I like and appreciate how Home Instead is always able to meet my needs, and with flexibility. It's reassuring having someone you know you can depend on. In the past, I used the services for my mother in another state, and was happy that Home Instead was able to help me out, especially during her final days. And now that I use the services myself, it's especially important that I knew about this service already for myself.Thank you.

My 100 yr old father and 98 year old mother were recently driven from their home due to damages incurred during Hurricanes Laura and Delta. We had to relocate them to an apt in Houston,TX on very short notice (3 days) due to the emergency. Having utilized Home Instead in our hometown for a number of years, I made a call to this Home Instead agency in Houston. The response was fast and Home Instead had us set up and receiving care for my parents within just days of the call. We have 2 providers for my parents, both of whom have been very good with my parents. The followup from Home Instead has been great. We are very pleased with the responsiveness, the quality of services and the quality of caregivers provided by Home Instead.

Home Instead helped my family tremendously during a sudden unexpected medical crisis. All of their Caregivers are hard-working and friendly, and most importantly willing to take constructive criticism and feedback. They were able to help me out right away when I needed someone to start assisting my family same-day, and they also took the Covid19 situation very seriously with their Caregivers wearing masks the entire time that they were inside my home. I highly recommend them, Miss Violet and Miss Lisa in particular do a great job.

I have been very happy with the care and consideration for my healthcare needs. The staff typically arrives on time. The arrival time is so dependable that if they are late I am concerned, almost all the caregivers are excellent and the few that were not I didn't have them come back: that was along time ago. I give Home Instead an A!

Home Instead was the best decision we made for the care of my mother. The scheduling process was easy and the caretaker is wonderful. Christine quickly bonded with mom and was a true blessing. My mother loved her companionship, caring nature and all around attitude. In fact, we were just increasing her time each week. Thank you ladies. You are such a blessing.

Giver was attentive, and asked to help, instead of waiting to be asked to help.

I was very pleased with the individual caretakers and with the care manager. For the most part, they were responsive to the needs of my parents, and the manager was easily accessible via phone. I was not as impressed with the administration/billing. We were never provided with any basis for the the hourly rate, which seemed almost to be assigned at random. Then, as my father's physical condition improved, the hourly rate dropped, but again, we could never figure out what criteria the agency was using to assign the rate. After consultation with the manager and the owner, we were able to agree on an appropriate rate, but the billing department didn't quite keep up, and I could never reach anyone from the billing department to sort it out. Eventually, we just wrote a check for an amount that seemed to match what we had agreed, even though it wasn't the amount on the bill.
