Home Care Reviews for Home Instead - Victoria, TX

April 13, 2017

I am a past client of this provider

The planning and the paperwork with Home Instead were all done, I made my deposit, and their first day of service was scheduled, but they did not show up. That was on a Monday morning, and they were supposed to have shown up at 7:30 with the caregiver and a person from administration; neither person showed up. I got a call after 8 o’clock telling me that they were not available that day. The next morning, they never called and said they were coming the next day, but nothing. Monday, I didn’t hear anything from them. Tuesday morning as I was leaving to go to work, a substitute individual showed up, but I had to apologize and tell them that I could not stay and do the acquaintance interview because I was already late for an appointment and that I had already made other arrangements for the day. I didn’t hear from anyone until Wednesday afternoon, and I told them at that point that I was still thinking about it and that I will call them back. I called them back late Wednesday and told them that I had decided not to use their services, which was left with the message, and no one called back that day. Thursday afternoon, someone from the administration called back, and I told them I would not be using their services. They were only interested in providing someone for Friday, so I told them that that wasn’t necessary because I had already made arrangements and that I wanted my deposit back. They told me my deposit would not be available until Tuesday of the following week. I did not receive it or a call on Tuesday of the following week. Wednesday, I made an in-person appearance at their office in Victoria and requested my deposit back. They did not have it ready, and I had to wait. Eventually the check was prepared and given to me. It started out nice, but when it was time for actual services to occur, it was not.
