"We've used Home Instead providers for my now-92-yr-old mom for a number of years, initially for a few hours daily and, most recently, for 24-hr care. The staff at the office has always been extremely accommodating to special requests, as well as finding substitute providers, even at the last minute, if the scheduled provider cannot be there. I've met all of the providers over the years, and they have been outstanding in terms of the direct services they are allowed to provide. The downside is that, probably for legal reasons, there are tasks they are not allowed to provide, such as administer medication. Because my mom needed 24-hr-care, coupled with the high cost of Home Instead, we recently moved her into a nursing home, which is less costly, and where nurses are allowed to administer medication. Were it not for cost and task-limitations, I would gladly have kept mom in her apartment with providers from Home Instead. Despite the limitations, I enthusiastically give Home Instead my highest recommendation, and would not hesitate to use them when fewer hours are needed and when medication can be self-administered."
