Home Instead is a good company, something that is very needed. It's good service to have. I enjoyed signing up my granny. Very pleasant and personable. I myself am a social worker and I know how much good the company does out in the community.

My Father has been using Home instead for about 6 years now and our whole family has been very disappointed with the company. out of all those years he has had one care giver that was wonderful., but sadly (for us) she moved on to a better paying job. Since then he has had a variety of care givers, Some just don't show up for work, some cook, some don't, my Dad has a nice SUV and one girl refused to drive it, he had to ride in her car, that was full of junk. My dad is a perfectionist and has been all his life, he is 91 now and deserves it to be his way. Thank you for listening.

We have a wonderful caregiver who is perfect in every way. We have had 3 different caregivers with Home Instead, all of them have been good, but the one we have now is perfectly suited to care for my Mom.

We had the same caregiver for the last 8 years of service with Home Instead Senior Care. The staff was helpful and always listens. Our caregiver was like family and we are so thankful to have had her.

I attend workshops for CEU's. Topic subjects are very helpful and Julie Smith and her associates are courteous and helpful to their patient. My sister-in-law was a cancer patient and the Home Instead caretakers were very caring, professional and kind and helped my sister-in-law maintained dignity. I encourage friends to use your services and they do. I am an R.N.

I work with Home Instead on a professional and personal level. I'm happy to say I highly recommend them to patients and families and I use them for my own. Wouldn't have anyone else to take care of my mom.

I have the greatest confidence in this agency. They are meticulous and thorough. My mother who had severe vascular dementia received excellent care from them.

Home Instead provided someone to sit with one of my patients. I would like to acknowledge Devan for giving excellent care to my patient. She worked well with him and kept him engaged. Good job!

Mom's caregivers come from Home Instead Senior Care and everybody is doing a great job. Their personalities seem to match very well. She's very happy with it and I like the proximity of their office to mother's address. I would recommend them to others.

We needed a companion for my wife who has some health issues. We chose Home Instead to provide this service. We have a wonderful caregiver whom my wife took to from the first day she came to us. She is wonderful with my wife and never gets frustrated with a sometimes demanding elder. Home Instead is very flexible and when I had to go out of town, they were able to provide caregivers for 24/7 companionship for my wife. We are extremely satisfied with Home Instead and their employees.

I interviewed this provider

THe first lady they sent was ok for mom. They soon sent random seemingly untrained people

Exceptional service to provide 24hour care for my mother. Dedicated to meeting the individual needs of the client and their family. Caregivers they provide are well trained, high quality people who have met all our expectations in providing in-home care for my mother.

We used Home Instead for my grandmother when she was on hospice. Having a trained caregiver was so helpful to us during her final days. The care she received was exceptional.

Home instead has been the best in-home care center we have used. The employees are great. Our current care giver, Vanessa, has been a God-Send. She is like family.

Excellent service from coordinators, and once time is allowed for finding the right fit for a caregivers to be provided, it can be seemless. I've used them over a year and a half, and they've become an extension to our own family. Best wishes to all out there looking.
