"We started working with Home Instead 9 years ago after my mother lost her husband of 63 years. We continued working with them until the final week of Mom's life. We interviewed several agencies 9 years ago and something just stood out right from the start. I think it was the questions they asked about Mom's interests, life style, wishes. The provider they matched Mom with was a perfect fit. The two of them became fast friends over the years.
Home Instead stayed on top of things from the very beginning which was another reason we never changed agencies. The office kept track of what was going on through phone calls to Mom, visits to her house, and the provider's logs. Never once in 9 years did we have a concern or problem. That may sound like an exaggeration but it's not!!
When Mom's health deteriorated and we knew we would need more provider help and eventually hospice care, the office got right on the situation. Within a couple of days, we had the additional help we needed and I had met with a hospice representative to find out what steps we would need to take and how to proceed. Most importantly, Mom wasn't just a name in a log book or on a statement. The office staff knew Mom as a person. That was invaluable to both her and me. Home Instead made as much of a difference in my life as it did in my mom's."
