Home Care Reviews for Home Instead - Ocala, FL

I am a current client of this provider

We decided not to do Assisted Living and instead go with an In-Home Care. We have been using Home Instead of Ocala for about two months now. They are fantastic, and it is really going well. They are doing bathing-help and dressing-help. They also do home food preparation, shopping, and light cleaning. The caregiver's attitude is fantastic. They are really good: a 10 out of 10.

I got indirectly involved in a placement from your agency. The primary parties interviewed three agencies and selected Home Instead. Mary went to the house and interviewed the client. The primary parties were very impressed with her and the information she provided. Once Home Instead was selected the next step was placement of a companion. Obvious care went into this process with excellent results. The family is very pleased and hs extended the service from two days to three. Thanks for you caring attitude. Dave

The Home Instead caregivers were responsible and reliable. They allowed us to keep our mother in her home for much longer than we would have been able to without them.The scheduling staff was always able to accomodate our needs in an emergency. The care givers were caring and patient with our mother and mother counted many of them as her friends. They were great!
