Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - San Diego, CA | San Diego, CA

My mother had a fall and ended up in skilled nursing care. Trouble is all of her kids and relatives live far away. A big issue is what were we going to do when she healed and was ready to go back home? We knew we would need caregivers...perhaps 24/7 when mom first got home. We contacted Home Instead and they were incredible. So easy to deal with. So supportive. Ready to do whatever it took to ensure mom was well cared for and safe. It was a no-brainer to realize this is a top notch organization run by caring and very responsible people. However in the end rather than return home, my mom moved back east to live with my sister so we never actually hired Home Instead to provide caregiver services.

I am a current client of this provider
I am so relieved to have found the perfect company and Care Giver for my 93 year old mom. Home Instead Senior Care has turned out to be just what we need at this point in time. Mom’s Care Giver is a perfect match for what I want in a Care Giver and she is a perfect match for mom’s personality and needs. It also is a great feeling knowing as our needs change, they offer a host of services and are supportive along the way. I am very impressed with the professionalism, timeliness and countless opportunities they share regarding learning for family caregivers, activities, support groups and reading resources. Tom and DeDe run a uniquely special company with much heart, understanding, warmth and skill. I highly recommend Home Instead Senior Care for anyone who wants to keep their loved one at home.
