Communication with Home Instead is excellent. I am kept informed of the caregivers' schedule. Most of the caregivers from Home Instead are competent!

Home Instead Senior Care responded quickly, and they were able to deal with my unique circumstances. The person who came in was very sweet and loving with my mother. She was on time and prompt. She followed through, checked in ahead of time to confirm, and she took good care of my mother. The agency followed up before and afterwards. Everybody, the agency and her, were able to customize for our needs. The scheduling and billing were excellent.

I saw Home Instead on the internet, and they were the only one that responded to me. I was travelling down to New Orleans with my mother for a wedding, and I wanted to find somebody to help us for that period. They were able to help me out, and they were very helpful. They have excellent caregivers. They are very warm to my mother and very thorough. They were excellent beforehand, and a lot of the information was given. They had good follow up, I received accurate billing, and everything was great.
