Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Manhattan, NY

I am a current client of this provider
Home Instead has provided 24-hour live-in home care to my relative for the past five years. I have found them to be accessible and reliable. I especially appreciate the fact that the owner gives clients his cell-phone number and can be reached directly. The office staff is friendly and helpful. On the few occasions that I called them to request a change in health aide because of a "bad fit" with my relative, it was done readily and quickly. My relative now has had the same wonderful, dedicated primary aide for about three and a half years. Not only does she provide excellent physical care, but she has helped create a life for my relative by taking her out in her wheelchair into the community where she can interact with kids and enjoy some of the free public sites and events that Manhattan has to offer. Home instead has definitely improved the quality of my relative's life, and of mine as the overseer of her care.
