We have used Home Instead for 5 years for my mother and have recommended their services many time. We find the staff efficient in communication and the caregivers are prompt and take excellent care of my mother.

Honest Instead, Greenwood, IN is a outstanding company. They provide senior care to seniors in need. Home Instead came into a dysfunctional home. The Home Instead personnel organized the home and continue providing order, peace and hope to the senior residents. The caregivers are always pleasant, friendly, completing all tasks in a professional manner. They demonstrate integrity, patience and awareness of the needs of the two patients involved.

Some caregivers are always punctual but others aren't dependable to be here on time and leave early without notification. Some caregivers show special attention to male patient over spouse. This has caused jealousy that results in behavioral issues and toileting accidents for elderly woman. Most caregivers are awesome and get along well with everyone in the home. However some do not respect or work well with the private caregivers we had before they were hired.
