I would tell others that I have been pleased with the services. I've only used them three times, so it's been fine. I can say they are reliable the times I've use them. I get the services when I need them. The caregivers are able to meet my needs, and they have fulfilled the main reason why I have the services.

Home Instead Senior Care's caregivers are friendly and sociable. We have a problem with some of the caregivers interacting with my wife when I am there because she will want to hang out with me instead of her caregivers. It gives me a relief when I'm not there though.

We were very pleased with the caregiver of Home Instead. There was a little communication problem initially in getting things set up. We were told they were going to start out on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, but they didn’t have it on the schedule after I was assured that was taken care of. People were supposed to call me back, and they didn’t. Finally, I got a hold of the lady, who I initially had talked to at our home, and she told me that somebody was going to be here on Monday after Thanksgiving, which she did. Then we really liked the caregiver, and we’d have her come back again if we could. We just had some communication bumps in getting started with them.
