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.

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.
