We chose to have Home Instead Senior Care of Kennebunk and we're very pleased with them. We did find a great in-home-care service a month or so ago. It's for my dad. So far, the woman who's in charge taking care of him is really great. When the woman couldn't come on her schedule, the head woman came instead. They've been really helpful and very supportive. We did not wait too long to find him a caregiver. It's only like a week. We had a meeting with them Monday, and then the person who's taking care of my dad came Friday. He's comfortable with his caregiver. They've been really nurturing and attentive. We are really satisfied with their service.
