I am happy with my 2 caregivers now. My husband is also and they're taking care of him very good. I'm hoping CG Tony is available and would love to have him back. Excellent service.

Home Instead cost higher than the other agency. We only had them for two months. Also unlike the agency we have now, it was not that easy to terminate Home Instead's service with us; we had to give them a month's notice. Sometimes you don't have that. Nevertheless, the caregiver we had from them was very good. She also seemed to be very willing to work. Unlike the caregiver that my mother has now, this one wasn't talking on the phone a lot. The only thing though is that she was very young and we didn't know how much experience she had. However, she was very strong and had energy. She was also kind to my mother. My mother in turn liked her.
