Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Midland, TX

I am a past client of this provider
My mother had home care for almost three years. It was Home Instead that we used, and I would highly recommend them. My mother was very resistant to their care and their provision, but they worked well with me. We had one or two that really clashed with my mom, and they removed them and got new people in for me. I really enjoyed working with them. They worked so well with me and kept me informed; they were very good. The only concern I had with them was, sometimes, I needed more weekend service whenever I went out of town, and they only cover Monday through Friday, but they did cover day and night. They did work with a lot of people for that. They learned my mom, knew who she was, and worked really well trying to find a good match. I really appreciated that.
