They are so messed up in the office. One of the aides is excellent. The office just is so confused.

They did what I asked them to. She didn't talk back to me and helped me get to where I wanted to go on time.

In all the years that we have been with them, we have never had any big problems. They are very dependable.

They are always here on time, they tell me that they are going to be here, and they are. Before Home Instead was here, I had to do everything for my daughter, and now I can get out of the house and do some shopping.

The workers are very nice. They provide compassion and help me with my everyday things that I have to do.

They are too expensive. We cannot afford it. They give us what we need. The caregiver bathes my husband and I cannot do it.

I would tell a friend that Home Instead is very good and they're cooperative. The caregivers have helped with the housekeeping.

I would tell a friend that the company could not get any better because of my experience with them. Everything they do makes my life easier. If I need to go to the store, they go out of their way to take me. If I cannot go, then they go for me. I can trust them with my food stamp card or my money. I trust them, have no worries.

They should have people show up when they are supposed to and let me know when they aren't going to show. They wouldn't show up when they said that they would. The office and caregiver seemed to have terrible communication.

The caregiver is excellent. The office staff is hard to reach and I have had trouble getting someone out. They might cancel. Because of the one gentleman, he is very professional and a good talker and good with my husband.

They've really helped me with going to the grocery store and cleaning. They wash my back in the bath because I can't do it, and they really help with washing the legs too.

I couldn't depend on them to do anything. I never saw the same caregiver more than once. They were pretty poor. If they got decent people there it would have been more helpful. They don't have enough good caregivers to care for all the elderly.

I can leave my loved one in their hands and not worry. They take really good care of her, and I am appreciative of them. They have taken so much stress off of me.

I like the services because it allows me to stay home. I don't have to worry about as many things with them helping me.

They should make sure that he has available person to provide the care he needs. They should provide consistent caregivers.

I am a past client of this provider

There are some of the people who are more outgoing than others and really get into the job and try to relate to the person they are attending to. They were just there for me. It was assuring that someone would be there if anything happened.

I have recommended them to others. They come to my home and are trustworthy because I have to go to work. She would be in a nursing home without them. They are here for my mom to make sure she doesn't fall and they are her companion.

Home Instead helps me a lot. They are fantastic. They take me grocery shopping. I can't get around without Home Instead.

My caregiver is sensitive and makes me feel comfortable while getting a bath, helping me get dressed, and putting on lotion. I am a widow, I have MS, and I live alone, with no family near by. If I didn't have Home Instead it would be really hard for me. The main thing I need is to have my meals prepared for me.

The lady that comes goes to the store and mops around the fridge. She cleans the bathroom and changes the bed. I have a problem with the Wednesday caregiver. I ask her to change the linens, but she refuses to unless they're soiled. She doesn't clean the bathroom, either.

Their people are compassionate, and they do the best that they can to work with your schedule. They give my wife and I a break from caring for my mother.

There is someone that comes six days a week, works really well with him, and knows how to handle his attitude. They've helped him out with his daily living, which has helped me so that I don't have to bring my kids out there and do the care myself.

They're pleasant and very nice people. The workers I've had always do what I ask them to and they do a very fine job.

They could improve their communication and they need more hands-on help. The caregiver calls out a lot and the care is inconsistent. It's good when it's here, but they aren't consistent and it makes it makes it worse when they aren't here.

March 16, 2018

By Mildred Z

They are a great company with a great office. When the caregiver is here, I am able to do what I want while he is taken care of.

When caregivers call out, it would be great if they had fill-ins to take over their shift. No one shows up if a caregiver calls in sick. They could communicate better and have more of an effort to provides needs as far as scheduling.

Home Instead needs to improve their scheduling process. I am able to go to work because of the care.

By Hugh P

I have a very good caregiver who works very well and is very compassionate and caring. The caregiver comes in and she's gotten to know us and knows what we expect at the time she comes. She comes in and independently does what I need her to do.

The caregivers that I had were nasty to me. I had one aide that scrubbed me like I was a piece of sandpaper. The other aide that I liked got in trouble because they picked me up before she was supposed to get me for that day. With one aide, it was excellent, but the way that they fired my aide was unacceptable. It was not fair that they fired her.

I keep the same girls. I don't get a different girl every time. We get to know each other. They are companions to me and help me cook.

February 12, 2018

By Anne M_1

I am a past client of this provider

The people that were sent were very often late. There was no consistency in the person that was coming. My loved one has dementia and needs to have a regular caregiver. The caregiver took my husband to daycare and dropped him off at the wrong place so he was wandering around the parking lot. I would have liked Home Instead to send one caregiver that was on time and be able to listen to what I said.

I would tell someone the caregivers from Home Instead are very good. My life is easier because the caregivers help service my needs, but running errands or whatever I need.

Home Instead has communication problems. The services from Home Instead have made life easier by helping out with some chores around the house so that there is less for me to do.

Home Instead is an outstanding service. The caregiver that comes does a nice job, and we get along great. If I need to call and change my schedule, I've never had any problems. The services help me clean and all of that. Since my wife passed away, I've needed help cleaning and taking a shower. It's great.

Home Instead is fine and does a good job. The services from Home Instead have helped to take some pressure off of me.

By Cheryl A_3

I would recommend Home Instead because the aides that are consistent about coming are great, but I don't like that they send a lot of different caregivers. Home Instead has made my life easier by caring for Doris because she could be hard to deal with.

By Beatrice L_1

I am a current client of this provider

I would tell a friend that Home Instead really helps me out in whatever I need them to. Home Instead makes my life easier by cleaning my home and all. Recently, I have gotten some new caregivers, and they do not help me as much as the other ones did. They do their work, but they slack.

Home Instead caregivers are thorough and ready to go above and beyond. I can put my trust in Home Instead. Home Instead's caregivers make sure my mother-in-law eats her meals and has help in the restroom when she needs it. They help her do the things that she wants to do but has trouble doing herself.

Some of the people are easy to get along with, but others aren't. Everything depends on the caregiver that you get. I have had Home Instead for a while, and the people that I have now are doing fine.

I have already referred Home Instead to people. When I go out, people ask me about Home Instead and I give them their number. I just had my leg amputated and Home Instead has been very patient and understanding. The caregivers come twice a day. I am happy with them.

By Sharon G_5

They intend on being here, they help getting around, they help with grocery shopping, the office staff is nice, and I can tell they care about me. Home Instead tells me to put my feet up after my knee replacements. They don't let me do anything. My caregiver cleans and cooks.

I would tell a friend that I have a really good caregiver who is on time and is just wonderful. My caregiver makes my life easier by helping me with anything that needs to be done, like personal hygiene and housework.
