Home Instead is always ready to accommodate us, and your scheduling has been perfect, and communication excellent. The three helpers from Home Instead are superb. They're always cheerful, considerate, and willing to tackle any task we might ask them to do. Not only that, but they are quite observant and voluntarily tackle anything that they think needs their attention.

All of the services of Home Instead and all of their caregivers were excellent. I chose them because I just liked when I spoke to them, what they offered, and everything. I have had several caregivers because of different hours of the day, but all of them have been very attentive. I have nothing but good experiences with them. They are very cooperative. I have no problems at all.

So far the caregiver that Home Instead Senior Care gave us has been great. My grandmother needs too much help at this point and she's been really nice. She took the time to know my grandmother like talking to her and make sure she's comfortable. We've been using them for a couple of weeks now.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Professional and had all the bases covered when I inquired about in home help for my mom. Caregivers were accountable and honest. I have only used Home Instead for a few months but feel that it has made a difference in my mom's disposition. She fights the idea but seems to get along fine with caregiver and is in a better mood that day when I talk with her after work.
