Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Sherman Oaks, CA
They feel like family to me. December 29, 2016
I am a past client of this provider
I felt compelled to write a review for Home Instead because I have been very, very happy with the caregiver they have chosen for me. I've been through a couple of surgeries and needed someone to assist me & Home Instead has been by my side every step of the way. They are very well trained, caring & sensitive to your needs. They feel like family to me. I cannot thank them enough.

For me personally, finding someone to take care of my Mother as I focused on my career has benefit me tremendously & I no longer feel guilty for not being around to support her. I couldn't do this without the help of Home Instead's caregiver services. They found a couple GREAT caregivers that my Mother is very impressed with, as am I. The peace of mind I have knowing she is well-taken care of when I'm not around makes it worth every penny.

My grandpa loves Home Instead Sherman Oaks. I found this company awhile back and we've been very satisfied for over a year now. When it comes to home care services for elderly or seniors, you need to find a company that makes an effort to find appropriate caregivers that mesh well. Home Instead understands this, which is why I've already recommended to them to a few buddies of mine who are starting the process of finding a company that can take care of his aging parents.
