I am a current client of this provider
I have caregivers from Home Instead now. It’s up to the agency to provide people, so if somebody can’t come, they provide somebody else. We don’t have one person. I think they are able to handle the work. So far, they are able to do it. They’ve had to find new people at the beginning of the day, but so far they have been able to bring people in, which is what we need. Maybe they need to improve on personal hygiene. They are strong and friendly. I think older people need to be able to reach the office of the caregivers on the phone because they don’t have computers or they don’t know how to communicate online, so I think it’s good to have several lines that they can call for several different reasons if they need to.
