I have worked many jobs in my life some I even owned and I would take Home Instead over almost any of them.  Mike the owner is the most compassionate and understanding boss. He actually listens when you talk-how many men let alone bosses do that. Thank you, Mike, for allowing me to work for you. Sorry had to put a shout out for you. I have been with the company for a year and I hope I can add on a few more. The people that work there are great.  They have a workforce that works to make your job easier and done right.  They are there when you need them to help or just listen. Sometimes that is all someone needs. THANKS
