The staff at Home Instead of Palos Height, IL were super to deal with. They really were concerned about the care of the client. I would definitely use them again if I can use their services. Thanks to all of You for your kindness, concern and help.

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.

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.
