    The caregivers that assist my parents are there 5 days a week/ 3 hours per day. They cook dinner each day (pre agreed menu options), they do light cleaning to include dusting, wiping up floors, cleaning bathroom, ironing, changing sheets, doing laundry and once or twice a week they do grocery shopping for staple items( milk, bread, eggs, lunchmeat, ice cream etc). After the first two weeks one of the caregivers decided to leave..so that was a minor hiccup but the Client Care Coordinator has been terrific. She’s responsive, proactive and very easy to work with. I appreciate our line of communication with each other. The two caregivers that we now have arrive on time and my parents have really adapted to having them there. We are very pleased with our choice of selecting to work with Home Instead for our parents.

    Home Instead provides care for my Mom 30 plus hours 5 days a week. I really appreciate that the Lead Client Care Coordinator was able available to start care services for her immediately. My Mom enjoys the care givers she says they are very nice and helpful. Anytime we need any assistance with any questions or requests the agency responds ASAP.

    For the past 7 years we have used Home Instead Senior Care from the Perrysville office in Pittsburgh, PA for my elderly mother. They have been wonderful. My mother has dementia and they take care of all aspects of her care which has enabled mom to stay in her home. Her caregivers are trained in memory care skills and over the years have kept mom active outside of the home as well as help continue mom's interest in her house plants and other home activities. Mom's caregivers have been warm and caring. We consider them to be a part of our extended family. We have peace of mind using Home Instead.

    home health care aid and just a driver who can push me in a wheelchair. yes they are on time or have a good reason for being a little late. interactions are fine - workers are competent and caring - excellent match with my two very different requests. my only regret is that agencies do not pay workers more and offer them some medical benefits

    The staff was just wonderful. We hired them for my mom, but the caregiver was terrific with my dad who had dementia. They cooked and cleaned. They carried on conversations with mom and dad. They were also willing to stay longer, if they were able and it was needed. I highly recommend this agency.

    Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care

    Home Instead employs experienced, trained Care Pros who are able to provide person- focused dementia care for seniors who are living with Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, or other forms of dementia. These Care Pros offer personal care services, along with the following:

    • Assistance in establishing a stable daily routine
    • Meal preparation
    • Positive reinforcement
    • Assistance with social skills
    • Transportation to and from appointments, errands, and visits with loved ones

    Care Pros in this role take time to understand clients’ life histories and to focus on the person they were before dementia. Just as with the company’s personal care services, each dementia care client undergoes a comprehensive assessment and is assigned a care plan. This plan is reviewed regularly and adjusted to meet changing needs.

Transportation services from Home Instead can be arranged at predetermined drop-off and pick-up times, or Care Pros can accompany aging adults on errands and provide assistance and care throughout.

    Many aging adults face isolation and loneliness. This is especially true for those who’ve lost a spouse or who don’t have family close by. Home Instead Care Pros strive to build meaningful connections with clients. Companions visit seniors regularly on a schedule that works best for the client. These visits offer seniors a time to enjoy meaningful conversation while engaging in a game of cards, a puzzle, time outdoors, or other activities.

They have been with us and for us every step of the way. I would recommend them to anyone.”

We get along really well and she is really nice. we also have a lot of fun together,” while another client’s family member provided a raving review of Home Instead, saying, “It was wonderful dealing with the staff. Charlene was extremely helpful and very accommodating to our needs and schedule. She worked very long and hard to make sure that everything was in order and everything would run very smoothly. She is still in contact with us and helping us in any way she can.”

    How Much Does Home Instead Charge for Home Care?

    Home care costs vary based on several factors, including the type of services required, how often one needs assistance, and the timing of the services (i.e., overnight vs. daytime care). Where you live also has a significant impact on the cost of home care, as national chains scale their local prices to the cost of living in a given area.

    When planning for home care costs, keep in mind that the national average cost is about $26 per hour, though prices in your location may be higher or lower. You can contact a Family Advisor to learn more about home care costs and payment options in your area.
