    First, I like that the owner came and met with me at home to suit my schedule. Second, I am very pleased with our caregiver. She is professional and on time, caring, knows what to do under various circumstances, and is on top of things. We communicate with written notes and she texts me daily about how the day is going. It is a great help that she does some housekeeping, laundry, and meal assistance.

    This Home Health Care Agency is fantastic. I asked them to engage in some companion care for my mom who's in an Assisted Living Facility with her hubby. I figured having someone go out for a quick hello, car ride, lunch, walk or to engage with them in activities at the facility would lift the spirits and give them something to look forward to. They have a companion going out twice a week who has been wonderful and she's very sweet and they look forward to her visits. She takes them out for drives, has gone to lunch with them, and has taken my mom to a couple of appointments. I trust her with no reservations, and so appreciate her. Given the decent amount of dementia my mom has (and her husband), it can't be an easy relationship. Doreen, the care manager, is wonderful to work with, and always so kind and responsive. My mom is a fairly high need client, and I feel like I'm always throwing something else at Doreen. She is sweet and understanding. I love their family room center, where the companion aide always leaves a message. I would not hesitate to recommend these guys in a heartbeat. Very great organization. So happy to have found them.

    I wish that I had known that this service was available sooner. After trying a couple of other unsatisfactory services, it was a relief to find Home Instead.

    Very professional, fast reply to questions and concerns. Used another service which I would no longer recommend, but have had no major problems or issues with Home Instead. Would highly recommend.

    My mother who was in the early stages of Alzheimer's came to live with us when my stepfather fell and fractured his hip. Since both my husband and I work, a friend suggested Home Instead. Mom's caregivers were very kind, patient and reliable. Since my husband is self employed Home Instead was great about schedule changes. I felt very comfortable having them care for mom.
