"We had considered attempting to find a private caregiver instead of signing with a service. However, four considerations prompted us to discard that idea: 1) Many of the private sitters want to be paid "under the table" so as not to report the earnings 2) If he/she would receive an injury on the job, we would be responsible 3) A "no-show" on a scheduled day would leave us with no other options 4) a lack of essential training for proper handling and procedures was a concern. Home Instead came to our home and conducted a walk-through evaluation, explained and reviewed their requirements and policies for all aspects of their services. Although we prefer having the same caregiver each time, it is necessary to have an alternate. Home Instead calls beforehand to inform us when our regular one cannot come, and that is appreciated. Thus, far we have been very pleased with the service and it has given both of us peace of mind regarding needed assistance."
