Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Granville, OH
Our Extended Family April 26, 2015
I am a past client of this provider
All of you at Home Instead were so helpful, caring, and considerate. Home Instead enabled us to keep Dad at home during his declining health. You were in tune to our needs and made it all work very smoothly.
I can't say enough about the wonderful and caring people that go way beyond the meaning of Care Givers. They came into our home and became like extended family. I called our group of people the A-Team (as in Angels).
I will be forever grateful.

We have Home Instead, and they come in and help with my wife with some things. We chose them because we couldn't afford the live-in places. They are very professional and very wonderful. I like their attitude -- very professional and very helpful.
