I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident
I used Home Instead Senior Care for my mother. They provided 24-hour home care. They were like adult sitters. They did housekeeping and food preparation. We had them for 24 hours a day for 4 months, and they charged $20 an hour. They did a good job.
The billing was kind of weird. I wasn’t sure when I was paying or how much I was paying. Other than that, the people were great. They did whatever they were asked, and if we didn’t care for a certain person, we got a new one right away. The first day that I started the service, I was calling from the hospital because they were sending my mother home, and when we got home, there was somebody at the front door.

My neighbor used this company for her mother. They are very professional and knowledgeable . I was very impressed with the Caregiver as well as the management staff. Clearly a top drawer operation. I will use them for my dad when the time comes.
