I am a past client of this provider
You should feel very comfortable hiring this firm. If your parent(s) need help this is the way to go; a real firm with management support/backup. Don't hesitate to e-mail for specifics, I will call you

I have been utilizing Home Instead Senior Care for over a year now; the admin staff are great, they answer the phone any time day or night! They do a wonderful job at being consistent with the ladies they send me, and any time I have an issue (so far there's only been one) I know I can call Colin and he will figure out how to fix it right away. I would not be at home right now without them.

Home Instead Senior Care was definitely a help in the past months with my families little to no knowledge of how to care for my grandma. It boils down to the fact that money has been tight and their services were and still are the best that we can afford and then some. Yes there has been a few small problems that have arose here and their. With one of the nurses saying that we should take her on more walks, and my Mom telling her that she did not believe it was a good idea. Yet in recolection they are just doing what they are trained to do. Home Instead Senior Care helped my family get back on track with her health, and without them I don't know how the care of life my grandma is recieving would have been.
