We are using Home Instead Senior Care for my mom. They are amazing. I called them on a Monday morning, and they came and interviewed my mom on Monday afternoon to find out exactly what type of caregivers we required. By Thursday, I had somebody in place. My mother has advanced-stage dementia. She cannot drive anymore, so she needs a companion to bring her to exercise class, food shopping, the library, and everything that that she needs to do. Unfortunately, my mom has taken a fall, so, right now she is not active. They are just making sure that she is walking with a walker, helping her bathe, and giving general full-time aide. The caregiver is very caring and very understanding. In working with a patient with dementia, you have to have a lot of patience as there is a lot of confusions that arises. I chose them because they sounded like the right fit, and when I am asking questions, I am getting back what I am hoping to hear. They fulfill my expectations.

I have been in touch with Home Instead in my area, they have identified a person to help us at home, and my husband is happy. Everything turns out for the better. We tried two or three caregivers at the beginning, and finally we found the right one for my husband. She comes absolutely on time. She is very attentive to my husband's needs, and she is quite discreet, which is also very important to us. The company follows up just to make sure that what the people tells them is true. I really appreciate that.

I did know about Home Instead Senior Care long time ago. I've heard about them, and I would say they are very good. The aide was very compatible and very professional. If you didn't like one, you can always try another. We didn't have to try another one because the first one they sent was excellent. The man who runs the company does a thorough job to come visit the client first. I just felt it was very good. The caregiver was prompt, friendly, and very kind. I have no complaints at all. I had a 100% success with everything. It was a short term, but it was very good. There are always there to answer any question, and when you call them, there's always someone there.
