I am a past client of this provider
The lady that Home Instead Senior Care sent me would sit on the couch and do absolutely nothing the entire time she was here unless she was specifically asked to do something.
My wife’s best friend from Oklahoma came for 2 weeks, and I told Home Instead I didn’t need anybody for the next 2 weeks but when they send somebody back, to please make sure that they understand that I expect them to be somewhat occupied doing something while they’re here, and they said it was not a problem.
They sent back the same young lady who did exactly the same thing for another 4 hours and when she left, I called them and said, never mind. They did not provide any service other than what was requested. For $25 an hour, I didn’t expect them to sit here and watch TV.

Home Instead is a wonderful caring company. Without their help things would have been a mess. There is no other company out there that can provide the quality of care that Home Instead does.
