Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Sandwich, MA

I am a friend or relative of a resident
Our family uses Home Instead to provide companion care for our 93 year old mother. Mom receives care 3 hours per day, 7 days a week. Mom loves her caregivers Robin and Gail. We couldn't be happier.

I interviewed this provider
My fellow citizens, I am a private caregiver/ manager for an elderly lady with dementia and was in search for much needed help. I interview with different agencies within the Cape cod area asking many questions regarding competence, studies, or courses taken, compassion, reliability, trustworthy, team player, loyalty, and a passion for caring for the elderly. I found Home Instead was able to tend to our needs, set up a care plan asking the clients input as well, and provided matching personality needs. In the event of any bumps, Home Instead worked very well in providing a solution in a quickly fashion. I highly recommend this group.
