Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Clarksville, TN

I interviewed this provider
We have always used a private caregiver that we've had for 12 years and still do - but then we needed to go to 24/7 for the purposes of safety and assistance. We tried finding another private caregiver, because it would be more cost effective but that was a long an arduous task and the results were devastating. We had just been lucky and blessed the first time. I decided to investigate all of the local home care agency providers and Home Instead led the pack by far! Price, caring attitude, knowlegeable about my loved one's needs, etc. They delivered what they promised! No surprises! The office staff and the caregivers themselves have been very professional and caring individuals. They have made my life manageable! If somoeone is sick, THEY find the replacement. I don't have to rearrange my schedule to cover like I've done in the past. It takes the headache out of it and puts the joy back in it! I would recommend them in a heartbeat! Don't waste another second searching - stop here! Trust me, I'm not that easy to please and I highly recommend this agency!
