Generally happy with the care from my regular caregiver. I feel I have gotten to know her and she has gotten to know me.

My caregiver is thorough and she does not waste time. I cannot believe all she does in a short amount of time.

Home Instead Senior Care is who I have now; it has been about a year. I think they do a very good job. They’re usually very cooperative. They do their best to make sure that they can schedule people when they need them.
