We have had a positive experience. Your company is good to call and check on your employees. Also you try to fit the worker most complimentary to my Mom.

Home Instead (Abilene), has been a godsend for me and my parents. I absolutely do not know what we would have done without them. The owner, office staff and caregivers have gone above and beyond to look after my folks like they were family. I cannot say enough good things about all of them.
I am my parents only surviving family, and I live 350 miles away. Home Instead has taken a huge load off of my mind, and have allowed my mom and dad to stay where they most want to be...in their own home.
When I give thanks for my blessings, Home Instead is always on my list.

Management and assigned companion were responsive, flexible, so helpful. My Mom loves the dear lady who was matched up with Mom by manager who visited our home to determine what and who we needed. worth it.
