Reviews of Home Instead Senior Care - Sioux City, IA
Vicki 018201 November 01, 2016
I am a past client of this provider
The Home Instead team provided in-home care followed by extra support in assisted living for my aunt for four years. During that time, the staff was consistent with no change in personnel which was very important to my aunt. I found the staff to be very engaged and responsive on all matters related to my aunt's care. They performed all duties with high competency. In addition, I was amazed at the level of true concern and care the caregivers had for my aunt. My aunt moved 100 miles away to a memory care unit, and her caregivers stayed in touch until her death. Home Instead was more than just a team that provided services for my aunt. They became friends to my aunt and a part of our family.
