I am a past client of this provider
Home Instead Senior Care provided my husband with an aide who helped him with personal care, meals, and some housecleaning. The agency was wonderful and very easy to work with. We didn't have any problems. I would highly recommend this agency to anybody because they did such a great job. We used them for eight weeks and chose them because they were the most receptive among all that I called. The very next day, we had help come in. We were very pleased. They had high-quality employees there, and I felt very safe with them in my home. Their owner definitely personalizes the care they provide in a home. She knows the questions to ask, makes status calls, and stays in contact with you so she knows what's going on. I could not ask for anything more than that. They provided top-quality care. The caregivers didn't ignore my husband when there was nothing else to do. They would have conversations. He felt that he was not being treated as just a patient.

Our experience with Home Instead was a little up and down. Some of their caregivers were very good, and others were not that good. They are also a little bit expensive. They would interview the clients before you hire them and I think that's pretty good. All in all I was fairly satisfied with them except they were just too expensive.

Thank you so much for taking such good care of my mother. I had been so stressed at work worrying about her but now I don't have to worry about her. Sometimes I think she likes her care giver more than me. I am more then pleased!
