Caregivers at Home Instead, in general, are eager to be caregivers and appropriately interact with their charge.We have had several caregivers that we think are exceptional caregivers who are able to anticipate my husband's needs, and who are very patient with him. One caregiver also made it a point to get my husband out of the house on a day that was completely arranged by him. That is something that he doesn't get to do during the week when he has so many medical appointments. Sadly, that caregiver is no longer with the company. And the current caregivers' cars cannot accommodate him because of his stiffness. We are still hoping, though. I do wish that the caregivers could drive our vehicle. I have added our personal (private) caregiver to our insurance, but I cannot add a caregiver who works only one day a week--the cost is prohibitive. I wish the company had some way to insure it's caregivers even if it means charging the client a modest fee.
Everyone talk to is always so professional and caring. The caregivers are very professional and really do care about their clients. I feel very comfortable leaving my mother with them while I'm at work.
When I first contacted Home Instead I just them because they gave me a feeling of comfort to take care of my Mom. Through the beginning of the process we did hit a few bumps in the road as far as the changing of caregivers. My Mom had attached to Delmy and was upset when she lost her. She did however get Krittaya and is very attached to her also. Whenever she talks about her time with Krittaya she smiles. She also has Lucinda which was someone she had in the beginning but because we changed the schedule she was not available. She does have Lucinda back now and also enjoys her time with her. My Mom will be 95 in September and I just want her cared for as long as possible in her own home.
HISC provides everything my dependent parents need to continue living at home. The caregivers are all very organized, attentive and professional, and the house is always clean and orderly. They genuinely care about both of my parents, and provide them with wonderful companionship. In addition, they are very knowledgeable about what to do when there is a crisis or an unusual situation. This has contributed to my parents' continuing stability and happiness at home, and our family feels so fortunate to have Home Instead's caregiving services.
I appreciate the one on one care given to my Mother with the same care giver each time they come. Our care giver Lisa,seems to have a genuine concern with my Mother.

I am very impressed with the response time from Home Instead.
My Mom came down with a terrible case of laringitis and a bad cold and needed some help. I called Home Instead and they arranged for someone to go to her house that afternoon.
The employees are very caring and helpful and always take extra time to communicate with me about how my Mom is doing.
I highly recommend their services .
Kyla the supervisor and Lisa the caregiver are excellent and VERY professional! Lisa makes great conversation with my mom and she is gently assertive, which is absolutely necessary as seniors seem to get stubborn as they age. I am thankful she seems to "connect" with my mom.
Lisa always leaves my parents home cleaner than when she arrived and she is beginning to "anticipate" my parents needs.
She makes their lives easier, and with all the stress going on with my mother's medical issues, Lisa is just what they need.
Thank you Home Instead; thank you Lisa!
What do I like? Everything about our experience! Professionalism and excellent service from the office and administration. Great communication, and wonderful, caring people. Caregivers - professional, well trained - and very wonderful at building a relationship with my mother. Everyone we have had occasion to speak with, or deal with is obviously well trained and knowledgeable - and compassionate and caring! Thank you so much!

The care giver really knows how to work with my husband. She is diplomatic, compasionate and kind.
He was adamant about not having help and now he looks forward to her visits. BUT he doesn't have a clue as to the real reason for her visits.
Thank you for my peace of mind!
