't make it that day to care for my mom. It would be nice though to get the same person every week, but right now they have a schedule for 3 different people for 5 days a week and even then some of those people can't make it so they replace them.

I visited this facility

I think that Home Instead Senior Care Services is an excellent choice for individuals that live independently and who prefer to live independently in the privacy of their own homes and that need some additional outside supportive care and assistance for themselves, a friend or a family member. They provide their clients with an array of supportive services and assistance. They provide their clients with personal care and assistance; dressing, grooming, bathing, medications assistance and reminders, meal preparation, transportation to medical appointments, shopping, housekeeping and laundry. Their services are tailored fitted to fit into their clients' individual needs. Their team of Skilled and trained Nurses evaluate and access their clients individual Plans of Care that is needed for them.

They encourage their clients' health and independence to their most maximum levels that is possible for them individually. They provide their clients with a safe and secured environment. Their staff is team and task oriented in their job duties and their job performances as well. They also provide an array of varied hours for their clients to fit their clients' individual needs and that is necessary for them. They provide short and long term visits and care for their clients from 2 hour a day to 24/7 a day on a daily basis. In general, I would have to rank Home Instead Senior Services on a five stars rating for their excellence and expertise in home care providers.
