Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Chapel Hill, NC

I am a current client of this provider
We left messages at 4 home care agencies in the area on a Saturday afternoon when we realized we needed an aide to stay w/ our elderly father who was recovering from pneumonia. Home Instead immediately returned my call - 2 others never returned our call and one did so on Monday AM. Both a supervisor and an aide arrived on time Monday AM as scheduled. The aide, Anne, was excellent in caring for our dad, who did not want an aide to stay with him for the 2 days. Both the next door neighbor and the UNC RN (both stopped by) called to tell my how great Anne was with our dad. She helped him with meals, picked up around the house, even walked the dog (she's also a professional dog walker). We were very grateful for their help!!

Home Instead's caregivers become one of the family. Highly recommend this agency for help with an aging parent or family member.
