I Am A Past Client Of This Provider

I had some help from Home Instead and they were excellent. They came out for a couple of months to help me twice a week for three hours a day. They got along with my mom fine. She needed memory care and the caregiver read the bible with her. She did a lot of things to keep her occupied and did a few things around the house, but I was more interested in her just keeping my mom company while I ran a few errands. My mom enjoyed her very much, and I did too, and she was a perfect fit, but I can't afford to do that with them because their rate is $24 an hour. They did dusting, and a little vacuuming. She was capable of taking her bath, but she had a bad hip, so she had to be watched. The caregiver was very good, upbeat, and uplifting.
