I am a current client of this provider
I was referred to Home Instead by a family member. They’re outstanding. I had a personal interview with the team coordinator and the owner of the company. I like their price and minimum hours. They have met their obligations based on our agreement. At the end of the billing cycle, they invoice me by email. I like the flexibility and lack of contract, but the minimum hours is what’s really impressive.

We depend on the local office for occasional "respite" care for mom when we're out of town or working. Mom lives in a retirement community and loves their companion service.

I like Home Instead Senior Care because its affordable and I like their contract visits. We are using them for three months now. The caregiver is very proficient, caring and professional in every way and she's doing really well. We are using her three days a week in the afternoon as companionship for my spouse just to give me some time off. They are very well together and she's very patient in her activities. They are very good and we hope to continue using them.
