We're using Home Instead right now for my wife. I haven't had any problems at all since they've sent me all good people, and they've been a great help. Now, I'm having them 24 hours a day. They send out the bill twice a month. I am happy with them.

If I were only rating the actual caregivers, I would have given them 5 stars our of 5. I hired this company for my 87-year-old mom and she has grown very fond of the ladies who come 3 times a week during the day to help with light chores, provide companionship, get her to doctor's appointments, and just make sure she is safe & secure while I am at work. BUT the fault lies with the person, Susie, who apparently does the scheduling and has been less than satisfactory in her dealings with mom. Despite being assured numerous times that mom would not be subjected to a revolving door of new caregivers week after week, mom still has complete strangers knocking at her door at 9am saying that they've been sent over to care for her. We get the feeling Susie does not care even a little bit whether mom (or I) are pleased with her company's service or whether we continue on as clients. She didn't even bat an eye when, after yet another complete stranger showed up at mom's door this morning, we fired the company on the spot. So beware .... the care is superior (kudos to all the ladies mom encountered) but the administrators are less than trustworthy.
Provider Response

Greetings Ms. Grassano, Thank you for your kind comments and superior rating of your mother's CAREGivers. Finding the right people is the most challenging part of what we do.

Most importantly, thank you for letting us know of your concern regarding multiple CAREGivers arriving to serve your mother. I am grateful you have given us another chance. I have personally discussed your concern with our General Manager, Quality Assurance Specialist and Staffing Coordinator. Our desire is the same as yours which is to have the same CAREGiver on a consistent basis and if a change has to take place that everyone is notified. I apologize this did not initially happen in your situation. We identified where our process broke down and have strengthened our resolve that customer service must be the cornerstone of our business.

?Thank you again for trusting us with your mother's care.

I was very impressed with the gentleman from Home Instead Senior Care that came in and talked to me. We've been using them for about three months now. The people who comes in are very efficient. They provided companionship and light housekeeping for my father.
