I don't have any complaints about the quality of service of the caregivers at Home Instead Senior Care: Harrisburg; however, there are too many different caregivers that come here. It is much better for my wife if she has one or two main caregivers. The caregivers come here every day Monday through Saturday. The management's service is very good in terms of scheduling and billing.

When we have had problems with a caregiver, Home Instead addressed them promptly and professionally. Because of that, I am confident that my loved one is in good hands.

My mother is receiving care from Home Instead. She has fallen in love with her care giver. The support Home Instead gives is exceptional ~ a huge comfort to us as a family.

My mother is currently a client of Home Instead and has been for a couple years. They are great to work with. I would recommend them to anyone I know. Their caregivers are kind and compassionate, hard working and dependable. We can rely on someone always being there, even if the regular caregiver cannot be.

My mother came to live with me after suffering a fall which thankfully did not cause harm. However, she suffers from dementia; therefore, she could not live on her own. I got Home Instead involved due to my busy work schedule and I could not have asked for a more competent group of care givers. Home Instead assigned 3 care givers to my mom and they were all professional, kind and caring. In addition, the administrators at Home Instead understood the importance of consistency when dealing with a person who has dementia so they went out of their way to make sure that when one of the 3 care givers was on vacation or sick one or both of the remaining two care givers would step in. My mother unfortunately required a more structured setting and is now in a skilled nursing facility but I will always be thankful for Home Instead and the wonderful care they provided.
