Home Instead has great caregivers. And they are great at helping me navigate dementia with my mother.

I have been with Home Instead from the onset. Prior to their selection, I interviewed several candidates which offered competitive profiles. By far, Home Instead left the best impression. Home Instead provides expert in-home care to my wife, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer's 3 years ago. I provided her care for the first two years, but as her condition progressed, it became obvious she needed more full-time attention. I have been very impressed and satisfied with the first person Home Instead offered for my wife's care. She is a college graduate with a background in physiology. While still in college she did an internship in elder care. In the ensuing months, she has progressed from companion care to personal care, providing outstanding support at each level.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I was looking for an Homecare Agency for my mom who needs daily assistance. I was able to find a list of home care agency On Caring.com and I found Home Instead Senior Care. I find them very excellent. The people that they send out are very knowledgeable. They are geared towards taking care of elderly adults and they are very good at what they are doing. I'm very satisfied with how they treat and assist my mother.
