I am a current client of this provider
Home Instead Senior Care-New Albany seems to be doing good. They help my wife with bathing, getting dressed, and cooking supper. They clean the home and make the bed when they need to. They had some mix up with the scheduling one time, but other than that, there was no problem.

I visited this facility
This agency was very helpful on the phone and in person. I found them to be very kind, compassionate and really interested in helping to take care of my mother's needs. They really listened to both my mother and I to make sure they could provide the best service. I'isha was very professional on her home visit, and I loved the way she handled my mom who was very nervous about the whole process. Ultimately, we did not go with them because we decided that assisted living was the best choice for my mom, but I appreciate them and would not hesitate to employ them had the situation been otherwise.
