My parent has home care now from Home Instead. It was one that was recommended by her primary doctor. We have been using them for about two months now. We're very pleased with the regular person that we have for her. She is fantastic. She would come in two days a week. She does light housekeeping and cooking. She would be there as a companion for my mother. However, with the holiday, there was a substitute who came in her place and she wasn't as good as the regular. We did let the company know though. Overall, the company is very good.

First rate service. We used Home Instead for my Mom. she had two different care givers both of whom she loved. They actually did a personality match to provide care givers who had shared interests with my Mom. She was a huge nature lover. The office staff was very helpful too and came out with the care givers for their first shift to do introductions and make sure my Mom had everything she needed. Zero complaints!
