I am a current client of this provider

I'm kind of neutral with Home Instead Senior Care - Santa Clarita. We've had two caretakers who were very good, but they replaced them; I don't know why. I wasn't as happy with the new one. She was not very comfortable dealing with someone with Alzheimer's. She would come in and fall asleep on the couch. I was not happy with that. I think they need to be more assertive in monitoring what the healthcare workers are doing and maybe create a plan for specific patients because I know when I met with the area director, she said they would take my husband to the center. It all sounded great, but it didn't really happen, and it was more like sitting in front of the TV all day.

Home Instead Senior Care was a very professional organization. They were a very hands-on company. They really took good care of their caregivers and they provided continuing education for them. They made sure that their caregivers knew what they were doing in the situation. The caregivers were really committed to my mom in providing excellent care.

The response from Home Instead was really good. But we only had the caregiver for a couple of days, because dad became too aggressive towards her. He has Alzheimer's. He's confused. But as far as I know the caregiver was okay and I think my mom was comfortable enough. They very nice, and they still call mom just to see how things are going.
