My mother has Alzheimer's and needs assistance, but was very resistant to any type of care. She needed help and the rest of us knew it! When Home Instead Senior Care first started, mom was extremely rude to the caregiver. This behavior was not my mom- I could not believe her actions! Even though mom was rude to her, the caregiver was so gracious. She really understood the disease. Day by day and week by week mom became more comfortable. Mom went from not wanting to be in the same room with the caregiver, to eating lunch with her. Now, mom lets the caregiver drive her places, they cook together, work on projects together and much more. The office staff went to their home several times to provide support and suggestions. They even told us where to place grab bars in the bathroom! Without Home Instead Senior Care, I'm afraid my mother would be living in a facility. We are very thankful for Home Instead Senior Care!
They were so helpful when we needed help with my mother. She was being released from the hospital and needed around the clock care. A representative came to the hospital within an hour of our phone call to meet us and my mother and had a caregiver available to start that day so my mom could come home.

. We had a bad experience with this agency. Caregivers were repeatedly late and did not know how to transfer the patient and repeatedly dropped her. We have a log from the fire department on how many times they made a trip to my mothers house to get her up off the floor. The office staff is rude and unproffesional. When we called the office with a concern or problem, instead of being treated respectfully or with kindness they acted defensive and mad. Two of the office workers actually yelled at us. The last weekend before we fired this company, items were taken from my mothers house. We filed a police report but know we can't prove it. The owner said ""If you will look on the service agreement:
""Client understands that Home Instead Senior Care is bonded and insured for employee theft, breakage, and dishonesty. All loses require a police report and are payable upon conviction.""
He fully knows how hard it is to get a conviction.
One of the caregivers on that same week-end actually left my mother alone to go get herself a hamburger. We do have proof of that. I couldn't responsibly recommend this agency to anyone. The owner is unaccessible and you can't get anywhere with the office staff. You can't run a reputable company and not be involved. Do a lot of research. We hired this company in a pinch. You are putting your loved on in their care and you have to be able to communicate and trust them. They should never have left my mother alone as she is blind.
