I am a current client of this provider
It took us just one day to get a caregiver from Home Instead Senior Care, and they have been very good. The caregiver prepares breakfast, does the dishes, and basically helps my mom prepare for adult day care and takes her to the day care. So far, they have just been very caring, courteous, and friendly with my mom. They were the only agency that could provide consistent transportation to the day care for my mom.

Home Instead is very professional. Management and overall service are very good. They are a good match for mom, and they have enough staff.

I interviewed this provider
We were very pleased with the home care worker who assisted us in caring for my wife, before it was necessary to relocate my wife to a care home. The worker whatever was needed, and with a very cheerful manner. This despite the fact that my wife was quite demanding, in that she was uncomfortable and unable to stay in one place for any length of time. We originally had the worker come during the weekends, but eventually added late afternoons on weekdays, as my daughter and I were burning out with caregiving. Our worker accommodated to our increasing care needs, for which we were most appreciative. We especially liked the fact that the worker showed genuine interest in talking to my wife about all sorts of things, and we felt these conversations had a positive impact on my wife's well being. All on all, our home care worker deserved a five star rating!
