Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Northborough, MA
Average Rating: based on 2 Reviews
I am a current client of this provider
One of my colleague recommended Home Instead Senior Care. The first person they sent did not work out with my mom. The second one was better. She was enthusiastic, experienced and worked well with older people. I was happy with the care she got. She helped my mom with the dishes, cleaned her nails and even did the laundry. She kept my mom's things tidy. She was a really good match to my mother.
My loved one used this service
My mother used this service for 5 years. One year was at a FL office the other years was at the Northborough office. The office staff was always helpful, professional and responsive. The ladies who work with my mother were loving, professional and very reliable. We were able to have the same staff which was very helpful as my mom's memory continued to fail. I am a real fan of this company and the ladies who worked with my mom.
