We have been using Home Instead Senior Care for a month and a half. Their service is great. I like the gal who comes to our house, and they return phone calls right away. The caregiver is very upbeat. She does whatever I ask her to do, like cooking, companionship, and bringing me to appointments. She comes on Tuesday and Thursday for four hours each day. She’s perfect, very approachable, and very easy to get along with. When you meet her, you immediately like her. I am very happy.

I have Home Instead. They were here yesterday and did a consultation. My husband has Parkinson's, so he needs assistance while I'm in the hospital. They will actually take him and me to a doctor's appointment. He can't drive and I can't drive after my surgery, so they are going to take care of that. They will also come in and make sure he takes his meds and help if he needs a meal cooked, has to have laundry done, make the bed, or whatever else he needs, except that they're not RNs or LPNs. He's cordial toward the caregivers, but he just doesn't want anyone here 24/7. They're fantastic.

My mother has dementia. I have been providing care and companionship (along with two of my siblings) for seven years. We would not have survived without the help of Home Instead. Their care allows us some peace of mind, as well as a much needed break from caregiving. Mom also can stay in her home, as was her wish when my father died.
