Home Care Reviews for Home Instead - Hamden, CT

I am a current client of this provider

The agency has on two different occasions sent aides from midnight to 6AM and is currently, as in the past, sent aides from noon to 3PM to take care of my husband. The daytime aides always arrive on time and spend time playing games, helping with chores, exercising my husband, putting him to bed for his nap and thus giving me an opportunity to have time to myself for outside interests. On the rare occasion over the years that I have used Home Instead, if there has been any concern it has been handled professionally, and immediately.

My mother suffers from dementia and I have been using Home Instead for her care needs for the past few months. Andrew and staff have been responsive, caring and flexible with meeting her ever changing needs. I have been impressed with each aide who I have met. I look forward to working with the Home Instead staff for years to come.

The staff were kind and caring. There was excellent communication so I knew how Mom was doing. The agency was supportive to both Mom and me during her illness. The caregivers were able to teach us how to interact in the most helpful way with Mom.
