Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Modesto, CA
Ron Smith January 25, 2015
I am a past client of this provider
I recently had Home Instead care for my mother who was visiting Modesto, Ca. from Michigan. My mother is an 86 year old former cancer patient recovering from recent carpal tunnel surgery, and dealing with recently diagnosed spinal disease. She required help with everything (i.e., eating, walking, using restroom, etc.). The caregiver went above & beyond the call of duty by giving my mom a massage, making the bed, and via her sincere interactions with Mom. The caregiver also ran the dishwasher and put everything away in it's proper place. This was way more than expected. My mom was thrilled and told everyone back home how well she was treated. Additionally, the supervisor left a very nice plant, but my mother could not take it on her flight home. However, the supervisor sent an even nicer plant to my mom's home in Michigan. Obviously, Mom was stilled again. I would highly recommend Home Instead to anyone who has a similar need.
