Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Hutchinson, KS
Judy Ontjes November 08, 2016
The ladies from Home Instead have been wonderful to my mother. They are kind, helpful, and willing to do whatever they can. They generally get dinner on the table for her, and they spend the night because Mom has fallen in the past and feels much more secure when someone is there with her in case she has to get up during the night. She has her favorite caregivers, of course, and enjoys their company.

Great customer service in every way! My parents enjoy their Home Instead caregivers very much. As the person that coordinates the care for my parents, my questions are always handled promptly with Home Instead-Hutchinson in regard to scheduling, insurance claims, etc.

We are using Home Instead for my parents. Within a few weeks, they were able to give us a caregiver match. I think initially the caregiver does more cleaning and shopping, but I think they are making some adjustments in what they are going to have her do. My parents are pretty independent and able to plan their day, mentally. So, they are making some adjustments in what they feel is the best use of time. I think she is taking care of the home, like helping to make the bed and things like that. We are satisfied. They have a lot in common in their backgrounds. I feel like there is a lot of common interest, and she is probably about the age of their older daughter. I think it has gone pretty smoothly.
