Home Care Reviews for Home Instead - Honolulu, HI

July 30, 2013

I interviewed this provider

We were very pleased with the home care worker who assisted us in caring for my wife, before it was necessary to relocate my wife to a care home. The worker whatever was needed, and with a very cheerful manner. This despite the fact that my wife was quite demanding, in that she was uncomfortable and unable to stay in one place for any length of time. We originally had the worker come during the weekends, but eventually added late afternoons on weekdays, as my daughter and I were burning out with caregiving. Our worker accommodated to our increasing care needs, for which we were most appreciative. We especially liked the fact that the worker showed genuine interest in talking to my wife about all sorts of things, and we felt these conversations had a positive impact on my wife's well being. All on all, our home care worker deserved a five star rating!

unreliable, don't keep their word

Don't use this agency. They sent a CNA to my friend who spent her time on the cell phone and argued with family over the phone using swear words in front of my neighbor which intimidated my frail neighbor. My neighbor was left in a very wet diaper when the caregiver left. She got rash and an infection soon after that. They promised a to return a part of her deposit for this but that was months ago. My neighbor paid thousands and got nothing back. Find a better agency if you can but don't use this one.
