Home Care Reviews for Home Instead - Hickory, NC

We're using Home Instead Senior Care Hickory for my mom. We found out that they're charging us $20-$50 an hour, but they're paying the girls or the caregivers $8-$9 an hour. They overcharge for what they pay the girls. They originally promised to do 24/7 but they haven't been able to, so we had to fill in. Once in awhile someone didn't show up and we weren't notified. The attitude of the caregivers is very good, all the girls were really sweet and we like all of them that Home Instead has provided. At the moment they're doing everything for my mom like getting her into the bathroom, cooking, feeding, and cleaning. They're very good. The communication with the agency is very good.

5/29/2018--Current Client of 16 months C.J.O. says: I have been a Client of HISC for 16 months. During that time I have had the most dependable CAREGiver. She remains at my side when I do not feel well. She prepares three meals per day, from scratch to ensure I get proper nutrition. I trust her completely with all the duties of my household. I am so grateful to Hickory Home Instead Senior Care, for their services and discretion in hiring quality CAREGivers.

The service of Home Instead Senior Care has been good most of the time. The caregivers help me with the things that I can't do. The first caregiver they sent me was good, but the second one was not. Right now I've got a great caregiver. She's prompt, professional, and very caring. I hope she's with me for a while. Home Instead is a very professional company and they do background checks on their employees.
