We used this service for parent who moved in with my husband and I so he would not have to be in a nursing home. We had caregivers 3 days a week and 2 Saturdays a month for about 3 years, plus extra shifts when needed. Since we work full time, we would not have been able to care for him without help. In the last months before parent passed, increased service to 5 days a week, then added 10 pm to 6 am shift 7 days a week. Staff was professional and compassionate. Caregivers were reliable, skilled, friendly, and developed excellent relationship with parent.

We've been with Home Instead for a few weeks and they are good at what they do. When I was looking around for agencies, the qualifications of Home Instead were posted on their website and it got my attention. Also the fact that they called me back within 24 hours and sent me information via email were primary reasons why I hired them for my parents. I like their website by the way. It was very informative and helpful during my search. The services we got were primarily for companionship and driving. There's also a little bit of housekeeping but very minimal. They send in just same person which is good. The lady comes 2 half days a week, 4 hours each day so a total of 8 hours a week. At this stage in her life, I'm not sure my mother would be happy with anybody around her but for the most part, I know she has no complaints towards the caregiver.

Home Instead did an excellent job. They helped us get organized with things concerning my father-in-law and his wife. They went beyond the call of duty to help us.
