Right now, I am just having in-home care from Home Instead. They do in-home visits about a couple of times a week, and it is just companionship really. They are very accommodating to my needs and my mom's needs -- very accommodating and very flexible. We are very happy with them. They explained everything upfront, and they have been very supportive.

Before, my husband needed more care than I could provide. I experienced the thoughtful, friendly staff at Home Instead office, and I felt their support and encouragement as I took steps to complete paperwork, ask questions, and be ready. The constant message was being there for us when we needed help. Eventually when help was needed, they knew my husband and provided caregivers well-matched to his personality and interests.

Home Instead found a wonderful aid for me when my husband was ill. Paul had pulmonary fibrosis. Home Instead helped us and stayed with us in the difficult journey of getting the benefits from our Long Term Care Policy. I have nothing for praise for the quality of help we got from Home Instead.

My sister was diagnosed with Pick's Disease and was living with my Mom. She loved to walk but couldn't walk alone as she would not remember how to get home. I called Home Instead to see if they could have someone walk with my sister three times a week. They were very caring with my sister and took her for long walks which she enjoyed very much. She became attached to her care givers. The staff and the owner at Home Instead in Novato, CA are excellent and very compassionate.

Home Instead staffing management approaches each client with a confident calm and matches the right caregivers with the needs of the client. The families face tough decisions and HI really takes placement of their caregivers personally.

This in-home care agency took on my mother's case, even though she was an extremely challenging patient. They spent a great deal of time understanding our needs as a family and working with us to come up with a plan that worked. They were extremely flexible and understanding. We had to warn them ahead of time that there would be days when she would not let the caregiver inside the house, and indeed that happened and they were very patient. The caregivers were skilled and kind. The service was reasonably priced; it was more expensive than it would have been for us to hire someone independently, but we had the security of agency management and a backup caregiver was available whenever needed.
