I am a current client of this provider

Our caregiver from Home Instead is very nice. We hired again from the same agency in New York as we did last year. My dad has dementia. The caregiver understands my dad’s needs very well and takes good care of him. I think the agency has done a good job. I like that they are upfront about everything. They even provided us with a wheelchair at no extra charge. The agency lady who talked to us was very polite and nice. We told her we needed somebody who speaks my dad’s language, and it’s very difficult to find an Indian caregiver. They really tried, though. The next day, they called me and asked what language my dad spoke. She asked if we wanted to hire someone who speaks my dad’s language despite not having a lot of experience with caregiving. I told them to not mind the language, just get the person who will take good care of my dad. My recommendation is that if they can find Indian caregivers, they should hire them.

I am a past client of this provider

I used Home Instead San Antonio to care for my Mom after a surgery. I cant express in words the grateful appreciation I have for the care they provided. The caregivers were awesome. My Mom is a former nurse and could be difficult at times and critical when getting assistance. They were always very kind and understanding. They went the extra step to provide the assistance she needed.
