We’re using Home Instead now. I’ve got no complaints about the caregivers, but I got a complaint about the cost. I have a sitter that comes 2 days a week, and I pay them every 2 weeks. It’s $550 a week. That’s almost $2500 a month. I can get an assisted living facility for 30 days for almost the same cost, and I get more benefit than what I’m getting from the caretaker. She’s a good caretaker -- I’m not arguing that -- but I would come out cheaper in the long run with an assisted living facility. That’s the only complaint I have. It’s the cost. The caregiver does a good job. She’s on time, and she is willing to do most anything. I hired them because I didn’t have a choice. I got no complaints about the service, just the cost.

Home Instead Senior Care provided good service, but it was too expensive. They were good caregivers who sat with my son and gave him medicine when he needed it. I would recommend them because they were punctual and did what I wanted them to do.

We did hire Home Instead, and the caregiver comes in once or twice a week and stays with us for a few hours each day. We were satisfied with the care.
