I am a current client of this provider
I struggled for years trying to find help for my brother who lives halfway across the country and was having increasing difficulty with living on his own. I remembered a talk given by a Home Instead representative in my own town. I called and got immediate relief and kind and intelligent help. Even with the difficulties in finding a suitable caregiver due to my loved one's extreme disabilities, the lovely person in charge persevered and ultimately found a team. She also suggested a fee for service case manager who has turned out to be a jewel, and has saved our lives and sanity. And that wonderful woman suggested a fiduciary who is another wonderful member of the team. And it all started with Home Instead.
I am a friend or relative of a resident
It was for one of our relatives. We chose Home Instead Senior Care because they are professional and really responsible. The best thing about them is that they are very clean and she really liked her home attendant. Everything is going perfectly. Her home attendant usually comes in everyday just to check if everything is okay. We did not wait that long to find this home attendant for her. We are really satisfied. It just felt right. I will surely recommend Home Instead Senior Care to others.
