Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Bryan, TX

I am a current client of this provider
Home Instead Senior Care is very timely, and they are always early which is very helpful to us. It is a problem we had with our last group because sometimes they didn't show up or they showed up late. That is the one thing they promised, they haven't missed any time, and they are always on time or early. They are courteous, nice, and seemed well trained. We don't have an extreme care situation because my father needs help getting dressed and different things depending on what time they are here. Everyone has worked well. I had a variety of people come, but all were very courteous and seem very well qualified to do the work. I don't ask them to do a lot of work -- just someone who pays attention to him, helps him with what he needs, and be a companion for him when we are away -- but they are willing to do anything I ask. One time I had a last minute problem, and they were able to help me within an hour or two when I needed someone to come. They responded very well when I needed someone. It has worked out very well.
