    Household chores - Cleaning dishes, moping floors, vacuum, change bedroom sheets, fix meals, and dust. The caregivers arrived on time and the agency keeps us inform of updates to the schedule.

    Home Instead has provided 24/7 care for one or both of my parents in their independent living apartment in a retirement community since August 2020. Every caregiver that has ever been sent to take care of Mother (and Daddy before he died), even the rare substitutes, seem really caring and competent! They arrive on time. They provide helpful feedback on changes they observe happening in their clients' conditions and suggest improvements when needed. They are not reluctant to try to do new things I ask them to do to help out. In recent months there have been almost no times that I have had to be the caregiver myself unexpectedly. The ladies in billing have also been very patient and helpful in working with our long term care insurance! I have no thoughts of changing providers!

    From the initial in home review and quote process to having safe, secure and compassionate care givers arrive their process was calming, efficient and complete. They make themselves available for questions & are knowledgeable of other programs and even help with equipment needs. They are a well run team of caring individuals and will go the extra mile while taking care of their clients/patience.

    We have been very pleased with caregivers for my Mom being as consistent as possible. They are interested in her needs and doing anything that needs to be done. Communication has been very prompt and thorough and has met our expectations and been reassuring. Thank you.

    Home Instead has taken a huge burden off my plate since both my parents moved in with me unexpectedly 3 months ago. The scheduling staff has made sure I had sitters to cover all shifts needed, even if the office staff had to come out, and the care givers they've matched my parents with have all been kind, caring, and compassionate.

    Had to tell the workers EVERY time one came out what needed to be done. Sometimes they would ask my mother who has dementia instead of referring to the plan which was not accurate so Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, I would have to tell the Caregiver what was expected because it was not accurately written down nor did most of the Caregivers follow it. There was only ONE who competently did her work. There seemed to always an issue. Never had consistency.

    My mother is very pleased with her caregiver's care. She is very insightful to my mother's needs and very caring. She is professional yet personable. Having someone come to our home once a week has given me the break I need from daily caregiving. This service is very afforadable for a medium to low income client.

    Home Instead was the perfect solution to assist my mother as her Alzheimer’s symptoms have progressed. They were able to get us on board and assign her a caregiver within 24 hours of my initial call. My mother benefited from well-trained, trustworthy staff, and their commitment to her quality of life was evident from the start. They assisted her with everyday activities in a caring, compassionate manner. I could not have been more pleased with the caregivers themselves or with the agency overall. Thanks to Home Instead for helping her and me when we needed it the most.

    My Father has been using Home instead for about 6 years now and our whole family has been very disappointed with the company. out of all those years he has had one care giver that was wonderful., but sadly (for us) she moved on to a better paying job. Since then he has had a variety of care givers, Some just don't show up for work, some cook, some don't, my Dad has a nice SUV and one girl refused to drive it, he had to ride in her car, that was full of junk. My dad is a perfectionist and has been all his life, he is 91 now and deserves it to be his way. Thank you for listening.

    We needed a companion for my wife who has some health issues. We chose Home Instead to provide this service. We have a wonderful caregiver whom my wife took to from the first day she came to us. She is wonderful with my wife and never gets frustrated with a sometimes demanding elder. Home Instead is very flexible and when I had to go out of town, they were able to provide caregivers for 24/7 companionship for my wife. We are extremely satisfied with Home Instead and their employees.

    We used Home Instead for my grandmother when she was on hospice. Having a trained caregiver was so helpful to us during her final days. The care she received was exceptional.

    Excellent service from coordinators, and once time is allowed for finding the right fit for a caregivers to be provided, it can be seemless. I've used them over a year and a half, and they've become an extension to our own family. Best wishes to all out there looking.
