I am a past client of this provider
I used Home Instead for three weeks for my mom. They were wonderful! The person that came out to do the initial interview was very nice and informative. She also wasn't pushy. At that time, we just needed them to help my mom for three weeks. It was a temporary thing. The girl they sent us was very nice. She helped my mother get washed and dressed and my mother really liked her. They can do a lot for you. This was our choice because, frankly, they were the first ones to call me back promptly and I needed someone right away. They're the first one that got back to me.
