They have helped her with her self care and they interact with her. I like that caregiver that comes to my home.

They have helped her by cooking for her. They come right to me, and they take my mother to all her doctor appointments.

They are average. It is easier because I can get away from the home. They are prompt and they are very caring for my loved one.

It varies. I need it for sure. If I didn't have it, my quality of life would be pretty bad. I would say that they are very reliable when they schedule someone to come. Sometimes when I have cancelled, they still show up. Overall, it is a good service. I don't think they know me very well or know the people that they hire. They need to match us better.

The girl I have now got done with work and then sat down, scratched her head, and started picking scabs. It makes me sick. I would like them to hire better people.

They have been a good companion. One of the caregivers was on their laptop the entire time trying to get car insurance.

They have helped me by doing things like the laundry, sweeping and mopping the floor, and doing the dishes. They are the only one that I have had. I am satisfied with them.

Without them, I couldn't survive. They keep me from being depressed, they keep my home beautiful, and they help take care of my pets. I have a caregiver who actually made it possible for me to be able to get a brand new heating system in my home. She went over and above what a caregiver would do.

They help Donna with her bedding, tidy up her room, and wash her dishes. It's all been beneficial to her because she can't do it by herself. They are very friendly and nice.

I need my nurse to be here more often so that I can get done what I need. It seems like she takes off quite a bit, so I have to use my sister to help me when she isn't here to do her job. They are a pretty good company that is run by good people. I was recommended by someone to them.

I look forward to seeing them when they are gone. They are good people and they listen to me, and if I have to call in with a problem, they will fix it.

They help because they are local and we are not. The caregivers are really good with my loved one.

I have to take care of my husband and the caregiver does things that I need her to do. I have no complaints. They do a good job.

By Janice Y

I am a current client of this provider

I have a body that won't let me clean my house anymore, so the caregiver takes care of all of that for me. I put things down on the list, and she does everything that I have on the list. I would refer someone to them because the caregiver that I have is outstanding. I couldn't wish for anyone better.

She can't do much for herself and it makes it a lot easier for her. The caregivers are dependable and they do what they are suppose to do.

I always know they are coming. With the other services, I never know when they are coming until they are here. They are consistent and compassionate.

Home Instead does all the things I can't do. The help is amazingly conscientious.

I like the girl I currently have, but I've had one that was poor. If I ask someone to vacuum, shouldn't they vacuum? I like the girl that comes now. She helps me with cooking.

They are very attentive, and they stay on top of everything very well. I think the companionship has helped me most. They go out with me to the grocery store and things like that.

I am a past client of this provider

Most of the caregivers were very friendly and caring. I didn't have to worry about my parent's overnight care. Although, the caregivers weren't that knowledgeable and need to be better trained on how to deal with people that have dementia.

The people that work there, the aides, are really friendly, caring, and sweet. They take good care of me. They're just like my best friends. They're there every day. They're very special to me.

They show up, and the caregivers are good and trained and know what they are doing. They engage with her, they don't just let her sit around, and they do activities together.

They communicate very well if someone is going to be late. Home Instead talks a bigger game about their caregivers than their actual pool of caregivers to choose from allows. The person that we ultimately got from them was the right person. They were really good at what we asked them to do.

I appreciate my caregiver, that they clean and change my bedding, and they do the laundry. My caregiver is wonderful to me. I've had multiple mini strokes and cannot speak very well. My caregiver talks to me and she listens to me, even though I can't talk well. She listens to me every time.

The caregivers have been pretty good so far. They do what they're supposed to do. There's one caregiver that I really like. They help me with my wash. They cook a little bit if I want them to.

The caregivers and the office staff are very quick to act in moments of crisis. If I happen to need help on a different day than they usually come, they will get someone for me. They have been doing the chores that I need done and they'll take me to the store if I need to.

They're good to me. They're understanding and they listen to me. They wash my clothes and fix my bed. They vacuum for me.

They can communicate better in regards of scheduling and home visits. They come and get my loved one ready and he goes off to rehab for the day.

Home Instead has good service. They care about me. They were recommended to me by a friend. There are things that I try to do and I shouldn't do, and they help me. I've been very blessed. Everybody has been good.

They are really good at cleaning and jumping into new situations. They are really good at this. They do the laundry for us to help with my loved one's needs.

Home Instead's caregivers are very nice and caring. Knowing that I can trust the person staying with my mom while I'm not home has made my life easier.

They are nice people but they aren't very knowledgeable. They have helped me by driving me to places I need to go to.

I had a good caregiver for around 3 months. But now, I never know if I will have a caregiver or not. They don't call me before to let me know. They're just messy. I am a diabetic. I never know if caregiver will be coming. My daughter went out of town. I only had an aide for one day while she was gone.

They are easy to talk to and get a hold of on the phone. They are accommodating when I have questions. They have given me flexibility and they let me go shopping. They gave me my life back.

I have already told people about Home Instead. I tell everyone about it. I didn't like my first aide right away, but then we talked and we were hooked. She does what I ask. The caregivers are like family to me. They take care of things that I need and make things convenient for me before they leave. They clean up.
