Home Instead Senior Care knows there are times when you cannot be there for your senior loved ones living in their home. That is where we come in. At Home Instead, home care is personal to us, and we are there for DeLand families to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing you and your family members are in the best possible care.
Home Instead CAREGivers are experienced in providing the utmost quality senior care and have a passion for helping seniors live safe and fulfilling lives in their homes. Home Instead prides itself on hiring only those caregivers who possess an ability to be kind, caring, and compassionate in every situation.
Most seniors are not happy at the prospect of having to live in an assisted living community, as they do not want to give up the independence and comfort of their home. A vast majority of DeLand seniors wish to stay in their own homes as long as they can. Home Instead services allow them to do this, while also ensuring that they do not have to suffer for lack of help. Here are some of the in-home care services we provide:
Our 2018 CAREGiver of the Year, Jill M., is from DeLand, FL.
Jill is one of those remarkable souls that grew up a Caregiver and, after trying other occupations, found her way back to her true passion later in life. As a child, she learned about caring for seniors watching her mother care for her Grandma, and volunteering as a candy striper at her local nursing home in the ninth grade. She learned then, that seniors offer us "their life experiences containing the wisdom gained in their discovering themselves over the course of their entire lives. Their contributions should be celebrated! Our children are the true beneficiaries of the character and integrity that an elder's presence can bring into their lives". In midlife, Jill also moved her Dad in with her family to care for him. Later, Jill and her husband cared for his mom in their home as well. Legally blind and with severe emphysema, Jill enjoyed sharing meals with her mother-in-law and bonding while chatting and watching TV. Jill would paint her fingernails and help shower and dress her. Jill tells us "I did whatever she needed to make her happy. She once commented to her son "where did you get this lovely girl!". Jill continues to live in awe of seniors to this day.
Even though our office is located in Daytona Beach, our trained CAREGivers also serve DeLand, FL and the surrounding area. The entire city of DeLand is in our home care service area.
In a difficult situation with my mother, Home Instead was extremely accommodating, providing assistance quickly and providing guidance as the situation progressed. I'm also very pleased with both the management personnel and the care giver that I've interfaced with. All staff are pleasant to deal with and very knowledgable.
