We were able to use the services of Home Instead Senior Care for seven days for my husband. My husband was very comfortable with the caregivers. They helped feed him, turn him in for bed, and clean him up. They were able to accommodate my need for the short period I had them as I had a special occasion that required someone staying longer than normal. I ended up having one lady for 10 hours one day. She had been forewarned that it might be happening. They were very kind and caring. In fact, I have recommended them to others.

Home Instead came once. The lady they sent did not jive with my husband at all; it was not a good mix.

We are pleased with our home aide. She is efficient, knowledgeable and has a sense of humor. She is very good with us and communicative. Home Instead is very nice to deal with and very responsive. It is a very efficient and compassionate group of people who are very responsive to the individual needs of a family.
