I am a current client of this provider
I am using Home Instead. The caregivers come in the morning and in the evening to help me in and out of the bed. They help me do the laundry and anything else that I decide I need. I have been using them for three weeks. I have multiple caregivers, and each one of them is willing to do anything. None of them have idle time. They always want to do something. They are very careful with what they do, and they go extra miles for me. I am well-adjusted with them. I chose it because the girl that comes out to talk to me about it is very thorough in what they can and can’t do.

Home Instead caregivers were professional, courteous and all around wonderful to my husband in his final days. He enjoyed each of them. Thank you so much!

I’m using Home Instead a couple of days a week. For one thing, I liked the social worker that came out and talked to me. I was in rehab, and she followed up with a call and came out the day I came home. They mostly just help me with my house and cooking, shopping, and taking me to the doctor because I had home health coming in until last week. I like my caregiver a lot. We’re very compatible, and she’s not pushy or anything. She usually just asks what I want to have done and does it. The scheduling had been good.
