Home Care Reviews for Home Instead Senior Care - Union City, CA

I am a past client of this provider

Hired Home Instead Senior Care for my father and mother. Shannon, the owner, worked hard for us to find the right fit. It was our first time and my parents were reluctant. We did have some stumbles with caregivers that were well meaning, but didn't fit our family. But eventually they gave us three who my dad relied on and looked forward to seeing. Monica, Ripal and Arafeh were wonderful with us and have become friends. Our caregiver was there when my dad passed away. They came to his funeral as did Shannon. They became part of the family and showed that they really cared about us. I took away one star, because not every match was a great one. But the whole team tried to make it right. They were flexible to our schedule needs, and the owner takes the relationship personally.

My mother passed away in January and I live two hours away from my 92-year-old dad. While he is in pretty good physical and mental health, he doesn't cook and isn't used to basic housekeeping. He reluctantly agreed to try having Kim Q., a caregiver from Home Instead, come to his home four mornings a week for a one month "trial" to clean, cook lunch and provide companionship. Fast-forward eight months: when I visit, the house is immaculate, the refrigerator is stocked with plenty of nutritious food that can be reheated in the microwave, and my dad is in good spirits with his new routine. His caregiver is reliable, responsible, personable, and willing to spend time with my dad doing her work but also sharing a cup of coffee and a board game. I can't tell you what a relief it is to know that Dad is well taken care of!
