I am a friend or relative of a resident
My parents are the ones who decided to choose Home Instead Senior Care. I just did the research for them, and it seems to be a good match for them since they are happy about it. With regards to the care I think they are very nurturing and attentive and that's important. I'm glad to find this provider for them.

I am a past client of this provider
The caregivers took time to talk with my mother and found activities that she could participate in. Their attention was focused on my mother. They didn't just turn on the TV and sit there!!!!! When the scheduled caregiver was ill, I appreciated the fact that they found a replacement quickly and made sure I was happy with their choice.
The thing I appreciated at the very beginning was that I was able to interview the caregiver a day or two before she came to stay with my mother. That way I was more comfortable leaving my mother with a stranger.
