I am a past client of this provider

Choosing a service was overwhelming. I needed help with my mother living at home with me and I did not know where to turn. I was given several names of companies and after a couple weeks of research I first chose a cheaper company giving me exactly what I was paying for and I switched to Home Instead within a month. Home Instead did exactly what they agreed to do. I was so impressed with mom's caregiver. She always seemed to know what mom needed and tended to those needs as if she were her own mom. We used Home Instead for nine months and probably met 6 caregivers from Home Instead. They were all very attentive and I was comfortable with everyone that came to our house. I must also mention the attention staff gave to making sure I was aware of mom's well being. I am grateful for everything Home Instead did for me and for the loving care they gave my mom.

I have had this agency for some time. The care givers either don't want to work even at light house keeping or the agency tells them they don't have to do things that I consider light housekeeping. I just found out on Wednesday last week the caregivers do NOT have to clean bathtubs, sinks or commodes. I am disappointed in this agency. I thought that light house keeping included those chores as well as dusting, vacumming, mopping and occassionally going to the grocery with you..especially the ones of us that are disabled.
