Home Instead always promptly responds to my requests with great courtesy. They do their very best to match an excellent caregiver with my relative.

We have a private caregiver that provides daily care for my mother (not thru Home Instead) but Home Instead has filled a vital service as emergency care for our family when our current caregiver has been unexpectedly made unavailable. Branden has always been so gracious and easy to work with. He has made being a distant caregiver (I live 5 hours away from my mother) so much better knowing that I have someone to turn to. The stress of "what do I do now" just melts away after I have spoken with him. I am so thankful that they are willing to take on these short stents while my current caregiver gets back on her feet.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
Home Instead got a really good group of people, and my parents really likes the lady that comes over. We decided to hire them as we really liked the personality of the lady who has interaction with my parents. She is very kind, efficient, knowledgeable, good at cooking, and helps with the housework. Billing and scheduling is great. It costs as much as assisted living place, but we don’t mind that as long as mom is well taken care of.

The caregivers from Home Instead were very personable. They stayed with me for two hours interviewing me to determine what my needs were. I've been working with them for about two months now.
