Dad has been using Home Instead Senior Care for two years now. I am very pleased with the service they give to my father. They have been very good. They provide 24/7 home care. They assist him with meals, showering, and they also do some light housekeeping. They just basically do a lot of supervision because he has Alzheimer’s. Majority of the caregivers really care about my dad; they have a rapport with him. I really think they’re doing a good job. If there are any changes in the schedule, they always get in touch with me.
