Home Care Reviews for Home Instead Senior Care - Palmyra, PA

I am a past client of this provider

I would circle all 5 stars if I were commenting on our main caregiver, Sue. She always did the most she could for my dad's stepmother. Most of all, making them happy brings laughter into their home. She saw and took care of their needs before they had a chance to ask. She did so many extras for them and was always happy to do them. As teaching Yahtzee to my dad and then enjoying the tournament they had for a year. My dad and stepmother loved her. Overall I give them 4 stars because of some misunderstandings with scheduling that caused anxiety.

Thank you for all of you and your caregivers do for my dad. All of you brighten his day and keep him vital, sharp and engaged each time you see him. All of you are essential to his daily existence. I cannot thank you enough.

Rosemary's service has exceeded all of my expectations. As my mother's POA, she has assisted me with coordinating all other services as well when my mother broke her foot. Mother loves the aides.
