Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Las Cruces, NM

I am a current client of this provider
Home Instead is always available to discuss concerns, work with me and my parents, as well as with my daughter - as we both attempt to provide caregiving services to my 92 year old parents. Without Home Instead, and particularly Marianna and her wonderful skills, we would be lost. They truly help families that want to stay "home instead."

I am a past client of this provider
I used Home Instead for my husband before he passed away and I was very pleased with them. They were wonderful. We started using them in August. They came out to my house and interviewed me. They also asked me questions about my husband before I started their service. I had a caregiver come in for four hours while I was at work and I had them for companionship for my husband. They also helped him with his lunch, made sure that he took his meds on time and assisted him in the bathroom. I'm 100% satisfied with their services. I worked in this profession also and I was very pleased with them. They came to see me the day that my husband went into the hospice unit. They're just great people. Even one of the caregivers came to his funeral.
