I Am A Past Client Of This Provider
I used to be a client of Home Instead. I primarily needed help transferring from one place to another. They also never refused to do what I asked them to do, like small housekeeping. The caregivers were very good, but I was not very happy with the billing. They had a minimum bill for three hours of work and I didn't want to go over that, but sometimes I had to pay for the extra just because their workers clocked out late.
I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident
We got Home Instead for my mom, and they provide companionship. The caregiver makes sure my mom eats, takes her on walks, shopping, and they have a very good relationship. They come twice a week, 4 hours at a time, but recently it's 8 hours, and the same caregiver comes every time. Billing is fine.
