I interviewed this provider

I am the medical directive of a Home Instead client who has been unable to have a deposit returned after he was unable to use their services. Many calls and requests have been ignored.

Provider Response

I appreciate your concern and care for our client. I did receive two messages from you and returned each one. Unfortunately we weren’t able to connect, and both times I had to leave a message. Before you and I could connect, our client phoned to inform us he would no longer be needing our services because of a change in his care needs. He asked that I return his deposit, less any outstanding amount due. The check was sent to him the following day. If you believe there is an outstanding issue, please feel free to call my office. I again thank you for your obvious care and concern; our client is lucky to have you on his care team.

I am a past client of this provider

I used this agency to provide in-home care services for 95 yr. old father with advanced Alzheimers, so I could get a break from 24/7 caring. When I put in a request online, they called back within the hour and arranged for rep to meet me later that same day. Home Instead provided me with an indepth overview of their company and services, they listened to me--what I wanted and expected from a caregiver, and then arranged for the most wonderful caregiving companion for my dad. Wish I had found this agency and this caregiver 2 1/2 years sooner. Their caregivers receive on-going, in-house training. The caregiver I had just knew how to interact with my dad, and when I left the house, I could be worry-free knowing that my dad was in good hands and would be well taken care of.
