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.

Good francise - perhaps the best. They are diligently looking for and working on any improvements they can make.

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.
